Replace H81 H110 latest third quarter, Intel Skylake-S platform chip information and specifications confirmed
Intel 100 series
motherboards confirm the second quarter of 2015 debut, and now one step closer to the information out.
2015 second quarter for Intel, it may quite busy, because in addition to Broadwell processor, while there will be Skylake
platform will debut.
Intel Broadwell processors will start shipping from the third quarter of 2014, beginning with Y series will be based, as for other types of products, at least until the second quarter of 2015. Products which use desktop processors will provide Broadwell in the series can be overclocked, non-overclocked series and commercial markets Skylake-S
platform and with a 100 series processors
Intel can now confirm that in 2015 will be fully imported 100 series chip
Commercial market segments, Q170
and Q87 will be replaced Q85, there, Q170 support vPro and SIPP, while the Q150 supports only SIPP; B85 SMB section will be replaced by B150
; finally in the consumer market segment, Z170
will replace Z97 , Z87, H170
is replaced by H97 and H87. Above the wafer will be completed in the second quarter of 2015 to replace the old products.
Lowest order, also accounted for the largest motherboard factory shipments H81 chip is to be replaced by H110
wait until the third quarter of 2015.
The most outstanding feature of this generation products should be SSIC full name SuperSpeed USB Inter-Chip's. SSIC specification has confirmed a year, but it is by MIPI Alliance (Mobile Industry Processor Interface Alliance) and USB 3.0 Promoter Group jointly developed, USB-IF has been submitted as an open standard, belongs to the wafer to wafer USB interconnect specification.
More important part is, SSIC combination of M-PHY high bandwidth and low power performance outside the MIPI Alliance, along with SuperSpeed USB performance.
The rest did not change much, the message from the point of view already know, Intel will not let H110 has a port SATA Express functions; addition, in H110, B150 and Q150 part does not support Intel RST, but fortunately only for PCIe Storage section .
On the other hand, PCIe bandwidth are different. H170 and Q170 chip can provide the maximum 20 Lanes of the PCIe GEN 3, but others such as H170 maximum can go to 16, Q150 was 10, B150 will have 8 Lanes, but inside the most miserable or H110, because it is only 6 Lanes of the PCIe Gen 2 only.
In the I / O SKU part of it has not changed much, but Skylake-S platform has confirmed will be transferred to DDR4 memory, but also close to several generations, including Broadwell use the built-in voltage regulator module FIVR (Full Integrated Voltage Regulator) abandon .
I believe Intel will be held in September in San Francisco announced Skylake platform, and perhaps also a little mention 10nm manufacturing process Cannonlake platform.
