Intel's Skylake CPUs have had performance benchmarks leaked and a me Intel Engineering sample has been pictured. The leaks say that the Intel Skylake i7-6700K will have approximately a 15% advantage over Intel's current Haswell i7-4790K.

We also have specification on the whole i5 and i7 Intel Skylake lineup, which will support both DDR4 and DDR3 memory types. Intel i3 series processors are expected to be released at a later date.

Curiously Intel has changed their naming scheme for their Skylake CPUs, naming the unlocked i5 and i7 models the i5 6600K and the i7 6700K, instead of the i5 6670K and the 6770K like expected. Another oddity is that AMD has released APUs with similar names over the past few years with Richland, with models called the A8-6600, A10-6700 and the A10-6800K, which could confuse people who are not acquainted with these CPUs.

For more information on the Intel Skylake 1151 socket/ socket Z170 in our article on the subject here

Below are some early benchmarks from PCFRM, which while we cannot confirm that they are legitimate give us a picture of what we have came to expect from Intel, after 10-15% gains year-on-year with Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge and Haswell. Please bear in mind that the Intel 5820K Quad core is clocked at 3.3GHz, while the 4790K and 6700K are both clocked at 4.0GHz

When Skylake comes it will bring with it a CPU which supports both older and newer memory standard, DDR4 and DDR3, and should also dramatically decrease the power consumption of the CPUs, both via architectural improvements and by using Intel's newest 14nm manufacturing process.

CineBench R15 doesn't give those results. So those graphs at least are bull.

Well I knew it would happen... Three years ago I got a big PPI pay out and built a monster rig. Intel 3930K based system with for the time all the high end kit. A score of around 10 something or other is what my CPU gets when not overclocked. It's happened a "regular" i7 is as powerful as my Sandy-e. Well the old girl will have to serve a few more years. It was reassuring that she outpaced what I thought of as the "regular" Intel stuff. Looks like with this iteration or maybe the next the old girl will start to fall behind. Well there goes the bragging rights.Quote

Yeah I was just thinking that. Might have been a mistake in posting.

If this isn't BS then I'm once again terribly disappointed by Intel. Another 5-10% hike, total yawn.

That makes it 15-30% faster than Sandy which was released years ago now and usually you can clock a Sandy far higher to completely offset the gain these newer (yet harder to clock) CPUs offer.

When I bought my 3970x I was quite worried about the 5820k. I thought about waiting but with the way Intel's gains have been going I kinda knew I would be safe with the 3970x. All said and done I managed to get it to 4.7ghz every day stable and as much as the boys on OCUK tried they couldn't topple my results with a 5820k.

Plus the 5820k does not have the lanes I really needed for my rig.

Funny really but nothing new. Intel's gains over the past few years have been utter crap.

I just hope that AMD's Zen offers something refreshing and completely new. All Intel seem to be doing is shrinking dies for the laptop/tablet sector and completely ignoring PC users. I can understand it of course, the PC market is not big enough to keep them in business any more, but it's just all so effing lame.

If Zen works out I will be very happy, and it may just push Intel into developing a new technology, not just shrinking down what they have now.

I'm in the same camp as you, brother. I run the 3970x and I see absolutely chuff all worth paying the premium of X99 for. I could "upgrade" to a 5930k at around £900? or so? and I would gain hardly anything given the 5930k could never reach the clock speeds I run my 3970x at. Maybe 5-10% and for what? that £900 or so.

Any one who bought Sandy has no reason to upgrade at all unless they want to go from an I3 to an I5 or an I5 to an I7. It's actually crazy just how utterly crap Intel's gains have been and how pointless all of these new CPUs are.

I guess that's what happens when you have no competition at the top though, and a display of what happens when one company can't compete.

It's all so bloody boring and predictable

Tell you what though. If AMD release the 16 core Zen for a good price I will possibly consider swapping out my rig. Until then I have absolutely no reason to upgrade whatsoever. That's kinda depressing in a way as I love new hardware but sadly very true.

so how long is it expected to be before these are released? is it heading into i should wait territory or not worry about it and build a rig now?Quote

I wonder what the price would be like?Quote
