Starting with the Core i5-6600K which will have a total of four cores and no HT support, 6MB cache, a 3.5GHz clock speed (3.9GHz with Boost), 1600/2133MHz DDR3/DDR4 RAM support, Intel HD Graphics 5000 and a 95W TDP. The Core i7-6700K will feature four cores with four Hyper-Threaded cores, 8MB of cache, a 4GHz clock speed (4.2GHz with Boost), 1600/2133MHz DDR3/DDR4 support, Intel HD Graphics 5000 and the same 95W TDP. Both processors will slot right into the new LGA 1151 socket.

The rumored specifications are just that: rumors, especially considering the TDP sitting at 95W. We should expect some decent headroom for overclocking, with 4.5GHz being very easy for the Core i7-6700K to hit. WCCFTech is reporting that they expect something "major" with Skylake, and that it won't just be "another Haswell". We should learn more about Skylake as we get closer to Computex in the first week of June.
