(neither does consumer Skylake to my best knowledge. Only the -E to be released in an year or so is rumoured to have it)

He said he bought it from ebay, so I assumed an economic metric (performance/$) rather than a technical or environmental one.

I benchmarked skylake against its cousin i7 2500, and don't expect miracles from the CPU. Most changes nowadays are in the GPU, the rest is just a few percent per generation at best.
