Intel Skylake Processors will get 100-series Chipset

Published by

Well, chronologically ity only makes sense of course. But future Intel Skylake Processors will get a 100-series Chipset. And yeah, a slide on that chipset just reared its head on the mighty internet. 

There will be four SKUs based on Skylake:

  • SLK-S, which will be socketed LGA
  • SLK-U ultra-low power BGA, for Ultrabooks
  • SLK-Y mainstream BGA for compact desktops and all-in-ones
  • SLK-H likely mainstream BGA for conventional notebooks. 

So the Skylake generation of CPUs and PCHs also will get four kinds of wireless network controllers depending on the SKU, "Snowfield Peak" Wi-Fi + Bluetooth, "Douglas Peak" WiGig + Bluetooth, "Pine Peak" WiGig, and XMM726x 4G LTE controllers; and "Jacksonville" GbE wired Ethernet controllers are mantioned in the roadmap. 

Thunderbolt will be upgraded towards a faster "Alpine Ridge" controller. Cheers to tpu for the spot on this one, roadmap via vr-zone.
