Intel Skylake 6th Generation Core i3 Processors

See also Intel Skylake 6th Generation Pentium, Core i5 and Core i7 Processors.

Intel's latest CPUs were codenamed 'Skylake' but are more officially known as 6th Generation Intel Core processors. The familiar i3 /i5 / i7 branding is retained and easily allows customers to identify the entry level, mid-range and premium versions respectively. As you might expect, with this new generation of processors comes improved performance and an overall reduction in power requirements.

Improved on-board graphics

Perhaps the biggest improvement is in the area of embedded graphics. With this new generation of CPUs the graphics are now known as HD 530 and with the change of name comes about a significant improvement in performance, especially for 3D games and applications. Furthermore, up to three separate displays can now be driven simultaneously, reducing the need for a discrete graphics card where triple-head monitors are required.

Guide to suffix variants

The single-letter suffix on each model of processor denotes whether it can be overclocked (K), or is low-power (no suffix) or ultra-low power (T). Note that 'power' in this context refers to electrical power, not computational power. We recommend no suffix or T suffix processors where cool-running / energy saving is required, or K-series processors where maximum performance is desirable and sufficient cooling can be provided accordingly.

Variant performance comparisons

In terms of computational performance, Intel don't provide official figures for their processors because so much depends on other hardware such as motherboard, type of memory, etc. So instead, we would suggest that potential customers refer to real-world empirical performance benchmarks such as those published by Passmark and quoted / linked to in the specification table below. These allow a simple comparison to be made between the different variants of processors and are based upon the averaged results of many users' PC systems across the world. An opinion about the relative performance differences between each model of processor can therefore be quickly formed.
