Rumours are abound that Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) may come up with socketed Broadwell CPUs for myriad desktop PCs. There might be a hiatus, a short one, between launch of INTC’s Broadwell socketed CPUs and Skylake CPUs – both for desktops. The company expects to come up with two distinct LGA 1150 CPUs (Broadwell based) into the worldwide market.
Broadwell Processors’ Tech-Specifics
The two Broadwell processors are duly built using 14 nanometer processes. The expected launch of the exquisite processors may be sometime during Q2 2015. The quad core parts of the processor comprise hyper-threading. Core i5-5675C and Core i7-5775C have a rated 65W TDP, and comes with exquisite Iris Pro 620 graphics and a supporting memory of DDR3L-1600.
The processors have commendable clock speeds. I7-5775C has a featured clock that runs at a frequency of 3.3 GHz. It may turbo up to the tune of 3.7 GHz and has a 6MB L3 cache. These CPUs have otherwise modest specifics in comparison to that of Haswell brothers – i7-4790K clocked at 4 GHz and i5-4690K clocked at a frequency of 4.4 GHz.
Intel Faced Issues Bringing Broadwell Into Market
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has faced a plethora of troubles during the inception of Broadwell silicon based processors into the global market. The company had come up with low-power Core M during the first launch. This came after numerous delays towards the end of 2014. The performance parts and aspects have not yet debuted.
‘Skylake’ In The Pipeline, May Be Launched During Q3 2015
If INTC moves towards overclocking its processors, it can evolve as another story altogether. However, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) intends to save this for perhaps the next wave of high-fi performing processors; may be the Skylake launch.
It is anticipated that INTC shall launch these Broadwell socketed units (desktop SKUs), along with high performance mobile chips sometime around June 2015 in Computex. It is estimated (rumours are also abound) that Skylake – Intel’s innovative architecture based on the same 14nm node akin to Broadwell will be launched shortly afterwards, during Q3 2015.
