First specs of Core i3 and Pentium Skylake processors

The Intel Core i5-6600K and Core i7-6700K Skylake have been with us for nearly a month and this period is a lot of time in the IT world. This means that soon we will get cheaper and slower Skylake processors such as Pentium and Core i3 chips but what will they come with?

It turns out that the Core i3 and Pentium Skylake chips will not bring dramatic changes when compared to older processors with the same brand name. The Core i3 processors on the Skylake architecture will carry two computational cores with support for Hyper-Threading technology and the chips will also support AES, AVX, AVX2, VT-x, VT-d, vPro and TXT instructions. The Core i3 Skylake processors will also have 4 MB of L3 cache and Intel HD 530 graphics at 350 MHz (1000 MHz Turbo).

The Pentium processors on the Skylake architecture will also have two processing cores but they will not support Hyper-Threading technology. These chips will also lack support for AES, AVX and AVX2 instructions and will have less L3 cache that will sit at 3 MB. They will have Intel HD 510 graphics at 350 MHz (1050 MHz Turbo).

Both CPU lines will have TDP of 65 watts and will have integrated DDR3L-1600/DDR4-2133 memory controllers. The chips will appear at the end of September 2015.
