Intel to release Broadwell-E processors in 2016

A true hardware enthusiast can be never satisfied with the performance and features he/she gets from the latest and most powerful processor generation there is. In our case at the moment this is the so-called Haswell-E line, which was unveiled just a few weeks ago. Despite the fact that the line offers the first desktop chip with 8 processing cores and 16 threads in execution at once, tons of L3 cache and various other features, people on the Internet have already started talking about the next generation high-end Intel processors – Broadwell-E.

Well, the news cannot be called good – according to the information available the first Intel Broadwell-E processors will arrive in Q1 2016 at the earliest. Furthermore, Intel does not plan to introduce any new Haswell-E processors in 2015 but there’s some light in the darkness here – Broadwell-E will use the same LGA 2011-3 socket currently available in all Intel X99-based motherboard so a motherboard upgrade will not be needed.

Broadwell-E will be built on 14 nm tech process and will have 6 to 8 cores, up to 20 MB of L3 cache and support for quad-channeled DDR4-2400 memory. The chip will also offer 40 PCI-E 3.0 lanes that will be split among three videocards in a x16-x16-x8 configuration. Broadwell-E will also have TDP of 140 watts and Turbo Boost 2 technology.
