We have been waiting in anticipation for Intel’s Skylake platform for a while now. We got a glimpse of what to expect as many motherboard manufacturers showed off their Skylake motherboards at Computex last month. Well the release dates for Intel’s Skylake processors and accompanying chipsets to support the processors have been revealed!
Microsoft will be launching Windows 10 on July 29, which is just a little over a week from now. It looks like Intel will be launching their flagship Skylake processors soon after. The initial launch is said to be happening at The Intel Extreme Masters Cologne on August 7th, where Intel will unveil the flagship Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K processors.
Intel is expected to debut its 6th Generation Core “Skylake” desktop processors at Gamescom 2015, which will take place August 5th – 9th in Cologne, Germany. Skylake will bring along with it the true successors to Haswell desktop parts by way of the Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K.
Intel Corporation today announced it has augmented its 5th generation Intel Core processor family. The company unveiled 10 desktop and mobile processors that boast new levels of performance, including Intel Iris Pro graphics on an Intel desktop processor in the LGA form factor for the first time. The flagship desktop processor, Intel Core i7-5775-C, delivers up to 35 percent better media performance and over 2x better graphics performance than the previous 4th gen 65-watt Intel Core i7-4790S with Intel HD graphics 4600 desktop processor.
It has been reported that Intel will officially launch their Broadwell desktop processors on June 2nd 2015. These include the Core i7-5775C and Core i5-5675C. The June 2nd launch date makes the launch just in time for Computex 2015, which kicks off that day.
The latest Intel PC Client Platform roadmap has been leaked, which shows the next several generations of processors from the company. Interesting that this roadmap goes from 2013 all the way through 2016. It shows us how Intel plans to launch the HEDT Skylake-E processors, the Skylake Refresh and Cannonlake, which will be based of a 10nm process design.
It looks like Intel is going all-in on their integrated graphics implementation on Skylake, which will leverage eDRAM caches. Intel says these chips will have up to 50% higher integrated graphics performance over Haswell.
Yesterday was AMD’s Investor Day presentation, led by CEO Lisa Su and CTO Mark Papermaster. One thing AMD really emphasized during the presentation was getting the CPU core design right. They announced that their “Zen” CPU core will offer a massive 40 percent increase in IPC (instructions per clock) or performance / clock over the existing “Excavator” CPU core.
Intel Corporation today announced the Intel Xeon processor E7-8800/4800 v3 product families, delivering accelerated business insight through real-time analytics and enhanced performance and reliability for mission-critical computing.
After a very long wait it looks like Intel has finally started shipping its first Core i5 and Core i7 Broadwell desktop CPUs to OEMs. Many of these OEMs are offering PCs featuring the Core i5-5675C and Core i7-5775C.
