There are many possible reasons why Intel is delaying the arrival of the 14nm Broadwell, from a lack of competition to the slowing of the laptop market to simply wanting to sell more Haswell chips. Regardless of the cause, DigiTimes is reporting that we will not see the first Broadwell chips until the beginning of 2015 with the arrival of Celeron and Pentium branded chips. The first ones to be shipped will be to mobile system builders in the last quarter of this year, limited amounts of U- and Y-series models will be distributed to manufacturers to be sold at the beginning of 2015. That is a long way off, don't give up all hope but don't hold your breath.
"Intel's upcoming 14nm Broadwell-based processors were previously scheduled for mass production at the end of the first quarter for release in the third; however, sources from the upstream supply chain say the processors have recently been delayed and will not be available until the fourth quarter."

Ba-hum-bug. Besides getting
Ba-hum-bug. Besides getting a hard on about new die-shrinks pushing us ever closer to what may lie (if anything) after the post-silicon era, no interesting news is coming from Intel.
I’m more interested in what Sun is doing with SPARC and IBM with PowerPC than what Intel is doing with their mobile shift and iGPU everything plan.
This is probably going to be
This is probably going to be the most boring year in computer hardware. No new CPU’s and GPU releases have been pretty slow. I think we just killed Moore’s Law just because of economics.
Dam you ever increasing price of more transistor density!
That is ok. I am good with my
That is ok. I am good with my Ivy Bridge probably until skymont or something.
More and more Broadwell
More and more Broadwell delays. If intel is struggling this hard on 14nm it’s going to be ages before tsmc and glofo catch up
Struggling … or have no
Struggling … or have no reason to be marketing new CPUs and a new process?
Intel is not in the CPU
Intel is not in the CPU technology business, Intel is in the CPU technology milking business business! Do not expect Intel to be worried about being quick to fix their “process yeald” problems any time soon, without the fear of loosing market share dew to the competition, which for the desktop market is a non factor at the moment. 2015 for Celeron and Pentium branded chips, what about the core i series based chips, when will they be ready, maybe it will be just Haswell refreshes, until Intel is forced by more competition to produce a much improved product Tick-Tock again.
Maxwell + Broadwell +
Maxwell + Broadwell + unannounced corsair case = 2015 upgrade
Am I right fellas? 😉
No I have yet to see a good
No I have yet to see a good reason to replace my sandy bridge i5. I may very well upgrade my gpu but we will see.
