Intel Skylake debuts on August 5

The final details regarding Intel’s Skylake CPU launch have become clear – Intel will debut the new CPU generation on August 5 this year during Gamescom 2015, which will be held in Cologne, Germany.

Intel will launch three new products – the high-end Z170 chipset and two Skylake processors – the unlocked Core i5-6600K and Core i7-6700K. At the same time the new socket LGA 1151 and motherboards that use it will be launched as well.

In three weeks time after August 5 Intel will present six more Skylake processors – the slower and locked Core i7-6700, Core i5-6600, Core i5-6400, Core i7-6700T, Core i5-6600T and Core i5-6400Tchips and five more chipsets – H170, B150, H110, Q170 and Q150. Unfortunately for many users who live in EMEA, these chipsets and processors will be on the market on September 27, while users in Asia will be able to get them in August.
