Leaked slides reveal Intel Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X plans

Two leaked slides provide a glimpse of Intel's future plans for the consumer processor market. The roadmap hints at two new enthusiast lines from Intel, the images look a bit unprofessional but they originate from BenchLife, a site with a history of accurate Intel leaks.

It appears the chip maker is planning to launch the Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X processors in the second quarter of 2017. Both architectures will succeed the recently launched Broadwell-E and it appears Skylake-X is basically a new name for Skylake-E.

Just like Broadwell-E, the Skylake-X processor lineup will reportedly feature processors with six, eight or ten cores, and TDPs of 140W. Kaby Lake-X on the other hand will feature somewhat more mainstream parts, with four cores and a 95W TDP. These parts will have an unlocked multiplier.

The slide also confirms Kaby Lake's launch for the mobile platform is imminent and that the desktop versions and higher-power laptop models will follow towards the end of the year.

Another leaked slide reveals the features of Skylake-W, this chip will power the Basin Falls workstation platform. Skylake-W will use Socket R (LGA2011-3) and will feature CPUs with a 140W TDP, quad-channel DDR4-2667 memory support, 48 PCIe 3.0 lanes and a Kaby Lake PCH to support 20 PCIe 3.0 lanes.
