Intel may postpone Broadwell to year 2015

Intel may postpone Broadwell to year 2015

The PC market slump and a few more reasons may have pushed Intel to postpone its Broadwell processors until 2015, the latest information around the US chip giant claims.

At first Broadwell was scheduled for production at the end of Q1 2014 with a later launch in Q3 2014 but it appears that the first Broadwell chips on 14 nm technology will appear only at the end of the year in limited quantities with a mass market launch postponed until sometime in 2015.

The reasons for the delay are not related to problems with the very thin 14 nm production process; instead Intel does not believe that the right time for Broadwell has come with very sluggish PC sales in 2013 and low consumer interest in the latest Haswell processors. That’s why the US company plans to release limited quantities of low power U- and Y- Broadwell notebook processors at the end of 2014; desktop consumers will likely have to wait some more time. The bad news is further aggravated by the expectation that Broadwell will focus more on energy efficiency rather than on performance as it has been with most new Intel processors.
