Intel plans to release mobile Skylake in October

Those of you who need a new notebook, but don’t need it right away, may consider waiting for a few more months – we have learned that Intel plans to release the first mobile Skylake processors in October of this year.

Intel will launch 18 new mobile Skylake processors this fall with the goal to boost notebook demand but we do not know how this will go since most notebook manufacturers have inventory issues, which means they have too many notebooks with older Intel processors inside. The reason for this phenomenon is simple – sales of new notebooks are struggling in Europe and the demand for new notebooks in China is lower than initially expected. Even then notebook makers are ready to mass produce Skylake-based notebooks so despite the aforementioned inventory issues you will be able to find Skylake notebooks, including Skylake-based Chromebooks, on the market this fall. Celeron-based notebooks, however, will appear only in Q1 2016.

Skylake will be launched on August 5 this year at Gamescom 2015 in Germany but Intel will release desktop models first.
