Intel Confirms Skylake Is On Schedule

 

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has confirmed that the upcoming Skylake is on time for making it to us by the second half of this year.

This is great news considering Intel has been having some trouble getting the chips down to the 14nm process. With the 14nm issues ironed out, Intel have since released two product ranges on Broadwell, the Broadwell-U and Core M.

Intel Skylake will come in both desktop and mobile forms in the second half of 2015 although there are no specifics at this time on which models will be available.

Intel's CEO stressed the similarities of Broadwell and Skylake at its conference call, further reinforcing the fact we are likely to see both architectures co-exist in the marketplace. "They [Broadwell and Skylake] are on the same technology, the same piece of silicon, it’s the same factory. All we do is change the piece of glass in the scanner to get a different product."

Bonus Ball

Intel's next step following the release of 14nm chips will be to shrink them down further to 10nm. These cores are codenamed 'Cannonlake' In response to an investor question about the 10nm process node, Intel's CEO revealed the company is making further announcements at an investor meeting in November 2015.

I don't know what I'm doing yet. Last year I wanted Skylake, now I want DDR4 now, then I'm thinking just upgrade your GPU and get 4K. Decisions, decisions!Quote

Broadwell will be the last mainstream platform I own, Anything after it will be the top end extreme CPU/mobo Quote

Didn't they say somewhere that there would be no Skylake K series?

Might upgrade my 2600k to a Broadwell when they come out, depends on the temps/clocks.

Any hints on when they'll start coming out?Quote
