Intel introduces embedded Skylake lineup
After introducing a large number of desktop and notebook Skylake processors Intel has announced the first Skylake SKUs that are designed for industrial use. The new CPU line includes dual-core and quad-core models that are named Pentium G4400TE, Core i3-6100TE, Core i5-6500TE and Core i7-6700TE. The new chips are closely related to the Pentium G4400T, Core i3-6100T, i5-6500T and i7-6700T consumer processors but have the letter “E” added, which denotes that the chips are for embedded solutions. In addition they differ in the CPU and integrated GPU clock rates.
Here’s what you will get by purchasing one of the new chips. The differences are tiny but they are here – the new Skylake TE chips feature slightly lower clock speeds compared to their desktop equivalents with all other specs being the same except for the Core i3-6100TE, which gets an additional 1 MB of L3 cache.
When compared to their Haswell equivalents, though, the new Skylake TE processors are clearly faster or have more features to benefit from. In addition the new chips can work with the hot new DDR4-2133 memory, so this is another plus.
No word on pricing as of now.
