Intel to delay Skylake processors

Intel to delay Skylake processors

Intel has unofficially announced that it will delay the release of its 14 nm Skylake processors and the Intel 100-Series Express chipsets. The new hardware can be expected at the end of August and while there isn’t an official confirmation by Intel this information has been freely distributed to motherboard makers so it is all for sure now.

The Skylake generation was first scheduled for Q2 2015 but as you can see this is no longer the case. The delay will also affect the sales of certain Haswell Refresh processors as well as the release of the desktop Broadwell chips and the sales of the already released Broadwell-U mobile processors. In addition PC makers will not be allowed to unveil Skylake PCs during Computex 2015 which is scheduled for June 2015.

The reason for the delay is simple – Intel does not want the already delayed desktop Broadwell processors to compete with Skylake, so it is quite natural that the latter will have to appear a bit later.
