The good people at ThinkComputers have very kindly translated a report from VR-Zone about Intel's Skylake platform. While there have been many leaks in that past which have indicated that it would support PCI-Express 4.0. This, however is not true but the platform will still support DDR4.

While there has been no official announcement as to when Skylake will be released (all reports say 2015) the first CPU (Skylake Xeon) will be the "E3-1200" model. As mentioned above it will support DDR4 and will have 4 DIMM slots which means it will be able to handle 64GB of RAM! Nice! It will also have support for up to 20 PCI-E 3.0 lanes, 8 SATA 6GB/s ports and 3 SATA Express ports.

We'll be sure to keep you up to date with any more developments.
