Intel Skylake i3 and Pentium CPUs rumoured to launch in September

 

In just a week, Intel will introduce their next generation of CPUs, codenamed Skylake, at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. The Skylake CPUs will run on Socket LGA 1151 and will a Tick in Intel’s Tick-Tock release cycle. The unlocked SKU’s (i5 6600k and i7 6700k) will reportedly be the first CPU’s to hit the shelves, alongside the Z170 chipset. The rest of the i5 and i7 chips will release in the week of the 30th of August. These chips will be the i5 6400(T), i5 6500(T), i5 6600(T) and the i7 6700(T), the ‘T’ standing for the low-power CPUs. According to CPU-World, these chips will launch September 1st.

Of course there are still the i3 and Pentium CPUs that will launch, but for those of you who are interested in Skylake i3’s or Pentium’s will have to wait a bit longer, as they will not be available for purchase until the end of September.

According to WCCFtech, that Skylake non-K (or non-unlocked) CPUs will feature base overclocking support with an adjustable BCLK, overclockable memory and iGPU overclocking. This will include the i3 CPUs, which is a great feature should it be true. With an adjustable BCLK, the i3 might finally be the bang-for-your-buck (gaming) CPU again, which is a great thing.

Cpu-z states i7 6400t, where your specs state that is supposed to be an i5 model

Cannot wait for this though, it will be pretty cool to have moderately overclockable i3'sQuote
