DigiTimes has some details about Intel's future flagship products for the desktop platform. The site claims both the Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X processors will make a debut in the third quarter of 2017, with Gamescom 2017 in August being the most likely launch date. The site says the new models will have a price range between NT$15,000-57,000 (US$468-1,780).

The Skylake-X and Kaby lake-X processors will share the same new platform, they will require a new motherboard with LGA2066 socket and will support DDR4 memory. The launch will be accompanied with the new Intel X299 chipset.

If earlier rumors are correct, Kaby Lake-X will be the lower-end version, limited to quad-core models with a TDP of up to 112W. Skylake-X on the other hand will have TDP range of up to 140W, and models with six, eight and ten cores.

There are some other differences too, Kaby Lake-X is reportedly limited to dual-channel DDR4, while Skylake-X has a quad-channel controller. Furthermore, Kaby Lake-X has up to 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes, whereas Skylake-X has up to 44 lanes.
