Intel Core i7-6560U is part of the Skylake generation processors and it’s entitled to the ULV lineup (ultra-low voltage) with 14nm FinFET manufacturing process. It has two cores that support Hyper-Threading technology resulting in up to 4 threads.
The CPU is clocked at 2.2GHz and can go up to 3.2GHz for one active core or 3.1GHz for two active cores. Also, the silicon includes an Intel Iris Graphics 540 iGPU that sports 48 Execution Units ticking at 300 MHz and can go up to 1.05 GHz. The whole SoC supports DDR4-2133/LPDDR3-1866/DDR3L-1600 memory in a dual-channel array. The whole chip is rated at 15W TDP including the memory controller and the integrated graphics thus making it suitable for 11-inch notebooks or bigger. It also supports the cTDP down feature and the OEM can lower the TDP to 7.5W.
