Leaked Intel roadmap reveals Skylake-X CPUs 2017 release


In a leaked Intel roadmap the company has listed Skylake-X series CPUs for a Q2 2017 release, with Kaby Lake coming in Q4 2016. 

The roadmap also shows that Kaby Lake will be arriving on mobile platforms first, coming first to Intel's low power U-series and Y-series of CPUs. The release of Kaby Lake on desktop roughly coincides with the release date MSI has given for their Intel 200-series motherboards. 

On the enthusiast end it looks like Intel will be replacing the E with an X for the Skylake-X series of CPUs, though apart from this no clear information is given. At this time we do not know if Intel plans on releasing another 10-core CPU or if they plan on increasing the core count again to 12 or 14. We think it is likely that Intel will release another 10-core CPU but simply release Skylake-X with higher stock clocks.

Right now we have no confirmed information on Intel's Skylake-X platform, though we think it is likely that it will require a new CPU socket and will likely overclock better than Broadwell-E or Haswell-E, at least judging by its existing desktop counterparts.

On this roadmap we can also see listing for Kaby Lake-X, which comes with the same release timeframe as Skylake-X, hinting that Intel may decide to skip Skylake-X and go straight to Kaby lake, though right now information is unclear.

Kaby X and Skylake X at the same time is interesting. Could they be optimized for different tasks? One socket for servers or a newer small form factor and one for regular? Who knows.

I'm Keen for Kaby and a 7700K (I have a K fetish) End of this year early next will be a decent time to upgrade Ivy.Quote

I was planning on replacing my trusty old SB-E with BW-E at the end of this year... maybe waiting another 6 month doesn't hurt that much. SB-E is still going strong. Quote
