Intel's 14 nm "Broadwell" Could Launch by Late-2014

Intel's first processors based on the company's "Broadwell" silicon, which is an incremental upgrade to "Haswell," and built on Intel's swanky new 14 nanometer silicon fabrication process, could launch by late-2014. Intel responded to the 2014 "Back to School" shopping season with 9-series chipset motherboards featuring LGA1150 sockets, and Core "Haswell" Refresh processors. Mobile CPUs based on the silicon, were launched, too. Intel couldn't deliver on "Broadwell," the processor its 9-series chipset was originally designed to accompany. Back in 2013, "Broadwell" was expected to be Intel's big mid-2014 launch, in tune with its "Tick-Tock" product development strategy, that sees introductions of new micro-architectures, and new silicon fabrication processes take turns each year.

Sorry but why do you type one and the same old news multiple times? Is it just a confirmation because we already knew in the beginning of this year the news :

Intel postpones Broadwell availability to 4Q14

Is there something wrong with reposting it to their own forums? Certainly thats from other site. This is TPU and the editors are just sharing. Personally, you wouldnt expect me to search about it. TPU is a site I visited atleast twice a day and I am glad to read here some computer news in which even it was posted somewhere, I am still glad I am updated because of just visiting this forum

3 months later? :laugh:

Of course there is much wrong with it, the news itself is very unpleasant and annoying for those who need to upgrade now with something decent but need to wait...

TPU didn't even care (as far as I checked the old articles) back then in February to post the news (even if only as a rumour coming from the supply chain).

Whatever, move on!

I've got Ivy Bridge now, and plan to sit tight until Skylake. DDR4, SATA Express, PCIe 4.0, etc. :-)

Heck, I'm still using my Nehalem (i7 965) chip and happy as if I had good sense. Paired it with a R9 290x and have yet to see much bottleneck.

:shadedshu: It's not our f*cking problem if you have an ax to grind with Intel/TPU/your P.C./whatever.:rolleyes:

Yeah, do not be so sure about PCIe 4.0, intel on the one hand and nVidia introduced new types of interconnect, both for the server platform.
Do not be so sure that the already enough PCIe 3.0 bandwidth will be replace by something new for marketing reasons. No-one is going to bother creating something just for the spoiled kid which wants to have the latest but is unable to use it.

Well I am thankful that TPU brings us the tech info regardless.

I'm still more interested in Haswell-E personally.

Can someone comment on the pic's chip?

It's elongated like an old school Pentium III Katmai.

If you're referring to the silicon, Intel processors since Sandy Bridge have been that shape. If you're referring to the package, it's elongated due to the integration of the PCH.

Yeah that how it works Buy the best motherboard + CPU that support future tech, and just upgrade the GPU now and then:), I mean I have a friend who is still using Asus X58 Deluxe motherboard and we get approximately the same FPS.

Im very interested in Haswell-E platform coming soon more than anything. Its supposed to be right after Devils Canyon which should bring a cool new X99 platform and some 8 core unlocked Intel processors. I really wanna take one and push it to the max next, im interested in Broadwells platform as well but the E series is the platform that always keeps my interest now a days (Though Devils canyon seemed to be moving back in the right direction like Sandy was).

Thanks for the clarification. I was referring to the package not the chipset, as you stated.

I have bad news for you. According to the roadmap Skylake is the same chip except with those features, so it won't be any faster.

x86 is done. Pile on more cores, but that's all we're gonna get.

It's my understanding that Bta doesn't like posting news unless he has multiple sources (you know, actual journalism), so even if the cited article is a few monthes or weeks old he could have just gotten confirmation from another source and is citing the oldest known report he could find. If you want "news" as fast as humanly possible whether or not it's remotely accurate check out Fudzilla, if you want news that is somewhat vetted and generally accurate, TPU does a good job.

EDIT: I'd trust Reuters over digitimes any day of the week.

You can safely add another 1 or 2 years since this one, as the title say, will only be an incremental upgrade, NOT a new tech, like it was from Core 2 to Core I.

It's accurate though. I love it as a developer for software that runs on servers though.

You'll see a bottleneck at your wallet when your electricity bill arrives.

I'm a litecoin miner, that little 45nm i7 is the least of my worries.

Yeah $10 dollars more a month for an enthusiast chip that still keeps up with current offerings.
