Intel Skylake Leaked Specifications and Performance

 

Today we have some Intel Skylake specifications and performance to show you, but take this with you daily dose of salt as these remain unconfirmed. 

To start off Intel's Skylake 6700K is a CPU which is very similar to Intel's Current 4790K, with 4 cores, hyperthreading, a base frequency of 4.0GHz, both can overclock and both support dual channel memory. This is where the similarities end, the 6700K will be using Intel's newer Skylake architecture, used DDR4 memory and is based in Intel's 14nm manufacturing process, whereas the Intel 4790K is using the Intel Haswell architecture, DDR3 Memory and Intel's 22nm process.

According to these specifications Intel's Skylake will also have an larger TDP than it's predecessor, though this is likely due to Intel's increased focus on integrated graphics performance, so typical power usage my in fact be lower than Haswell, depending on you usage of it's iGPU.

When it comes the the Cinebench scores which were provided by cpu-monkey, Skylake will have a very minimal increase in single threaded performance when compared to Haswell, though multithreaded performance does see a slightly more significant boost. 

These gains in performance are similar to what we have seen moving from generation to generation with Intel in recent years, though with these results being early leaks they are likely to be false. Second to that, we do not know where Intel has focused on when improving the performance of Skylake, so other benchmarks may have a more substantial performance increase.

Passmark and Geekbench show similar results to that of the Cinebench results above, with relatively minor performance change between Haswell and Skylake. 

Right now Intel's Skylake CPUs are expected in Q3 of 2015, with Broadwell supposedly coming within the next few months. Intel's Skylake will require a new CPU socket and Broadwell should work on all of Intel current Z97 motherboards.

Today we have some Intel Skylake specifications and performance numbers, showing some rather minimal performance...

No on-board GPU, interesting...

I wonder if the i5 variant will have a on-board GPUQuote

Based on those benchmarks it's a waste of time for Haswell owners.

Bring on Cannonlake Quote

The graphs say that going from the 4790K to the 6770K will give you as much of a performance boost as someone with a handfan on a low setting pointing it at a sail ship trying to get it to move Quote

i still do not understand but i will wait and see i replacing my i7 4770 cpu with a skylike cpuQuote
