Ryan Smith, Anand Tech, IDF 2014: Intel Demonstrates Skylake, Due H2’2015, here.  Probably want some Skylake and ICC prerelease to get app software in place for the release.  If you are running Westmere in prod, don’t worry there are plenty of kick ass apps running on chips released in 2010. Moore’s Law isn’t uniformly enforced so it’s OK.
