Intel Releases Crystal Well Embedded CPUs which feature Skylake-R silicon, Iris Pro Graphics and a low TDP of 65W. What these new CPUs offer is the combination of Intel's newest Skylake architecture with the high-performance Iris Pro Graphics and eDRAM cache in a low power envelope. 

These new chips are designed to fit in all-in-one PCs or other small form factor PCs, providing a surprisingly large amount of CPU power in quite a small package.

Looking at the specifications of Intel's Skylake based Crystal lake CPUs we can see why these CPUs are an attractive option for integrates systems, offering the power of an Intel Quad-core Skylake CPU with some pretty high clock speeds for its power envelope. 

We can see that when compared to their Broadwell-based predecessors that this new set of CPUs run at higher CPU and GPU clock speeds, have more L2 Cache and can run with faster DDR4 memory, with DDR4 memory also offering some power savings when compared to DDR3. 

With Skylake having increased IPC over Broadwell these new Skylake based Crystal Lake embedded CPUs will offer a decent boost in performance when compared to their last generation counterparts.

One final improvement that has been made with these new CPUs it the ability to use Intel Speed Shift technology, which allows the CPU to rapidly change it's clock speeds to save power and rapidly start a new operation, making devices with a compatible OS feel much more responsive. 

Windows 10 is the only OS that works with intel Speed Shift at this time, but it does allow the CPU to increase it's clock speeds at a faster rate and with little delay. Intel states that Speed shift can make the difference between clock speed changes 50-100 milliseconds and 3 milliseconds. 

It is expected that we will see systems based on these new CPUs within the next few months.
