Top/Best Intel Skylake CPU's for the LGA-1151 Socket reviewed and compared.

LAST UPDATED: 07/16/2017

Skylake is the codename used by Intel for a processor microarchitecture which was launched in August 2015 succeeding the Broadwell microarchitecture.

Skylake is a microarchitecture redesign using the same 14 nm manufacturing process technology as its predecessor Broadwell, serving as a "tock" in Intel's "tick-tock" manufacturing and design model. According to Intel, the redesign brings greater CPU and GPU performance and reduced power consumption. It has been succeeded by Kaby Lake. Skylake is the last Intel platform fully supported for versions of Windows earlier than Windows 10.
