35W CPU Inbound! (Rumor)

A recent post on benchlife.info showed the spec sheet of the long awaited Skylake-S CPUs. What interested us was the fact of how high the power consumption is of the K (Unlocked) Models; 95 watts!

 Whaaaaaaaaaaaa?

Anyway... after a few minutes of crying we moved down the list and saw an i7 CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads at 3.6 GHZ, AT ONLY 35 WATTS!  Now we're talkin'!!

This made us super excited for the potential of having both gaming and multitasking with a low power requirement. It will be interesting to see how performance will (or will not) be affected by the lower power requirement compared to their K series bigger brothers.
