Intel updates future CPU plans

Just a few days after Intel’s plans regarding Broadwell and the future 9th generation Intel chipsets came out it now seems the US company has further updated its plans regarding the 2014-2015 time frame.

Apparently the US company now plans to introduce a new intermediate processor known as Haswell Refresh. The chip will appear in 2014 and will be an improved version of the current Haswell generation. It is not clear where these improvements will be situated. Haswell Refresh will use the same LGA1150 package current chips use now. As to Broadwell – this chip will be pushed to 2015 instead of the rumoured year 2014.

Unfortunately the problem with the new 9th generation Intel chipsets (Z97 and H97) is that they will support Haswell Refresh and Broadwell but the current Haswell generation will not work in motherboards on Z97 and H97 chipsets due to small but important changes in the power supply scheme. A small consolation is that the new chipset generation will bring support for SATA Express – a technology that will significantly improve SSD speed.
