Broadwell expected at Computex

Written by Nick Farrell

Probably a sneak preview

While Chipzilla is telling the world+dog that Broadwell will show up later this year, the rumour mill has churned out a yarn which suggests it might make a surprise appearance in the next few days at Computex.

Only two weeks ago, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich all but ruled out the possibility of the company’s next-generation Broadwell processors shipping in time for the back-to-school season, saying that the first devices built around the 14nm die shrink of Intel’s Haswell microarchitecture were more likely to be available sometime around the holidays.

The manufacturing problems with Broadwell are a rare misstep for the world's biggest chip maker and one it does not want to talk much about. According to IDG News Service report, citing unnamed sources familiar with the chip maker’s plans, Intel is going to show off a Broadwell-powered 2-in-1 device at the upcoming Computex trade show (June 3-7) in Taipei.

Codenamed “Llama Mountain,” the rumoured laptop-tablet hybrid is said to be really thin. We have nothing more on this, but if Intel does get its act together and show off a Broadwell product at Computex then it will be big news.

Intel has said Broadwell chips will be 30 percent more power-efficient and faster than their Haswell counterparts, and also boast better graphics. Desktop variants of the chip will support new technologies like DDR4 memory, and also have new graphics cores. However, the first Broadwell parts will be a slimmed down version.
