Intel may have cancelled Broadwell-EP/EX processors
Intel’s Broadwell CPU generation will likely enter history as being one of the most short-lived and the latest proof has just surfaced – various online web sites claim that Intel will even skip the so-called Broadwell-EP/EX processors in favor of the Skylake generation.
There’s a rather serious reason for this claim – the Broadwell-EP/EX generation has disappeared from Intel’s road maps. There isn’t an official announcement by Intel that Broadwell-EP/EX has been canceled but the mere fact that the chips are not there anymore suggests their premature death.
The same thing has already happened to the desktop Broadwell chips – after releasing just two models – the Core i7-5775C and Core i5-5675C – Intel has abandoned this generation in favor of Skylake, which will debut on August 5 this year.
