Intel's 14nm Skylake processors to launch during Gamescon 2015
Intel was hinting at a couple of Skylake technologies during their keynote in Computex 2015 a few weeks back but there was still no sight of a particular launch date being hinted at. Well, Digitimes is reporting that Intel plans to unveil their brand new lineup of Skylake processors during Gamescon 2015 in Gemany. The trade show for games will be on from 6-9 August 2015.
The two high end i7-6700K and i5-6600K will be launched alongside the Z170 chipset during Gamescon 2015 and other desktop grade CPUs for the mainstream crowd will slowly saturate into the market by the end of August. With the new chipset and motherboard, intel will be implementing the new LG 1151 socket as well as introduce DDR4 memory support for motherboards.
Finally, for mobile offerings, Intel is apparently only ready to release new chipsets for laptops during the 4th quarter of 2015.
