Intel Kaby Lake to Replace Skylake next year

 

It looks like Intel is going to replace Skylake with "Kaby Lake" CPUs next year. It will use the same Intel 14nm manufacturing process and have a max TDP of 91W.

Right now it is unknown if the CPU will contain an all new architecture from Intel, but it will include a 256MB cache on package, which will help to speed up graphical workloads tremendously, as fast memory is essential for GPU workloads. These chips will be aimed at both the mobile and desktop markets and will be releasing at some point in 2016.

Kaby Lake will support Intel's LGA 1151 platform and will be compatible with Intel's Skylake's infrastructure using Intel's 100-series chipsets. 

Right now it is unknown what this means for Intel's Cannonlake CPU architecture or Intel's 10nm process node, but if Intel plans on introducing new 14nm CPUs next year we expect Intel to delay or postpone their 10nm process. 

 

You can join the discussion on Intel's Kaby lake CPUs on the OC3D Forums.

Eh okay, I did not see that coming! Skylake is very shortlived then. I would like to know more about the K part...Quote

Looks interesting but still no 6 core chips on the mainstream platform is disappointing to put it politely.

Maybe if AMD's Zen CPU's are any good then we might see Intel pull out a CPU for the mainstream market that, won't be just the usual ~8% performance improvement each year or two.Quote

Kaby Lake looks more like a small, incremental refinement of Skylake rather than anything spectacular. Still, I want to know more ha ha!

Considering that Kaby Lake-K is a 1-chip with a PCH chip on the motherboard, I suspect that it won't work with upcoming Skylake boards?Quote

I doubt it, the last time we could reuse a motherboard was from sandy to ivy bridge, and even then some would have issues. Intel just loves to release revised sockets. Upside is more new stuff gets sold a lot more so i guess its good for the industry.Quote

At least it's not another socket change which is something I guess, I would have thought Skylake would have lasted longer than that but hey ho see what happens next year.

I'm still not moving from Haswell any time soon, mostly because the other half would probably kill me
