All of the new desktop Skylake processors that were unveiled belong to the 35W and 65W segments, with the latter being the vanilla version of while the former is the slightly tuned-down variant designed for better power efficiency.
Although the desktop lineup has had it fair share of the limelight, the bulk of the new Skylake processors are geared for the mobile segment. From the groundbreaking Intel Xeon mobile processors (E3-1535M v5 and E3-1505M v5), to the new lo-power Core M-series chips with 4.5W TDP, the chipmaker has all of its bases covered as far as giving consumers a wide array of selection between power efficiency and raw performance.
Intel has also highlighted the new features that will be supported by the new Skylake processors. These include support for USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 connections, RealSense technology, and Intel Software Guard Extension (Intel SGX) among many others.
Users can expect to see computers running on one of the new Intel Skylake processors in the next coming months.
