    Photos apparently showing the retail packaging for the Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K and i5-6600K processors haveappeared online. These processors are expected to be officially revealed at the Gamescom show in Cologne, which runs from Thursday to Sunday, later this week (6th to 9th of August). As with many modern technology launches we have seen adrip-drip of information in the run-up to the official launch/announcements including; leaks concerning specs and performance and related official information from supporting component (memory, motherboard) makers.


    Intel has adopted a snazzy ‘speeding-through-a-tunnel’ design
    for the new performance and gaming focussed processors.

    The photos show more details of the Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K than of the i5 chip due to the inclusion of a snapshot of the i7’s box side. According to the information presented, the Intel Core i7-6700K features 4 physical cores with support for 8 threads thanks Intel Hyperthreading. It has 8MB of L3 cache. The base clock frequency of this unlocked sixth generation i7 chip is 4GHz. For integrated graphics Intel has equipped this chip with HD Graphics 530.



    Intel’s Core i5-6600K box shots show that this chip has 4 physical cores. Without any Hyperthreading tech it simply supports 4 threads. Again it has Intel HD Graphics 530 integrated. The base clock speed of this chip is expected to be 3.5GHz, but like the i7, it is designed to be overclocking friendly. Both the new ‘K’ processors support Turbo Boost 2.0 technology and dual-channel DDR3L and DDR4 memory types – depending upon the motherboard.
