5th gen intel
dose any one know when the 5th gen intel?
Intel should be releasing the socket 1150 Broadwell CPUs in Q4 2014 because they had a problem with low yields using the new 14nm manufacturing process. The problem has been resolved Intel is currently manufacturing Broadwell CPUs, however, these are the embedded version that are meant to be soldered into the motherboard.
Intel will probably start manufacturing socket 1150 Broadwell CPUs in late Q2 or early Q3 2014 so they have plenty to sell in Q4 2014.
The main object of Broadwell is the 14nm die shrink to reduce power consumption. Intel has no really made any statements regarding improved CPU performance so expect maybe on average a 6% improvement over Haswell assuming same number of cores and clockspeed. The integrated graphics core's performance is estimated increase by 30% - 40% vs. Haswell.
As you may have guessed, the focus of Broadwell is mostly for mobile devices (i.e. laptops).
CTurbo said:Broadwell IS the 5th generation of Intel processors and will use the LGA1150 socket. Should be out in the 2nd half of next year.
I guess you mean no-high end processors for using LGA 1150, as it seems logic Broadwell-E 14nm fab will use LGA 2011-3 socket or a new one if Intel releases a new mobo chipset (no x99) due the more reduced transistor's size, I don't know though.
