Upcoming Skylake Processors Present In Retina MacBook Are Reportedly To Be Branded As Lower-Power Skylake-Y Processors

According to a source, Intel is reportedly going to incorporate low-power Skylake-Y chips as Core M3, Core M5 and Core M7, according to the level of performance that they can deliver. The lowest performing processor is going to be named Core M3 6Y30; it is going to be running at a default clock speed of 900 MHz, and will comprise up of two cores. While the clock speed might be on the low side, Intel’s Turbo Boost technology will take that speed for both cores up to 2.2 GHz, in demanding situations. Other specification details have been listed below:

  • L3 cache: 4MB
  • Graphics processor: Intel HD 515 iGPU running at a speed of 850 MHz
  • TDP: 4.5 watts
  • Expected price: $1,299

Coming to the mid-performing processors; they are going to be named Core M5 6Y54 and Core M5 6Y57 and will be running at a clock speed of 1.1 GHz. The Turbo Boost technology will take their speeds up to 2.7 GHz and 2.8 GHz respectively, and for your convenience, the remaining specification details have been listed below:

  • L3 cache: 4MB
  • Graphics processor: Intel HD 515 iGPU running at a speed of 900 MHz
  • TDP: 4.5 watts
  • Expected price: $1,599

These sixth-generation Core M processors are most likely going to launch next month and are going to be showcased during the IFA Berlin trade show that is going to be held from September 4-9. Just like before, we expect Apple to adopt a very thin form factor for its upcoming notebooks, giving preference to portability rather than raw processing firepower and bulkiness of a notebook. However this time, it would be great to see some additional connectivity buttons ranging from USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, along with some display connectors for extra flexibility.

Hopefully, Apple will not let us down in this particular department.
