More Skylake

Joel Hruska, ExtremeTech, Intel confirms Skylake upgrade for Core M later this year, here.

This may be a marketing decision — with Broadwell still rolling out, Intel likely doesn’t want to put too much emphasis on its next-gen platform or risk a short-term Osborne effect. Intel’s programming documentation suggests that AVX-512, at least, will only be deployed in Xeon-branded Skylake chips — but since AVX-512 is explicitly designed to focus on HPC workloads, consumers may not mind the lack.

May not mind the lack … are you kidding me?
