Intel says Skylake will arrive in H2 2015

Intel has released new company documents that state what the company will be doing this year. The news touches processor plans for the most part but includes interesting information that will appeal most to hardware enthusiasts.

We’ll start with the eagerly expected Skylake CPU generation – according to Intel the first desktop Skylake chips will be on the market in H2 2015 and more precisely sometime between August and October of this year. The new processors will use the upcoming LGA 1151 socket, which means a motherboard change is mandatory. The first mobile Skylake processors will appear sometime around Christmas time so do not expect them at the end of summer 2015. All new Skylake processors will use Intel’s latest 14 nm production process and will support DDR3 and DDR4 SDRAM but not at the same time.

Intel also said that the work on the upcoming 10 nm production process had already started but the first chips on this new and very advanced technology will not appear soon. In addition the company does not plan to invest too much time and effort in smartphone processors and other mobile technologies so do not expect major changes there.
