Joel Hruska, Extreme Tech, Intel’s 14nm puzzle: As Skylake details leak, everybody asks – is the chip coming in 2015 or not? here. Get some AVX3.2 juice in 2015 maybe.
Last week, we covered news of a new leaked Intel document that claimed to show the company’s 14nm Broadwell chips pushing back well into 2015. While new ultra-low power silicon will be available by the end of the year, this paper predicted that 14nm Broadwell-H processors — the more mainstream silicon, in other words — won’t ship until Q2 2015. Given this, we predicted that Broadwell’s successor, Skylake, would slip as well, possibly into early 2016. Now fresh documents show the opposite, with Skylake still coming next year.
