Even with Broadwell not completely out of the door, a lot of attention is being put towards Skylake, the 14nm architecture update from Intel. Current information out the wild seems to contain a lot of hearsay and supposed leaks, but now we actually have at least some indication that Skylake is coming thanks to ComputerBase.de who spotted an ASRock industrial motherboard with the LGA1151 socket for Skylake processors at Embedded World. Given how far Skylake is away from market, chances are that this motherboard is a mock-up rather than a working unit as we would imagine Intel to still be working on the first round or two of CPU steppings at this point. The motherboard does show up some interesting differences to Haswell, such as...
