Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K and i5-6600K Box Art Leaked
The retail packaging for Intel’s upcoming Skylake processors has leaked online, giving us our first legitimate look at the Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K.
The two processors have been at the center of rumors for the past two months suggesting that the products are going to be feature-loaded. From the leaked images of the box window, it is now confirmed that Core i7-6700K will be an an 8-threaded CPU (with 4 physical cores, and 4 HT cores), whereas Core i5-6600K features just four physical cores.
Clock speeds are at 4.0GHz and 3.5GHz for the i7 and i5 respectively, while both CPUs ship with support for dual-channel DDR4 and DDR3L memory, as well as Intel HD Graphics 530.
As for the box package, Intel has used a more vibrant color scheme for the latest Skylake-S box art, featuring the blurred lines likely trying to invoke a sense of speed.
The i7 packaging has a warmer red/purple/orange hue, while the i5 stays the course with plain old green/blue.
Further, the box doesn’t come with any heatsink making it slimmer, along with allowing consumers to use their own current or new high-performance coolers.
The processors are expected to launch within the week and they will ship with three years of warranty from Intel. Pricing details have not been revealed yet.
