Intel delays new server chips for Q2 2015

The US chip maker Intel has postponed the official release of the new server Haswell-EX (Xeon E7 v3) and Haswell-EP4S (Xeon E5-4600 v3) processors for Q2 2015, thus giving more time to clients to transition to the new platform.

Users of entry-level workstations and servers will be able to enjoy Skylake-based processors including the E3-1280 v5 and E3-1200 v5 processors in Q3 2015 and in the same quarter Intel plans to release the Broadwell-based LGA1150 E3-1200 v4 series of chips.

The Xeon D and Atom C series will get new Broadwell-DE series processors in Q2 2015 to defend the micro-server industry along with processors such as the C2750 and the C2350. In addition to that Intel plans to retire several server processors under the Itanium, Xeon, Xeon Phi and Atom brands between Q4 2014 and Q2 2015.
