So here's what I've gathered so far

Release date: Q3/Q4
Max Cores: 4 (plus hyperthreading)
Max Ram: 64GB (4x16GB) DDR4 2133 ECC UDIMM (will support up to 2400)
Socket 1151
Graphics will be GT2 (24 execution units)

Later releases (Q1/Q2 2016) will support GT4e graphics (72 execution units) (will be DDR4 only), 128MB eDRAM, and BGA.

I haven't seen any exact release dates yet but I'm figuring the first half of October given I'm seeing ship dates for some skylake Supermicro boards shipping has a 6-week lead time.

On the chipset side I'm hearing of the the C230 series chipset with emphasis on DDR4 memory but we may see some with DDR3L slots. Max of 20 PCIe 3.0 channels, 8-port 6Gb/s SATA, USB 3.0, Sunrise Point for SATA Express. On-board network will vary between the I219LM (AMT support) or the I219V (no AMT).

Anyone (outside of NDA) hear anything else for the upcoming line?

So no SKU's with more than 4c/8t?

I wonder how they will fare against the D-1540 based boards?

Higher base clock frequency and better GPU. Will be an interesting mix where these may play vs the D-1540 and D-1520 for the performance/value proposition.

Will deff be interesting to see, E3 V5 will be one generation newer for architecture vs xeon-d and have higher clocks, though less cores than the 1540.

Also the Xeon-D will most likely have a lot more PCIE lanes direct to the CPU (32 lanes vs 16 if same as desktop chips) so might just come down to what tasks you are trying to do and how much IO you need as the DMI link to the chipset could potentially end up being a bottleneck on the E3. The DMI link on the current skylake desktop chips is only the equivalent of 4x PCIE 3.0 lanes

Somewhat related tidbit: For whatever reason intel exposes 4 more cpu pci-e lanes on the E3 12x5 xeons when used with C2x6 chipsets, though its up to the motherboard OEM to implement it. On Ivy they were still only 2.0 versus the sixteen 3.0 lanes, not sure about haswell but would be nice if skylake finally makes these 3.0 as well.

This was pretty handy for some C216-based ZFS builds (Asus P8C) I did with dual LSI controllers eating x8 each and a quad or 10Gb nic using the "extra" x4. And no, the extra lanes definitely do not come from the PCH, the SSDs were abusing that bandwidth. (and info buried deep in intel docs will back it up)

They are still made from the same die as their desktop counterparts, but I believe they somehow (firmware?) remap one of the digital video outs for general use instead. At a low level the GPU outs are each x4 ports anyways.

Here's what I'm finding for the initial models to be released this year.

HTML:
Model | Clock | Cache | TDP
E3-1280 v5 | 3.7GHz | 8MB | 80W
E3-1275 v5 | 3.6GHz | 8MB | 80W
E3-1270 v5 | 3.6GHz | 8MB | 80W
E3-1245 v5 | 3.5GHz | 8MB | 80W
E3-1240 v5 | 3.5GHz | 8MB | 80W
E3-1240L v5 | 2.1GHz | 8MB | 25W
E3-1230 v5 | 3.4GHz | 8MB | 80W
E3-1220 v5 | 3.0GHz | 8MB | 80W

The E3-1235L v5 will have Intel HD Graphics while the rest will have Iris Pro Graphics. Looks Like Q1/16 they will be releasing the E3-1500, a BGA sku'd E3 chip.

Any interest into doing a main site post with what you have found on the V5's?

Found more details on E3-1230v5 CPU. It supports 64GB ram, 20 PCIe lanes, and rated at 80W max. Xeon D-1520 supports 128GB RAM, 32 PCIe lanes, rated at 45W max, and currently available at $199.

I want to build an all-in-one home server running ESXi 6 and a ZFS VM using vt-d pass-trough. Seems like Xeon D-1520 is better. I have been waiting for the 1230v5 skylake CPU. Now the D-1520 looks like a better fit. Should I get D-1520 instead?

I refuse to get xeon-D until they give me sfp+ with it. I could maybe take one without any 10gb at all (if it was cheaper), if they would give me 10+ sata ports.

Either Xeon D or Xeon E3 v5 will be sufficient for an ESXi home lab. What's tough is to find an ATX server board with IPMI and enough x16 and x8 PCIe slots for passing through to VMs using vt-d.

the 128mb edram is very interesting, especially if it's in a socket, that made for some unique chips with the 5xxx i7 and v4 xeons and with skylake's higher clocks and memory it should be quite potent.
