Intel Broadwell


Looks like Intel will be shipping their new chips early next year. Was thinking of building a new PC for Xmas but I'm wondering on whether to wait now. Seeing as the Haswell chip was only a small step.
The new chip will be 14nm and 30% power reduction. All looking good.
They're also bringing out a cut down core in 14nm called Quark.

Good find Snowy  thumbsup

One thing stands out, the new chips will work on a Haswell mobo so it must be the same architecture just a size down.

So something like 5 to 10% performance increase over Haswell could be a reasonable assumption.

Maybe more but probably not. Looks more like their aiming at the power decrease.

Re: Intel Broadwell


Little up date here:

It appears that some of the reports of Broadwell cpus working on Haswell mobos might have been wrong.

Hmm, more research needed.

Intel delays Broadwell chips for PCs and hybrids

Intel ran into some problems with the 14-nanometer process used to manufacture the chips and will have to fix them before it can resume production.

Re: Intel Broadwell


I'm still running a Q6600 first gen quad core. Or 3 generations before the first i7.

from your other post, it looks like you will not be saying that for too much longer   party-time

Haswell, Broadwell both out of the question for me, Hmm maybe a Sky ( tempting 14nm, SATA Express, and ddr4)  Wink

Re: Intel Broadwell


I was wondering how Intel were doing with their 5th gen chips and did a quick hunt on google.

I looks like we will see Broadwell come to market around Christmas time.

They do now have working chips:
