Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)’s consumer-based desktop roadmap upto the second quarter of 2015 was revealed through a leaked document on a Chinese language website. The document talks about several processors categorized into Mainstream, Premium, and Extreme categories. The release date for Intel’s Broadwell and Skylake-S architectures are, also, given, and both will debut in the second quarter of 2015.
3 Haswell in 3Q from Intel
VR-Zone’s Chinese Channel reported that the company would debut three Haswell E parts chips in the third quarter of 2014. Out of three, Core i7 5930K and 5820K are in the premium category and Core i7 5960K is listed in the Extreme category.
Broadwell have been delayed due to the complicated architecture of 14nm chip. It is widely expected to be released in the second quarter of 2015. The chip will power the 1150 motherboards built around Intel’s 9-Series chipset. These parts are, also, said to feature unlocked multipliers. Another much awaited chip, Skylake-S will build on 14nm manufacturing process, but with a locked multiplier. These will most probably run on socket 1151 motherboards based on Intel’s upcoming 100-Series chipset.
Previously, the Chinese website revealed that Intel has decided to launch Haswell E processors on September 14,2014. If PC makers are looking forward to integrate Haswell E chips in their desktop then they should make sure that other parts of the PC are compatible with the new microprocessor. Intel has stuffed DDR4 memory to the new Haswell E, which is most noted feature in E family microprocessor.
Many versions of Skylake
Rumors suggest that Skylake would have an advanced level of graphic scales with x86 power consumption and DDR4 support. Additionally, the company will ship TDP that would be configurable with Chip. Skylake offers more to CPU by integrating a new instruction set (AVX3) as well as PCIe 4.0 on the high-end Skylake-E, Thunderbolt 3.0, and new security extensions. Intel looks forward to materialize on the cable less future concept.
According to data from WCCFTech, Intel will rollover many Skylake versions, including SKL-Y (embedded and ultra-mobile dual-core with a 4W TDP, LPDDR3 support, and GT2 graphics), SKL-U (dual-core, 15-28W TDP, 64MB of L4 cache, LPDDR3-1600), SKL-H (quad-core, 35-45W TDP, 128MB L4, DDR4-2133), and SKL-S (quad-core, 35W-95W TDP, 64MB L4).
