Intel Preps Next Gen Desktop Procs

  • Intel's first Broadwell chips set the stage for faster PCs

    The chips will make their way into desktops during the second half of 2014

    Haswell, move over. Intel has provided an initial glimpse into the faster and more power-efficient fifth-generation Core processors code-named Broadwell, which will be in PCs during the second half of this year.

    Intel announced on Wednesday Broadwell chips for desktops, which highlighted some big leaps in the chip architecture. Intel will reach new highs on the CPU core count, and Broadwell will support the new DDR4 form of memory. Intel did not address Broadwell chips for laptops.

    DDR4, smaller manufacturing process and more cores. Looking to be quite nice.
