One week after the official launch of Windows 10, Intel takes a step forward and presents the first two processors of the new generation Skylake : Core i7-6700K and i5-6600K .
The sixth generation Intel Core is a reality. Intel has introduced the first two Skylake processors during the Gamescom, the largest video game being held these days in Cologne, focused on high performance teams European fair.
The new generation Intel core Skylake keeps the process in 14 nanometer manufacturing of Broadwell processors, but incorporates major changes at the architectural level that result in greater efficiency.
The new Intel Core i7-6700K are quad-core with a working frequency of 4.00 GHz rising to 4.2 with Turbo Boost. They have 8 MB of L3 cache and HyperThreading , Intel technology that allows running multiple programs prepared parallel threads , resulting in an increase in application speed.
At the level of the GPU Intel Core i7-6700K have a integrated graphics Intel HD 530operating at a frequency of 350MHz in typical use and 1.2 GHz to Boost level.
The younger brother of the family of Skylake processors , the Intel Core i5-6600K is a quad-core but in this case runs at a clock speed of 3.5 GHz that rise to 3,9GHz with Turbo Boost.Has 6MB of L3 cache and this model is no support HyperThreading. On the other hand, it uses the same GPU as the previous model.
Intel Skylake-S and Skylake SKUs Configuration:

The two new processors made by Intel Skylake, the i7-6700K and i5-6600K , are available in Socket LGA 1151 and are compatible with DDR3L-1600 and DDR4-2133 memory .
The TDP of both processors is 91W and the same way they are compatible with the Intel Z170 Express chipset for overclocking.
The first two Intel processors Skylake generation will soon reach the shops, although a firm date is not known. The price of Intel Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K Intel processors will be around 350 and $ 243 respectively.
