Intel Core i7-6700K and i5-6600K will be no longer available

Intel launches the end of the K-processors of the Skylake generation.

The two overclocking models of the Skylake CPUs were officially introduced in the third quarter of 2015, about two years later Intel already announces the demise of the processors. With the Core i7-7700K and the Core i5-7600K of the Kaby-Lake generation, the successors have been available since the beginning of the year. Because both generations are compatible with the LGA 1151 socket and can be used with either the 100 and 200 generation chipsets, there is no reason to keep the Skylake CPUs alive.

In addition, the first CPUs of the Kaby-Lake refresh are already in the starting holes and up to the release of the Core i7-8700K should only pass a few weeks. Recently, the first benchmarks of the Core i7-8700K at 5.0 GHz of an engineering sample were published.

The upcoming processors of the Intel Core i7 series will have up to six cores with HyperThreading.
