Looks like Intel will be shipping their new chips early next year. Was thinking of building a new PC for Xmas but I'm wondering on whether to wait now. Seeing as the Haswell chip was only a small step.
The new chip will be 14nm and 30% power reduction. All looking good.
They're also bringing out a cut down core in 14nm called Quark.

Good find Snowy  :thumbsup:

One thing stands out, the new chips will work on a Haswell mobo so it must be the same architecture just a size down.

So something like 5 to 10% performance increase over Haswell could be a reasonable assumption.   

Snowcrash

Maybe more but probably not. Looks more like their aiming at the power decrease.

Little up date here:

It appears that some of the reports of Broadwell cpus working on Haswell mobos might have been wrong.

Hmm, more research needed.

Intel delays Broadwell chips for PCs and hybrids

Intel ran into some problems with the 14-nanometer process used to manufacture the chips and will have to fix them before it can resume production.

Thinking of having an early xmas prezzie for me.

Will cost up a new rig soon and post what I think.

Always makes me happy when a new puter is on the cards  ;D

Dang my less than a year old Ivrybrige is almost an antique already  :o

I'm still running a Q6600 first gen quad core. Or 3 generations before the first i7.

from your other post, it looks like you will not be saying that for too much longer   :party-time:

Haswell, Broadwell both out of the question for me, Hmm maybe a Sky ( tempting 14nm, SATA Express, and ddr4)  ;)

I was wondering how Intel were doing with their 5th gen chips and did a quick hunt on google.

I looks like we will see Broadwell come to market around Christmas time.

They do now have working chips:

Nice. And I think these will be socket LGA 1150 too according to this, so we can use them  8)

just in time for a new build lol only joking  :LOL:
I'm actually going to try and hold off on a new build for at least 2 more years, However with 4k and 8k monitors coming out I might just get the urge one day to upgrade  my monitors and GPU :scratch-head:

Has anyone seen Broadwell ?

It should have arrived by now, October / November we were told, I'm still not seeing it on any sites.
