Skylake Xeon and AVX-512VL

Hi all, please excuse my ignorance but I am just wondering if the Skylake Xeon processor is released to the market now?

As I need to use the AVX-512VL (not AVX-512F or others) instruction set, and Skylake Xeon seems to be the only choice (Xeon Phi Co-processor supports AVX-512F but not AVX-512VL, am I right?), but I can not find a specific processor model in the market. Anyone can give me any information? Thanks.

It does not look like this product family has been formally announced yet.

Based on the intervals between the launch of major core designs for the last 3-4 generations, an announcement some time in 2017 seems likely.

Thanks John. I'm afraid I have to wait.

Should be coming soon. Amazon announced in Nov that they are expecting to roll out Skylake Xeon systems in early 2017.
