Intel launched two enthusiast-focused CPUs in the Skylake family last week, with more products likely unveiled at the Intel Development Forum later this month. One of the product lines we’ll see at the conference will be Skylake-U family, a host of ultra low-power CPUs aimed at tablets, Ultrabooks, convertibles and fanless mini-PCs.
A leak of the product lineup suggests that we’ll see new offerings across Intel’s portfolio, including Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Pentium and Celeron. Each line will get no more than two SKUs, with the Core series offerings featuring Intel HD 520 integrated graphics, and the Pentium and Celeron lines coming with the Intel HD 510. The Intel 520 will be clocked at 350MHz base, with a boost ranging from 1000 to 1050MHz while the 510 will offer a base/boost clock of 300/900MHz.
According to FanlessTech, Intel is looking to launch two CPUs in the Core i7 series with vPro enabled, followed by one SKU in each of the Core 17, i5 and i3 lines:
Core i7-6600U (2.6-3.4 GHz / 2C4T / HD Graphics 520 / vPro / 15W TDP)
Core i5-6300U (2.4-3.0 GHz / 2C4T / HD Graphics 520 / vPro / 15W TDP)
Core i7-6500U (2.5-3.1 GHz / 2C4T / HD Graphics 520 / 15W TDP)
Core i5-6200U (2.3-2.8 GHz / 2C4T / HD Graphics 520 / 15W TDP)
Core i3-6100U (2.3 GHz / 2C4T / HD Graphics 520 / 15W TDP)
Pentium 4405U (2.1 GHz / 2C4T / HD Graphics 510 / 15W TDP)
Celeron 3955U (2.0 GHz / 2C2T / HD Graphics 510 / 15W TDP)
Celeron 3855U (1.6 GHz / 2C2T / HD Graphics 510 / 15W TDP)
Given the low-power requirements, Skylake-U CPUs will offer TDP as low as 15W, although a leaked slide suggests that we’ll see SKUs with a TDP of 28W featuring Intel Iris Graphics in 2016:
