Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has kicked off IDF 2013 and he just showed off the first 14nm Broadwell based notebook. He said that Broadwell based notebooks will ship next year.
The notebook appeared to be working just fine and Krzanich said that by the end of the year Intel plans to ship the first 14nm chips. It helps if you have 60 billion dollars worth of fabs. The notebook looked slim and it looks like Intel is keeping up the tick tock routine. It didn’t went into specifics when it comes next year but it comes next year.
He showed a Windows 8 notebook playing Cut the Rope, meaning that at least one application works on this early version of silicon. Full scale production is definitely kicking off in 2014.
