Intel Skylake-Y chips detailed

After launching the Core i7-6700K and the Core i5-6600K Skylake processors Intel now prepares cheaper processors of the same generation that will arrive in September. These chips will include both desktop and mobile models and while we have discussed the desktop SKUs already we haven’t said a word on the mobile Skylake processors due to a very trivial reason – lack of information.

Well, it turns out that the mobile Skylake chips will be divided in three lines – Skylake-H, Skylake-U and Skylake-Y. The first two lines will include high-end and low power models, respectively, while the last one will be used in ultrabooks and various other mobile devices. As of now Intel plans four Skylake-Y processors that will carry the 6Y30, 6Y54, 6Y57 and 6Y75 brand names.

All models will carry the Core M brand name but will belong to two lines – M3 and M5. The chips will have two cores with support for Hyper-Threading technology, 4 MB of L3 cache and Intel HD 515 graphics and will feature TDP levels of just 4.5 watts. The only differences are in the clock speeds and in the presence of Intel vPro technology. You can see all tech specs here:

In addition to this the Skylake-H processors support Intel VT-x and VT-d instructions as well as AES and Trusted Executuon technology. The chips also come with support for two SATA 3.0 ports, 10 PCI-E lanes and six USB ports including USB 3.0 and eMMC 5.0. Unlike desktop Skylake processors, though, these chips have support for DDR3L-1600 and LPDDR3-1866 memory only so you will not get to use them with DDR4.

There’s no information right now how much these processors will cost.
