Broadwell to arrive on June 2

Despite Skylake being on the horizon Intel’s desktop Broadwell processors have been in the news almost every day lately. We now know that we will get just two desktop models – the Core i7-5775C (quad core, Hyper-Threading, 3.3 GHz /3.7 GHz Turbo, 6 MB L3 cache, 65W TDP) and the Core i5-5675C (quad core, no Hyper-Threading, 3.1 GHz/3.6 GHz Turbo, 4 MB L3 cache, 65W TDP) but we haven’t had a release date just yet.

According to some Japanese sources this is no longer the case – the two desktop Broadwell processors will be launched on June 2, 2015 during Computex 2015. They will come with Intel’s latest 14 nm production process and will feature an unlocked multiplier, which will make overclocking an easy task. The June 2 release is also in line with Intel’s marketing strategy – summer months are usually slow when it comes to sales so the existence of Broadwell on the desktop PC market will help sales a bit.

Unfortunately for owners of LGA 1150 motherboards the desktop Broadwell processors will be short-lived since their successor called Skylake will appear at the end of August this year. Still, putting a Broadwell chip into your LGA 1150 board may be a nice upgrade path for some PC users, especially given the fact that thanks to the fine 14 nm production process certain Broadwell chips have reached 5 GHz when overclocked and all this with just air cooling.
