    Intel Skylake-S processors detailed in Chinese 'leak'

    These Socket 1151 LGA processors are expected to become official at IDF 2015 in August.

    DDR4 mandates a socket change rather than any of the tick/tock marketing spiel I would have thought?

    95W for the K processors? That's 11w higher than my Haswell processor... better bring a significant performance boost

    I think it's unavoidable with DDR4 adoption.

    And that's the TDP, actual power consumption could be different.

    11W is neither here nor there for desktop use - it's either just a categorisation thing or these numbers aren't too exact, as it's unlikely a 4C/4T with base 3.5ghz is going to have the same TDP as the 4C/8T base 4.0ghz chip.

    Maybe they've just said that overclockers would like more robust sockets/thermal handling for their chips.

    Oh well, at least I'll still be able to use my 'old' 2400Mhz DDR3 in the new socket motherboards if I decide to upgrade.

    I suspect that you're right, it's only 95W because it's a K, if i5-6600 non-K loses only 200MHz - I doubt that's worth 30W.

    95W also means "something more than 65W but less than 95W".
    95W is for market segmentation and ensures the MB's are made with enough headroom for future speed bumps. More of the TDP is being used for GPU not CPU increases. Some CPU instructions may operate on wider data (AVX2 or whatever) and small increase of mem bandwidth but not much else. CPU performance for 1 or 2 threads has been very slow to improve.

    The stars may align for a skylake based system for my Virtual Reality needs. Now all I need is a release date for CV1. Fingers crossed for news at E3
