Intel launches new Skylake chip

The US chip maker Intel has quietly released a new mobile processor, based on the Skylake architecture. The chip is known as Core i7-6660U and as you can see it belongs to the company’s ultra low power consumption Skylake-U CPU line.

The new Core i7-6660U processor has arrived to replace the Core i7-6650U processor that has been around since September 2015. The new processor packs two Skylake cores that run at 2.4 GHz, which is 200 MHz faster than the older Core i7-6650U processor. The chip also has Hyper-Threading technology, which allows it to execute four threads at once, 4 MB of L3 cache and likely Iris 540 graphics, although this has to be confirmed. The TDP level stays the same at 15W.

The new chip is priced at USD 415, which is the same price asked for the Core i7-6650U.
