Nonetheless, Intel claims that the Skylake CPUs are the most significant due to its wireless capabilities and power-efficiency features.

Not only that, but the new Skylake processors will now support Thunderbolt 3, Iris Pro and will be able to run up to 4 external monitors with HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2. However, the most impressive part of the Skylake chips is that even the mobile versions will be able to handle up to three 4K UHD external monitors. Furthermore, Intel plans to release its first ever mobile CPUs that are unlocked for overclocking which would be a huge deal for some gamers and geeks.

The one we’ve got, however, is the Intel Core i7-6500U CPU packed inside an engineering sample and the CPU has slightly improved clock speeds compared to its predecessor Intel Core i7-5500U as expected, but the most notable changes will be way under the hood, so stay tuned to find out more about this exciting chip as we will provide the usual benchmark tests and a full review of the silicon.398464-skylake-microarchitecture
