Intel Announces Skylake for 2H’ 2015

It’s finally offical!


Today at Intel’s annual developer conference the company formally announced the name of their 2015 main stream client processor: Skylake. This is a name that our readers have known for some time. Skylake is Intel’s 2nd generation 14nm chip and is designed to replace the Broadwell offerings that are just starting to popup. The interesting part of this announcement is the timing of Skylake’s arrival in late 2015. It appears that the delays that pushed Broadwell back until this quarter have affected the roadmap and pushed Skylake out until about this time next year. According to Intel, Skylake will be targeted at all of Intel’s traditional client markets like laptops, desktops, and gaming. All in all Intel didn’t have a whole lot to say. Broadwell is here; Skylake is coming and details are sparse.S|A
