    Intel has confirmed that is has a Skylake processor shortage, mainly for manufacturers. The company shared this information after the CEO of ASUS mentioned that Asus is not receiving enough processors...

    If Intel couldn't meet volume demands, they shouldn't have released yet.

    For AMD this is just a dream beyond the horizon. Expensive CPUs with hefty profit margins, yet the demand is so strong Intel can't manufacture enough.

    Pre-order from Newegg and they'll ship as soon as they get one in. That's how I got my 6600K.

    In south africa the new stuff arrived pretty much right away. I was able to grab the i5-6600k with an asus maximus viii fairly easily. Pleasant surprise. Nothing worse than having to wait for stock when you're ready to upgrade.

    I'm surprised these are selling so well since they offer such little improvement aside from ddr4 support.

    DDR4 out for the masses not just the enthusiast boards, I will to bet alot people waited for DDR4 to available out side of those boards.

    If person is coming from 1st gen i5/i7 they gains should be huge

    There's a lot of people on older platforms that are upgrading. They actually offer a reasonable performance upgrade for those running an i5 2500K or those on first Gen Core series and older processors. For some things, my stock clocked i5 6600K is actually faster than my i7 2600K was at 4.5ghz.

    The shortage could be due to manufacturing issues as well which have been identified on the move to mass production, Intel aren't going to admit that willingly. If this is the case they might have already resolved it, but of course that means availability will be limited in the meantime.

    One aspect that often is forgotten is the chipset improvement. Z170 has DMI 3.0 and which allows for more bandwidth. A biggy is that DMI 3.0 allows for twice the bandwidth on the M.2 port.
