Intel will release Skylake at Gamescom 2015

Unofficial information on the Internet right now claims Intel will launch its upcoming Skylake processors at Gamescom 2015, which will be held in Cologne, Germany between August 5 and August 9 this year.

The US chip company will launch just two models at the event with the rest coming out shortly. Gamers will be treated with two new chips – the unlocked Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K chips. Both processors will come in the new LGA 1151 package and will run in Intel 100-series chipset motherboards that have started showing on the market. In addition if you wish to overclock your Skylake chip you will have to buy an Intel Z170-based motherboard. Skylake will support both DDR3 and DDR4 so this will ease your upgrade if you have DDR3 memory right now.

The rest of the new Skylake processors will appear in late August and in early September. The launches will include the more budget-oriented H170 and B150 chipsets as well as various slower Core i7 and Core i5 processors. The first Core i3 and Pentium processors on the Skylake architecture are expected by the end of 2015 which is also true for the mobile Skylake chips.
