Intel 6th Generation Platform and CPUs Detailed

Here are the latest Details on Intel's Skylake and their 1151 Socket. How about an i7 with a base clock of 4GHz.

Read more on Intel's Skylake here.

One of these days I'll change my name to Mark Bench

"Including enhanced full range BCLK overclocking" looked interesting, would be nice to be able to overclock every chip with BCLK again not just the k series

Sounds like Skylake could be a decent step forward in performance unlike some of the poor efforts that intel has produced for the last few years.

seems pretty good tdp for 4ghz i think.
having said that i still dont really see the need for a 4ghz stock cpu think i would have been happier with 6 cores and 12 threads at 3ghz as a game plan.. that is provided dx 12 brings all it says it will to the table.
The multi core (above 4) intel chips are what i would really like to see being produced at a good rate with lower costs for end users.
I guess we may have to wait for dx 12 to hit and prove its worth before that happens.
and hopfully by then i3's will have 4 cores no ht.
i5's will be 4 cores with ht. or 6 cores no HT
and i7s will have 6 with ht and 8 cores with or without HT depending on the suffix/prefix

I really would like to have a solid multi core cpu to abuse to its full potential when dx 12 gets here.
Having said that i would not be complaining if one of these chips fell out of the sky and hit me in the head so i could use it lol. even if i was put in hospital for a couple of days because of it "provided it still worked"

it was pretty much decided that extra clock rates was not going to really boost performance that much back when every one had a 32 bit os.
since then the advances in extra cores and 64bit threads has come allong lots (although 64bit for some reason is still lagging terribly in terms of becoming main stream for gaming and apps etc)

so i really find it curious that they still sell an extra ghz here as a big thing. Im sure we have all oc'd our systems with similar clock rate boosts. and yes it does help and yest it does make things faster. but not really that much faster at all. and unless your benching then you wont even notice.
So the clock speeds im not that fussed about. I am happy to see the tdp at 95w with 4ghz though that is a good thing.
but like i said more cores at a slower speed would be my personall game plan if i was intel.
i7 2600, intel dz77sl-50k, 16gb 1600 DDR3, 900d case, gtx 780 @ 1306/1727 "xspc block", 1x 240 1x360 1x480 rads 2 bay res, http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/14829772

Looks like they may be decent chips but Intel really need to release a 6 core mainstream cpu other than on X99.
