    Not sure Intel would spell it "Broadwel", but then grammar skills are disastrous these days...

    EDIT: Can now see the missing 'L' is on the next line. Still looks a bit unprofessional to me.

    Feature has an s below it, just like Broadwel has another l right below it. Kinda odd but a possible mistake? Wouldn't be surprising someone goofed something that serious, when you look at what governments do on a daily basis. Even smart people do have a mistake now and again.

    The L is on the second line like the S of features... Poor presentation though to have such a silly mistake (assuming genuine).

    I guess with Skylake a HTPC wont require dedicated video for 4k 60p playback.

    Why is it all the 'longer battery life' claims are related to video playback? They don't mention which codec so if it's hardware vs software then it's really not that impressive.

    I would guess it's h264, it is the codec of choice these days, although it could now include h265, I'm sure I read their drivers supported it now.

    To be fair these don't look like much of an upgrade for 'enthusiast' desktop users, most of the hardcore gamers will use a dedicated gpu so any gains there won't matter much. Most office workers will be fine with systems from a few years back lol but it may be useful for someone who wants a new htpc.

    All the little 10%s eventually add up, but it's also about all the other stuff that comes with the platform like USB3-C, decent I/O bandwitdh, DDR4 etc.

    true but if you compare this gen to previous gen like the slides are the benefit of upgrading is limited. DDR4 has yet to be proven to improve things over ddr3 in most cases, yes it's better but is it worth a whole new pc not in my view, same with usb-3c, it's handy but I've not really seen much which uses it yet so worse case scenario I'm sure you could get a pci-e card.

    If an enthusiast was after decent i/o bandwidth they'd have likely gone socket 2011-3 already, which would have inturn added ddr-4

    Skylake, assuming it has a decent clock speed, is probably the first cpu where say the '2500K' users might feel it worthwhile to upgrade (outside of socket 2011) when you take into account the overclock ability of the cpu's etc

    I don't think I'm going to believe anything I read until some reputable independent sources publish some benchmarks.

    True, we know how reliable leaks can be. And official slides. Let alone leaked 'official' slides.

    Not if your happy with 4 to 14 fps not even nvidia's 980ti gets good frame rates all the time (35+) minimum.

    Hardware decoder implementation isn't related to graphics performance - it's a separate dedicated block that happens to be close to the GPU, so we won't know until it's tested.
