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.

Just depressing...Saw that for Skylake and the refreshed one performances.

Lucky that I'm starting only to think about a new build and hardware components. Our low exchange rates have raised the computer parts prices around here and i hope by the time it will smoothly become to more affordable.

More details.

Leaked, not confirmed.

The S series is the top of the line LGA desktop models, using a standard 1151 pin socket.

H, U, and Y will be mobile and/or lower TDP. Ball Grid Array (BGA), not LGA.

So is Broadwell for the desktop being totally skipped over ?

I haven't kept up with Broadwell due to having my eye on Skylake, but.....I think Broadwell desktop is pretty much being skipped for desktop. I think there may be a couple of Broadwell SKUs that will be usable on a desktop, but they will have a short shelf life. Broadwell seems to be mostly mobile.

I read a thread somewhere on the topic and there was some dispute about what the term "desktop" necessarily meant.

Take a look here:

So I`m glad I got a Z87, it looks like a Z97 would be a total waste of money if you`re not gonna be able to purchase a Broadwell C socket 1150.

I mean does anyone use sata express yet, I`ve read that it`s still in the future, so what`s the benefit of it, i know it`s sata 3.2 but does it connect just the same as sata ?

Skylake will be LGA 1151, I guess they can`t make a 14 NM cpu to go in a 1150 socket or is it just another money making idea by Intel.

I don't know anyone using a SATA express drive and haven't dived deeply into it. Near as I can tell, it's in its infancy and doesn't offer much yet.

But I have no intention of buying another SSD for the next few years regardless, unless my existing one breaks down. The next one would be a 1 TB minimum at probably $150 or less; preferably under $100. Otherwise I'm not interested. It's going to take years to get to that price level anyway and maybe SATA express will be worth a look then. Until then, I'll use a spinner for data.

But I intend to build a Skylake by the end of the year. Looks like Win 10 will be the biggest decision about it and I'm not excited about what I read regarding licensing, upgrades, and updates. So, I may stick with 7 on the new PC and maybe eventually buy 10 in a year or two, to hell with the "free upgrade".
