Is Intel still using skylake?

How old is a 6th gen CPU?

Intel launched its 6th-generation Skylake processors back in August 2015. After a four-year run, the Santa Clara chipmaker is finally wheeling the 14nm chips into the retirement home.

Does i7 7700 have integrated graphics?

Graphically, the Core i7-7700 3.6 GHz Quad-Core LGA 1151 Processor uses integrated Intel HD Graphics 630.

Is the Intel Skylake Core i5 6500 overclocked?

However, with the recent release of overclocking BIOS updates for a range of motherboards, any of Intel’s recently released Skylake processors can be overclocked – which brings us to the Core i5 6500. In terms of Intel’s product line-up, it’s the one tier up from the base Core i5 6400, running at 3.2GHz compared to the 2.7GHz of the cheaper chip.

What are the specs of an Intel Core i7 6500u?

Here’s the specs sheet of the Intel Core i7-6500U: Processor Name Intel Core i7-6500U CPU Family 6th Generation Intel Core “Skylake” Number of Cores Dual-core / 2 computing threads per core CPU Clock Speed 2.5-3.1GHz Cache Size 4MB

Is it possible to overclock a Skylake CPU?

The news that any Skylake CPU is now overclockable (if you have a Z170 motherboard with the required BIOS update) is obviously a game-changer, but in our initial tests, we noted something strange. Synthetic benchmarks showed that overclocking our Core i5 6500 to 4.51GHz produced faster results than a 6600K running at an almost identical 4.5GHz.

What’s the difference between Intel Core i5 and i5 6500?

CPU clock-speed is defined by two factors: the base clock (aka BCLK, typically 100MHz) and the multiplier, which varies between processor. The Core i5 6500 has a 32x multiplier, giving 3.2GHz (100×32=3200). The K series Intel chips allow users to increase the multiplier on the motherboard BIOS, resulting in higher CPU clock-speeds.
