Intel desktop roadmap leaked

Written by Nick Farrell

Broadwell and Skylake processors in 2015

VR-Zone found a leaked slide detailing the Intel desktop roadmap for the next five quarters. There is little in the slide we had not already guessed using Fudzilla’s sophisticated roadmap divination ritual, confirms what the Tarot cards had told us.

Firstly the Haswell-E extreme CPUs will be in the shops in time for this holiday season, and then there will be a release of Broadwell and Skylake processors in 2015.

Haswell-E i7-5820K, i7-5930K and i7-5960X models will be available in the third quarter 2014, and they will supersede Ivy Bridge-based Core i7-4820K, i7-4930K and i7-4960X. The most anticipated features of future Haswell-E parts are larger number of cores, up to 8, and support for DDR4 memory.

As we expected Broadwell and Skylake-S CPUs, both manufactured on 14nm technology, will be launched in Q2 2015. Broadwell processors will have unlocked clock multiplier, and they will be supported by existing socket 1150 motherboards with 9-series chipsets.

Skylake-S parts will be frequency-locked. They will require different boards with a new socket 1151, and they will be paired with 100 series chipset.
