Over 300,000 visitors attend Gamescom in Cologne, Germany and Intel's at the event this week to announce availability of the unlocked Intel Core i7-6700K and Intel Core i5-6600K processors and supporting Intel Z170 chipset. These products start laying the foundation for the 6th generation Intel Core processor family and Intel 100 series chipset coming later this year.

Targeted especially at gamers and overclockers, these new products are on display with Intel hosting a modding contest showing off the cool and creative things people love to do with the desktop platform. With full DDR4 memory support for the first time on mainstream desktop, the return of full range base-clock for fine-grained CPU speed tuning for the overclockers, and up to 4 cores at 4.0 GHz base frequency, there is plenty to get excited about at the show.

Intel partners are getting in on the act and are showing off systems based on the new platform - Asrock, ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI and Supermicro with feature-rich motherboards especially for the enthusiast segment and mind-blowing complete systems from OEMs such as Alienware, Acer, ALTERNATE, ASUS, HP, SCAN, Tones and others.

Other Intel technologies are also being featured such as the new Thunderbolt 3 technology and the latest Intel solid-state drives for even more of a performance boost. Intel introduced an 800GB model in the Intel SSD 750 series at Gamescom. And let's not forget just-released Microsoft Windows 10 with the power and features to help make the platform really sing - bringing the new Microsoft DirectX 12 API and Xbox applications to the PC.

Intel also announced plans to deliver an unlocked 6th generation Intel Core processor K SKU for enthusiast notebooks later this year. This will be the first unlocked enthusiast K SKU for mobile.

The Intel Core i7-6700K and Intel Core i5-6600K processors are available now at recommended channel pricing of $350.00 and $243.00, respectively.

Eventually, Apple will refresh their iMac lineup with Skylake chips. I'll consider trading mine in if they do, will also most likely come with a nice graphics upgrade as well.
