Intel to offer unlocked Skylake-K processors for laptops

Intel revealed at its IDF in San Francisco that it will be launching unlocked Skylake-K processors for laptops later this year. Samples of upcoming Skylake-K based notebooks from MSI and EVGA were shown off on stage, and ASUS will also reportedly be offering Skylake-K based laptops.
Skylake has architecture efficiency benefits over previous generations but within a laptop any overclocking abilities are expected to be rather limited compared to what desktop users can achieve. It will be very interesting to see what cooling systems are employed in the upcoming hardware partner laptop designs.
On a related note, there was also a demonstration of a Thunderbolt 3 based external video card at the IDF. The concept of external video cards has been around for years but it still seems unlikely this is ever going to break through. Made by Inventec, the external graphics card comes in a rather slim enclosure and features an AMD Radeon R9 M385 or AMD Radeon R9 270X GPU. It has three USB 3.0 ports, two HDMI ports, two DisplayPorts, external audio, an Ethernet port and a USB 3.1/Thunderbolt 3 type-C port.
