We're not sure if Intel suddenly had a change of heart but if the rumor mill is correct, the chip giant's non-K series "Skylake" processors will have overclocking support with adjustable BCLK, memory and iGPU overclocking settings:
With just a week left in Intel’s Skylake platform launch, we have received information from Benchlife that the standard Non-K (Unlocked) chips will feature overclocking support. While the first round of processors will be based around the Z170 chipset and K-Series, Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K processors, the rest of the line which is expected to debut a few weeks later will feature several regular (locked) and low TDP processors.
The first two Skylake CPUs, the Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K are expected to be released at Gamescom next week, the other non-K series chips should follow a couple of weeks later.
