This morning at the Intel Developers Conference in San Francisco, Intel PC Client Group Vice President Kirk Skaugen offered a live demo of "Skylake," the follow-on to the company's Broadwell processor platform.  Set for launch before the end of 2015, the platform is claimed to offer significant battery life gains for 2-in-1 hybrids and tablets. Though they're built on the same 14nm process as Intel's Broadwell architecture, the design is reported to incorporate some significant advancements including, finally, the full realization of wireless charging and data streaming between devices in what Skaugen noted as a campaign to"ditch the brick" (meaning the power brick).

Skylake is reported to have significant departures in its architecture versus Broadwell, including the lack of Intel's FIVR technology (Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator) but also other feature integration as well.

There will of course be a number of variants of Skylake introduced for various devices and platforms but Skaugen no doubt demonstrated Skylake Y, which is the low power variant for tablets and 2-in-1 hybrids. Seen live here in action, Skylake is able to handle the 3DMark graphics performance benchmark with ease.

More from IDF as our show coverage continues, but for now it seems Skylake is looking alive and very well.

I love it when they release new tech. It usually means good news for consumers.

Good to see the next gen in action already.
