Intel to release Devil’s Canyon processors this summer

The US chip maker Intel has shared interesting new details about its future plans at the on-going Game Developers Conference. According to this information Intel will release a bunch of new processors by the end of the year.

The first new processors will carry the Devil’s Canyon codename and will be Haswell-based processors with unlocked multipliers, easier overclocking capabilities, new TDP and improved chip casing that will be optimized for high temperatures. In addition to these chips Intel will also release Intel Core Extreme Edition processors with eight processing cores and support for Hyper-Threading technology that will make it possible to process 16 threads at once. These new chips will ship in H2 2014 and will natively support DDR4 memory.

The new unlocked Pentium will also come this year to celebrate the release of the original Pentium processor 21 years ago. The processor will come with some serious overclocking potential. The last in line is the Broadwell generation – it is expected to arrive with the 5th generation Core chips and will have Iris Pro graphics on the die.
