More news on the new Broadwell-E CPU family

A few days ago we reported on Intel’s upcoming family of high-end Broadwell-E processors that will come to replace the current crop of Haswell-E chips. The new line will not only bring 14 nm technology to the high-end market segment but also the first consumer 10-core chip in the form of the Core i7-6950X processor. The only thing is that we didn’t know when to expect these chips except that they would be released in Q2 2016, which is still quite a bit of time.

Well, now this question has been solved – new information on Intel’s plans now claims that the new Broadwell-E family will appear during Computex 2016, which is scheduled for May 31- June 4 next year. The good news continues – all new Broadwell-E processors will have 40 PCI-E 3.0 lanes so users will not be restricted as in the case of the cheapest Core i7-5820K Haswell-E chip, which has 28 lanes. The chips will have an integrated quad-channel DDR4-2133/2400 memory controller, unlocked multipliers and TDP of 140 watts.

Unfortunately there’s no information on how much the upcoming Broadwell-E chips will cost but given that they will come with tons of features and performance, there’s no way they will be cheap. In fact such chips have never been easy on the wallet.
