The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth rumour that Intel will lift the kimono in its Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K as well as Z170 chipsets.
The reason that Gamescom was selected was because it is initially targeting gamers.
Intel is expected to unveil its Skylake-based Core i7-6700/6700T, Core i5-6600, 6500, 6400, 6600T, 6500T and 6400T, and H170 and B150 chipsets between August 30-September 5.
The H110 chipsets are scheduled to be released between September 27 and October 3, the Q170 and Q150 chipsets are set for October or November.
Motherboard makes will start announcing their 100-series-based motherboards on August 5. The Skylake platform adopts an LGA1151 socket design and supports DDR4 memory.
Notebook versions of Skylake will be in the shops in the run up to Christmas. Chipzilla's notebook reference design for the Skylake platform includes support for USB 3.1 Type-C ports.
