The 6th Generation of Intel: Skylake is Here

The 6th Generation of Intel: Skylake is Here

The new Skylake generation of CPUs uses Intel’s latest, highly refined 14 nm manufacturing process. With the smallest chip architecture to date and an updated memory controller that supports DDR4 RAM, the processors achieve blazing memory speeds up to 2133 MHz, all while still supporting older DDR3L-1600 RAM.

Intel Technology Inside

Another goal of the new design was to optimize the balance between CPU-intensive tasks and integrated graphics. New Speed Shift tech allows you to quickly switch between energy-efficient and high performance modes to meet your actual processing needs. If a core is not in use, it automatically turns off, reducing system temperature and power usage, as well as extending the life of the hardware.

Intel Skylake

Intel has released 4 desktop models so far, with more to come. The Intel Core i7-6700 has 4 cores running at 3.4 GHz, capable of reaching 4.0 GHz with TurboBoost 2.  With integrated Intel HD 530 Graphics, it can support screen resolutions up to 4K and run 3 monitors simultaneously. The cheaper i5-6600 runs at 3.3 GHz, which can be boosted to 3.9 GHz.

True PC enthusiasts may want to wait for the unlocked K-Series, coming to Alza soon. These leading chips can reach even higher frequencies, and are intended for overclocking and truly exceptional performance. 

Will you have to get a new motherboard?

Yes. All Skylake CPUs are made for the new LGA 1151 Socket. For maximum results we recommend the Intel Z170 chipset

The new chipset offers great potential, with the capability to support up to ten USB 3.0/3.1 ports, six SATA ports at 6 Gb/s, and ultra-fast PCI Express SSDs

GIGABYTE Z170X-Gaming G1

We offer a wide range of supported motherboards, from high-end performance models to more modest ones. Have a look at our mid-range H170 and more functional B150 offerings, and start dreaming about your new bleeding-edge PC build.
