Intel’s new Skylake i7 and i5 processors have received South African pricing at local retailers Rebel Tech and Wootware.
The new CPUs form part of Intel’s sixth-generation range of desktop processors, with the i7 and i5 versions listed both quad-core models.
Those interested in the Skylake processors should note that there is a new platform for the CPUs, the Z170 chipset, which uses DDR4 RAM, but allows for DDR3L memory on certain motherboards thanks to a dual-memory controller.
The new platform will also come with Intel HD 530 graphics – said to be up to 40% faster than Intel HD graphics.
The CPU pricing is detailed in the table below.
|Intel i7-6700K 4GHz||R5,099||R5,266|
