Skylake processor SKUs leaked
Not official, but here is the pertinent graphic. Slated for an August launch. Time to rebuild with Win 10, to be released just about the same time. There's some unofficial benchmarks out there already if you want to pound on Google. Probably from engineering samples.

Opera 10.5 Not heading to RC?
