Com APR 2016 MAXIMUMPC 47 Skylake Tick-Tock-Tock? It wouldn’t be an article about a new processor launch without a little future-gazing thrown in for good measure, and the next generation, post Skylake, represents an interesting shift in Intel’s traditional design cadence. The tick-tock model has been in use for a decade now, where the tick represents a shrink in production, using existing processor designs, and the tock sees a whole new CPU architecture introduced at that lithography. That’s going to change with the upcoming Kaby Lake line of Intel processors.

That’s an incredibly impressive place to start, if you think about it. 5W dual-core part, which will be used in tablets and be passively cooled, all the way up to a powerful 45W quad-core gaming processor that can take on desktop CPUs. The main aim of an architectural tock, as opposed to the 14nm die-shrink tick of the Broadwell generation, is to drive home the advantages that change in production process can offer, and design the overriding CPU architecture to match it. So Skylake is all about improving the overall performance—seemingly with a focus on really beefing up the graphical performance—while at the same time making it far more efficient.

Thankfully, it didn’t compromise the overall quality and range of acoustic accuracy. Classical felt a little too bassy, but was still well rounded at the top end. RATM sounded phenomenal here. That huge bass signature, working in conjunction with the trebles and strong mids, ensured you didn’t lose any of the crunch on the guitars. The HPH-PRO400s really do fall down to personal preference. The style isn’t for everyone, we appreciate that, but the sound quality is stunningly good for the price.
