The problem with the release of a new generation of Intel Broadwell processors is well known. Despite the fact that their announcement is traditionally held in the framework of the June Computex, delivery partners and independent software vendors with the subsequent appearance in the finished product could be delayed almost until next year. However, in his next speech, the Intel hastened to reassure the public.
Brian Krzanich personally promised that the company will make the necessary volume of shipments, so that producers managed to collect new notebooks based on Broadwell for New Year and Christmas holidays . Thus , the updated MacBook Pro can be transferred to the new cost-effective platform .
Chapter Intel added that at the beginning of the school year Intel Broadwell, likely , unlikely to ripen . He made a comparison : for example, to bring to the market for the season “back to school” new computer models , they need to be shipped to stores in August or even July – formally the same seasonal excitement begins with the school year . Respectively , and Christmas sales with laptops based on Broadwell company does not want to be late , but because chances are good that the first ” swallow ” will appear in October – November.
It will be recalled that the 14 – nm Broadwell will replace the current processors Haswell, manufactured on 22 nm process . It is the transition to more advanced technology is the cause of serious production disruptions due to which , in turn, delayed time of appearance of chips widely available .
Broadwell processors will be the first on the market , made at rates 14 – nm process technology. In the new architecture of the processor giant promises to increase energy efficiency up to 30% . Priority at this time , as in the case of Haswell, will be the improvement of energy efficiency rather than performance .
