Intel announced the next generation chips based on Broadwell 14nm architecture last year. However, the product launch got delayed and it was expected to be available in the personal computers sold during the holiday season. Seems like there will be more delay as CNet today reported that broader OEM availability of the next gen Intel mobile CPUs are expected only in 2015.
“We expect the initial Broadwell-based devices, including fanless 2-in-1s built on the Core M processor, will be on shelves by the end of this year with more products and broader OEM availability in 2015,”
At COMPUTEX, Intel revealed more information about their next gen Core product codenamed Broadwell. To demonstrate it, Intel revealed the world’s first 14nm fanless mobile PC reference design from Intel is a 12.5 inch screen that is 7.2mm thin with keyboard detached and weighs 670 grams. The majority of designs based on this new chip are expected to be fanless and deliver both a lightning-fast tablet and a razor-thin laptop.
If you had any plans to delay the purchase of your device for Broadwell based devices, so may have to reconsider it. For example, Microsoft Surface Pro 3 based on Intel Haswell is going on sale tomorrow. You can pre-order it from Microsoft Store today.
