Product information: Approved - Elite Tier SkyLake MATX Bundle: Intel i7-6700K @ 4.50GHzSkylake has landed! Are you ready to go?
The new era of Intel Processors is now with us bringing DDR4 high bandwidth memory to the masses. Skylake has revolutionised the way that mainstream hardware is viewed and the lines between enterprise class hardware have been blurred.
Since we got our hands on very early Skylake micro-architecture processors, we have been tirelessly optimising the platform and pushing for the very best performance we can.
Skylake has many advantages that make it worth considering over previous generations for Gamers, Hardware Enthusiasts and Power Users. Some of these notable features include:
- Guaranteed CPU overclock of 4.50GHz
- 14nm transistor count manufacturing process
- Reduced power consumption
- Enhanced CPU and GPU performance
- High Frequency DDR4 Memory Support
- Low TDP output
- High PCI-Express Bandwidth
- M.2 PCI-Express AHCI/NVMe native support
Skylake is not just another mainstream release. The overclocking capability of these 'low thermal output' processors is immense as they run cool out of the box which gives enormous potential to enthusiasts.
There is a reason why Intel has touted Skylake as their most 'Significant Processor Release' for over a decade.
