Intel Skylake's Retail packaging has been pictured, showing an all new box design from Intel and that Intel's K-series CPUs will not come with stock Intel CPU coolers. 

Below we can see the front retail packaging of Intel's i7 6700K and i5 6600K, which are a big change from Intel's traditional plain blue packaging.

This packaging also confirms a lof of specifications of Intel's new CPUs, showing that the i7 6700K has a clock speed of 4.0GHz, Intel 530 series graphics and support for both DDR4 and DDR3 memory. 

Wit the graphics chip being called the 530 series, it may be an indication that this chip will not be using Intel's highly impressive 6200 series graphics which were use in Broadwell, though this remains unconfirmed.

The most noteworthy piece of information that has been confirmed from these pictures is that K-series Skylake CPUs will not the shipped with a Stock Intel CPU cooler, which will require users to purchase an aftermarket solution. 

This decreases the size of the package dramatically and makes the CPU cheaper to produce and ship, though it is unknown if this saving will be passed to consumers.

Maybe they will drop the price of the unlocked i7 to separate it a bit more from the 5820k?Quote

5820K costs 400€ , while the 4790K sits around 300-350€

Considering the higher cost of the X99 platform, 6700K won't be cheaper than its predecessor since there's still a good gap between the two platformsQuote
