The fact that Intel officially announced a (further) rejection of the move to 10 nm manufacturing does not mean that the company is planning to rest - to believe its updated slides released on the network now, in the coming 12 months we will see the entire company's home product line updated and upgraded, And that includes the Extreme processors that almost every performance addict strives for.

The seemingly updated roadmaps confirm what we already knew - processors The first will arrive in the third quarter of 2015, starting with the 5 for August, as we have already reported.


All models i7 and i5, known to us from information disclosed earlier, will be launched in August and September, i3, Pentium and Celeron will arrive in October-December 2015. The division between the i5 and i7 for the i3 and everything under it continues to be very clear and absolute, it seems, so anyone who expected to see a processor Cheap i3 with four-core physical processing - will probably have to wait until 2017 to a minimum.


Another noteworthy fact is that the few Broadwell desktop desktops launched a month and a half ago will indeed be the only fifth-generation Core Representatives within the LGA residency, and will continue to be marketed alongside the Skylake processors - seemingly as a "fuller" solution , Which will allow consumers to get high overall processing performance and "good enough" graphics processing (if not aimed at gaming at super-resolution), in one package and no extra for a discreet video card. Think of it as a 'premium' alternative to the APU series , Who have been insisting for years that they provide a solution that meets most of the requirements without the need for an additional video card.

In addition, based on the roadmaps, the Skylake-refreshed generation, the Kaby Lake generation, will not see light until the third quarter of 2016 - something to consider if you decide to wait for the upgrade after the official launch of the sixth.

There is also a plan to "eliminate" a large portion of the low-market processors that still roam the various stores

Now, let's move on to Cherry - the next generation of the chipset's extreme processor, the Broadwell-E generation. The new generation is due to arrive in the first three months of next year, with a new 14 nanometer lithography (first in the Extreme family processors) and general features similar to those of the next generation-E present: models with 6 and 8 processing cores under the K models (open product with limited final level) and X (unlimited open product), up to 20 megabytes of Third level cache, up to 40 channels 3.0 between the processor and the motherboard, DMI 2.0 connectivity up to 20 Gb / s between the processor and the chipset, and a thermal envelope of 140 watts.

The new generation of Extreme will reach us within six months, but it will not bring with it particularly significant news compared to what we received last year

In fact, even the Broadwell-E generation chipset and chipset will be the LGA 2011-v.3 and X99 respectively, as in the current generation - though Intel makes sure to note that theE will not be supported for some reason by the latest motherboards that will be launched alongside the E-E, thus strengthening the feeling that the company is marching to a situation where upgrading the processor will always lead to an upgrade of the motherboard, without the ability to influence or control the consumer.

Characteristics of the E-E. Compared with the-E (top). Try to find the differences

As it seems at the moment, the most significant improvement for the Broadwell-E generation will be built-in memory support Faster 2,400MHz compared to 2,133MHz in the current Extreme Generation. Also, you can guess that the new generation will offer upgraded clock frequencies to help moderate overall performance - given that theE will offer the same TDP envelope, but based on improved lithography.

All of this information comes to us right next to the information about our programs For 2016, which sounds interesting and even as promising as the - And we have nothing but good luck for both parties, and hope for a renewed renaissance in terms of performance and capabilities in the desktop computing market.
