Intel Demos Skylake Processor Performance Live At IDF 2014
Skylake is reported to have significant departures in its architecture versus Broadwell, including the lack of Intel's FIVR technology (Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator) but also other feature integration as well.
There will of course be a number of variants of Skylake introduced for various devices and platforms but Skaugen no doubt demonstrated Skylake Y, which is the low power variant for tablets and 2-in-1 hybrids. Seen live here in action, Skylake is able to handle the 3DMark graphics performance benchmark with ease.
More from IDF as our show coverage continues, but for now it seems Skylake is looking alive and very well.
