Intel's Skylake processors are expected to show up in laptops toward the end of the year, according to a new report by FUD Zilla. The site writes Intel will have some quad-core Skylake-H processors in Q4 2015, with more versions to follow in Q1 2016 and onwards. Intel continues its push towards truly wireless computing with Skylake, some units are expected to incorporate wireless charging technology.
The company is commited to bring the Skylake in 2016 but we now have a more precise time-frame . Intel plans to launch a few Skylake-U 15W TDP Core i7 and Core i5 with more to come in Q1 2016. Most of Skylake-U 28W processors will arrive in Q1 2016.
Intel plans to refresh the Core M line of processors with four new Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) with Y-Processor like grade Skylake. The 14nm Skylake processor processor should have some significant power optimisations enabling significantly longer battery life and enabling the wireless charging possible.
Skylake-H will bring the four core SKU on the market starting with Q4 2015 and continuing with more units in Q1 2016 and onwards. This was the plan all along and we have reported back in the summer of 2014 that Skylake is scheduled for the later part of 2015.
Skylake will be succeeded by the 10nm Cannonlake but that part won't hit the market until late 2016 at the earliest.
