Intel Skylake-S CPUs to be launched at IDF 2015 in August


According to a new report on our sister site VR-Zone Chinese, Intel is likely to debut its upcoming Skylake-S desktop CPU lineup based on the new Skylake architecture at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2015 scheduled to be held on 15th August.

The SKUs that are likely to be announced in August include the K series unlocked chips and the normal locked chips. The most powerful of the K series unlocked SKU is expected to have a TDP of 95W while the other chips will have a TDP of 65W and 35W. It is believed that all of these new SKUs will come with the new Intel GT2 graphics that features 24 execution units. Both quad-core and dual-core parts are expected to be part of the new Skylake-S lineup.


Intel’s Skylake CPU lineup is expected to be the most impressive announcement from the company this year as it brings a major leap in performance and will be built on a 14nm manufacturing process. The Skylake family of processors will boast of a higher IPC and improved graphics performance along with higher power efficiency.

Along with the Skylake-S line, Intel is also expected to debut the Skylake-U lineup of processors targeted at the notebook segment with 28W and 15W TDP SKUs.
