Intel and AMD may postpone their next-gen processors

It seems that two of the most expected product launches of the year may not happen in 2016 – there are rumors that both Intel and AMD have delayed their Kaby Lake and Zen processors, respectively, for next year.

The information has not been confirmed but the rumors persist. According to this unconfirmed information Intel has postponed the Kaby Lake generation for January 2017 when the new chips will be unveiled at CES 2017. The reasons are simple – Kaby Lake will come with minimal improvements compared to the current Skylake generation and in addition to this Intel has tons of unsold Haswell and Skylake processors that have to go before the new chip generation shows up.

As to AMD, the US chip maker will unveil Zen only in Q1 2017 in order to have some more time to polish both the architecture and the chip and to create a better infrastructure for the AM4 socket and Zen. As you know AMD pins high hopes on this new chip so there’s no room for mistakes and nasty bugs like it happened with the first Phenom chip and its TLB problem.
