Intel quietly creates Skylake chips with new iGPU

The list of Intel Skylake processors has recently grown with three new models – the Core i7-6785R, the Core i5-6685R and the Core i5-6585R. There’s little information on these very interesting processors but we do know that they are based on Intel’s latest Skylake architecture and that they feature a very powerful integrated GPU instead of the well-known Intel HD 530 GPU that can be seen in regular Skylake processors.

Unfortunately there’s no information on the new integrated GPU but there are some serious reasons to think that the mysterious chip is the Intel Iris Pro 580 iGPU. It comes with 128 MB of eDRAM memory and this is one of the secrets why the GPU is so fast. As to the processors, the Core i7-6785R comes with four cores at 3.3 GHz, support for Hyper-Threading technology, 6 MB of L3 cache and a price tag of USD 370. The Core i5-6685R has four cores at 3.2 GHz but lacks support for Hyper-Threading technology and packs 4 MB of L3 cache for a price tag of USD 288. Finally the Core i5-6585R packs four cores at 2.8 GHz that do not support Hyper-Threading, 4 MB of L3 cache and a price tag of USD 255.

The new chips should be in stores soon.
