Over the weekend specifications leaked of ten of Intel's upcoming Skylake-S desktop processors. This new platform will use the LGA1151 socket and will not be compatible with current Haswell hardware. Rumor has it that these processors will be officially announced at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, which takes places August 18-20.
The lineup includes two unlocked K-series parts with a TDP of 95W, as well as four models with a 65W TDP and another four models with a 35W TDP. All listed models support DDR3L-1600 and DDR4-2133 memory.
At the event, Intel will introduce Core i5-6600K and i7-6700K "unlocked" products for enthusiasts, along with Core i5-6400, i5-6500, i5-6600, i7-6700 mainstream 65 Watt SKUs, and Core i5-6400T, i5-6500T, i5-6600T, i7-6700T mainstream 35 Watt SKUs.
The Core i5-6600K and i7-6700K processors will be clocked at 3.5 GHz and 4 GHz, with a maximum Turbo Boost frequency reaching 3.9 GHz and 4.2 GHz respectively. Like Haswell-based Core i5s, the i5-6600K will have 4 CPU cores, 6 MB of L3 cache, and it will not support Hyper-Threading technology. The Core i7-6700K will come with enabled Hyper-Threading, and will have the size of L3 cache increased to 8 MB. Both models will be rated at 95 Watt TDP.
