Intel to flood CPU market with Skylake chips this fall

Intel’s plans for the year have been clear for quite some time now – in a few weeks time the US company will finally release the first desktop Broadwell processors, while a few months later we will all get the new Skylake generation, which requires the new LGA 1151 socket. Unfortunately for all hardware fans around the world the desktop Broadwell generation will consist of two models only – the Core i5-5675C and the Core i7-5775C – and despite the finer 14 nm production process the two chips will be more expensive than the current high-end Haswell processors.

The situation will improve with the arrival of Skylake, though – according to the Chinese web site Benchlife.info Intel will release a bunch of Skylake processors in fall 2015 and winter 2016. This time the company will employ a different strategy – the arrival of mobile Skylake processors will come after desktop Skylake processors are released to market. The mobile Skylake chips will belong to the Skylake-U, Skylake-Y and Skylake-H chip lines, while the desktop processors will belong to the Skylake-S line. The first Skylake-H processors will appear in September 2015, while the Skylake-U and Skylake-Y lines will appear in September 2015 and will be expanded in January 2016. Then in 2016 Intel will release its first 10 nm processors, codenamed Cannonlake.

The Skylake-S line will be first represented by Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K but a bit later Intel will also release a bunch of more affordable processors.
