The Chinese language edition of VR Zone
delivers exclusive news that Intel will be dumping FIVR (Full Integrated Voltage Regulator) in 2015 as it introduces its Skylake platform. The integrated voltage regulator was introduced with the Haswell platform but it appears Intel is going back to the traditional VRM design.
