First Intel Skylake desktop CPU benchmarks arrive


The first benchmarks of the 6th Generation Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K have been leaked by Turkish website PC FRM.

The Intel Core i7-6700K is expected to be the flagship Skylake desktop processor and will succeed the Intel Core i7-4770K and Core i7-4790K CPUs currently available. It is a quad-core CPU with a total of eight threads thanks to HyperThreading support. The chip has a base clock speed of 4.0 GHz with a 4.2 GHz Turbo Boost frequency. It includes 8MB of L3 cache and offers support for DDR4 and DDR3 memory with the integrated memory controller.

As for the benchmarks themselves, as you can see from the charts below, the i7-6700K isn’t a huge upgrade over the previous generation chips in any of the benchmarks. So if you were expecting to see major performance gains with Skylake, you are likely to be slightly disappointed by these benchmarks.

Intel is expected to announce the launch of both Skylake-S desktop as well as Skylake-U mobile processors at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) event in August this year.
