Intel has launched their new Skylake platform. This newest platform features the 6th generation of Core processors, the Z170 and H170 chipsets, and represents the "tock" in Intel's "tick-tock" manufacturing and design. Like many others, system manufacturer MAINGEAR is looking to fully embrace the new platform.
MAINGEAR is focusing on the gaming performance of this newest platform. Their REDLINE overclocking service will take full advantage of the Turbo Boost Technology found in the new Intel CPUs. These PCs will also utilize the new power saving features found in the Skylake platform, as Intel has further optimized CPU power usage with this latest generation. This will of course allow the processors to run cooler, meaning we should start seeing this platform in gaming notebooks as well.
The Skylake platform is now available in all MAINGEAR desktop systems. From the powerful SHIFT, to the DRIFT Steambox, you can configure a Skylake system today. More info can be found in the press release below.
