Intel Core i7-6700K ‘Skylake-S’ already tested by Intel’s partners - Intel Corp.’s “Skylake-S” central processing units for desktops remain months clear of their launch, though the company’s partners in China happen to be testing one more chips inside their labs. A web-site has published a CPU-Z screenshot, which proves specifications of Intel’s flagship “Skylake-S” model, the Core i7-6700K.

Intel is predicted to start volume shipments of that dual-core Core M and Core i-series “Skylake” microprocessors for high-performance tablets, 2-in-1 hybrid PCs and notebooks in August, based on Asustek Computer. Desktop-class processors with four cores, advanced graphics engines and big caches are going to be shipped after mobile chips and therefore are currently supposed to hit the market in late-September or early-October.

Chinese partners of Intel seem to be testing engineering degrees of the company’s Core i7-6700K microprocessor, meaning the chipmaker has now started to ship high-frequency “Skylake-S” central processing units to allies. Early types of “Skylake” CPUs operated at 2GHz – 2.3GHz clock-rates, which rose questions on the ability of such microprocessors to operate at high frequencies. The screenshot, allegedly published by HKEPC web-site, proves which the flagship “Skylake-S” will feature 4.0GHz default clock-rate. At the moment the photo was taken, the chip overclocked itself to 4137.68MHz.

Intel Core i7-6700K microprocessor features four cores with Hyper-Threading, 4.0GHz frequency, 4.20GHz maximum Turbo Boost clock-rate, 8MB last-level cache, a dual-channel DDR3/DDR4 memory controller with 1600MHz or 2133MHz support, 95W TDP, Intel HD Graphics 6000-series integrated graphics core and also LGA1151 packaging.

All initial Intel Core i5 and Core i7 “Skylake-S” processors for desktops integrate four x86 cores with or without Hyper-Threading technology, a whole new integrated graphics processor with improved multimedia capabilities, a dual-channel DDR4/DDR3L memory controller and 6MB or 8MB of last level cache (LLC). The chips comes in LGA1151 form-factor and will likely be compatible with motherboards powered from the Intel 100-series chipsets, including Z170, Z150, Q170, Q150, B150 and H110.
