Agam Shah, PC World, Dell laptops listed with Intel’s inreleased Broadwell PC chip, here. 14nm for the Holidays.
It’s been a long wait for mainstream PCs that use Intel Core processors based on the Broadwell architecture, but Dell has listed laptops that could ship with the unreleased chips early next year.
Models of Dell’s Latitude 14 3000 (14-inch screen) and Latitude 15 3000 (15-inch screen) will have “5th Generation Intel Celeron, Core up to i7 processors,” according to specification sheets of the products provided by the PC maker.
The documents list the laptops as having life cycles between January 2015 and April 2016, indicating the products could start shipping early next year.
Dell is among the first PC makers to reveal laptops with fifth-generation Core processors, which are targeted at mainstream and business PCs. Shipments of PCs with those chips were pushed to early next year partly due to manufacturing issues on Intel’s new 14-nanometer process.
