Intel Announces The Overclockable Desktop CPUs- ‘Skylake’ Core i5-6600k And Core i7-9700k

Intel chose the venue of Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany to announce its two upcoming overclockable enthusiast-class CPUs. These are of its Skylake generation. The models Core i5-6600k and Core i7-9700k are manufactured following a brand new technology. Intel has already launched Z170 chipset in order to support the latest processors.

Intel Announced The Overclockable Desktop CPUs- ‘Skylake’ Core i5-6600k and Core i7-9700kThe Core i5-6600k would come with a base frequency of 3.5 GHz, which can be further pushed to 3.9 GHz. The Core i7-9700k is clocked at 4.0 GHz and can move-up to 4.2 GHz. These models have four cores and Intel HD 530 graphics integrated. However the Core i7 model supports Hyper-Threading scheme by Intel that lets each core to execute together two threads. The Core i5 has 6 MB and Core i7 has 8 MB of L2 cache.

Both the models support DDR3L or DDR4 RAM and use the latest LGA1151 socket. Computers incorporating any of these CPUs along with the Z170 motherboard shall have 16 lanes of PCI Express 3.0 connectivity initiating from the CUP directly. Both these models have 91W TDP ratings and would not have coolers in the box. Intel does not want any of the enthusiasts to utilize bundled coolers anyways.

The Skylake generation is the ‘tock’ in the tick-tock product cycle of Intel. This proves it is based on a new technology that uses verified process of manufacturing. In this case, it is the 14nm node that was introduced with Broadwell early last year.

 

 While these are the first of the Intel’s sixth general core family of Intel, variations are already under process to get them run on notebooks, ultra-thin tablets and small-form-factor devices.… Read the rest

Intel Skylake Processor Looks Like A Highly Capable Machine

Some new details regarding Skylake processors have leaked at the Intel Developer Forum, which is being held in Shenzhen, China. As reported by Hexus, the company utilized a dedicated conference session to display the graphical capabilities of this processor on a wide range of machines.

The primary motive behind this conference was to educate consumers and tech experts on the advantages of Skylake processors. These processors are the most capable unit when it comes to handling IRIS 6100 machines and graphics. 

Intel develops a highly capable processing unit Designed and developed keeping in mind a thermal design, these processors would be effective in handling high end graphics. With a thermal design power (TDP), the processors would consumers very less power.

Intel plans to release four versions of both i5 and i7 processing units in the year 2015, the report further states. The company will then make four SKUs which will be made available by 2016. Intel plans to offer the same support for both versions of the chipset.

The integrated processors for IRIS graphics were introduced alongside Broadwell processing units. The company has rolled out four different types of integrated chips with a common TDP of 28W.  However, Intel’s core i7 processing unit can bring down the thermal power to 23W making it of the most powerful and capable processing unit designed to handle IRIS graphics.

With the advanced features of this processing unit, it will be a boon for portable devices like laptops and mobile devices. Intel’s Skylake delivers more processing power and utilizes less battery.… Read the rest

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 2: Which Processor Would Have A Major Victory?

Certain rumours had hit the web regarding Samsung’s plans to use an Intel Atom processor in its upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. And now latest reports confirm that at least one version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will come packed with Intel Clover Trail+ mobile chip.
Getting an entry into Samsung’s device is a major victory for Intel who has been struggling to find its way into smartphones and tablets running Android. Intel has made its powerful chips more efficient and use less energy.
Earlier also Samsung and Intel jointly formed Tizen OS, the mobile operating system Samsung uses to reduce its dependence on Google’s Android operating system.
Currently, Intel powers various Samsung’s desktop, laptop and tablet computers that run Microsoft’s Windows operating system.
Why Samsung is opting for Intel as the processor for its tabs, when earlier it used its own Exynos processor stays unclear.
However, all eyes are set on June 20th in London, when Samsung is expected to unveil new Galaxy smartphones, ATIV Windows 8 laptops and tablets, and the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1… Read the rest
