The Skylake-S processor family will feature the next generation desktop processors with the latest IA and graphics microarchitecture built on a 14nm process node. Some key features of the platform include socket compatibility on the 100-series chipset motherboards which will feature the LGA 1151 socket and there will be various tiers of SKUs with TDPs optimized for various users. The first two categories include the 65W Quad Core / Dual Core and 35W Quad Core and Dual Core models while the last one that is pointed as the “Enthusiast” Quad Core will be part of the next iteration of Devil’s Canyon lineup featuring 95W TDP and faster core frequencies. There’s currently no details available regarding the specifications of these processors or their performance but it is expected to be a bigger boost than what we have been seeing from Intel chips in the recent years.
