    Intel Skylake CPUs due between August 15 and January 16

    The company starts with desktop 'S' parts and ends with low-power 'U' and 'Y' SKUs.

    Dear sir or madam -

    The benchmarks you keep alluding to have been shown to not even be benchmarks, but supposition based on pre-existing hardware performance. They aren't real. Please quit posting them as real.

    Thank you.

    A source debunking those benchmarks would be greatly appreciated. I was not aware they were performance estimates as you claim.

    From the webpage - no charge for the bad Google translate - note the bold.

    Intel Skylake 1151 with the name of the new processor socket ( 6700 Core i7 and Core i5 6600) we announced earlier will come in June. So i7 Processor 6700 the predecessor of the 4790 i7 performance when compared with how much to reveal farku? Skylake movement curve associated with the following processors possible , we have prepared performance graphics. Intel i7 6700 benchmark test that takes place in this comparison were prepared on the basis of performances given by Intel's processors in the previous year.
    They admit they are basing their information off of prior information, and how the Skylake *should* perform based on released specs. You'll also note that, in the comments, user CeeGee posted a direct link to where the 3DMark scores were 'cribbed' from.

    They may be a good educated guess - they are not benchmarks.

    Edit to add -

    also, of more importance as to what is there is what isn't there. No motherboard. No memory. No graphics. No PSU. No mass storage of any kind. You can't do benchmarks without all of those.

    Cheers on the correction. Appreciate the efforts of everyone here at Hexus, and appreciate the writers taking (sometimes churlish) input from the readers.

    Does anyone (besides Intel) know if the Skylake-S rollout includes single-socket "E3" Xeons?

    Hope the Core i7-6700K is a sequel to Devil's Canyon goodness in the Core i7-4790K with all the virtualization stuff enabled.

    There's already a number of E3 chips on the market. (Here, for example) The newly announced line is the E7 v3, and the OEM's are taking preorders on servers and workstations, but I've not seen any for direct sale, nor have I seen the cpu's being offered for individual sale. Figure probably sometime either in early July or late September (early or late Q3).

    A little more digging has shown the Skylake E3 Xeons are expected around the October-November time frame.

    I know there are E3 Xeons "out there". I have one (see my sig )... My question was specifically for Skylake E3 Xeons.

    Both the E5 and E7 series are completely different beasts, though. They are for dual and quad socket 2011-3 systems, respectively (E5-16xx is for single socket 2011-3 systems, including X99-based systems). The E3 series on the other hand is for single socket 1150 systems and is basically identical to your Core i series CPUs. Many, if not most, Core i series motherboards will accept a matching E3 Xeon as a drop-in, though without the ECC memory support, which is one of the things I'm after.

    But you probably know all this already...

    Only if paired with the right chipset. Not for technical reasons, mind you, but to further Intel's profits. If you drop an E3 Xeon into e.g. a Z97-based motherboard there's no support for ECC. Strangely enough, if you put an E5 Xeon into an X99-based motherboard, chances are very good that ECC will be supported.
