Intel to launch more Broadwell models after all

Intel to launch more Broadwell models after all

This year will be very dynamic for Intel as the chip maker plans to release the desktop Broadwell generation, which will quickly be followed by the all-new Skylake chip line. The short life of Broadwell meant Intel would release just two desktop models or so it reported but apparently changes on the CPU market will make Intel release a few new Broadwell models after Skylake arrives.

The news comes from the Chinese web site PC Online, which claims it has an updated Intel road map for year 2015. The map shows that the Core i5-5675C and Core i7-5775C Broadwell models, which we reported on a while ago, will be somewhat more expensive than the current Core i7-4790K and Core i5-4690K flagships but they will only exist until the release of Skylake. In Q4 2015, after Skylake gets released, Intel will launch a few more Broadwell models that will be faster than the Core i5-5675C and Core i7-5775C. Finally later in the year Intel will launch final Haswell-E chips with higher clock frequencies and then high-end Broadwell-E processors. In 2016 Intel will also release Skylake-E processors.

The Intel Broadwell processor generation will be an update to the current Haswell line. Broadwell will be a Haswell chip made on 14 nm tech process that will have a faster integrated GPU. These will be the only changes in the new chips before Skylake arrives.
