Broadwell comes at a very weird time for consumers as well. We have heard that Intel could be launching their Skylake processors and 100 Series chipset at Gamescom in August. Skylake will be the “tock” in Intel’s release schedule. So consumers could get Broadwell with a 9 Series motherboard or just wait a little bit for a Skylake processor with a 100 Series board. Having just a few months between launches does not give a lot of time for Intel to really push Broadwell or even get it out into the channel. As of writing this it is quite hard to find Broadwell Desktop processors at major online retailers. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship processor in the Broadwell desktop processor line, the i7-5775C. This quad-core processor has a base CPU frequency of 3.3 GHz with a turbo boost up to 3.7 GHz. While this might be slower than the 4770K it achieves this with far less power and has much more powerful integrated graphics.
SilverStone had their Petite Series of super-compact NUC cases on display at Computex. The PT20 is the enclosure made for Intel’s Core Broadwell equipped NUC boards. While the case looks aluminum, it is actually made of SECC steel. It has official dimensions of 125 mm x 50 mm x 110 mm (WxHxD) and features a 2.5-inch hard drive bay and two from cutouts for USB 3.0 ports.
Intel Corporation today announced it has augmented its 5th generation Intel Core processor family. The company unveiled 10 desktop and mobile processors that boast new levels of performance, including Intel Iris Pro graphics on an Intel desktop processor in the LGA form factor for the first time. The flagship desktop processor, Intel Core i7-5775-C, delivers up to 35 percent better media performance and over 2x better graphics performance than the previous 4th gen 65-watt Intel Core i7-4790S with Intel HD graphics 4600 desktop processor.
ECS has just announced their brand new flagship LIVA mini PC model, the LIVA Core. The new LIVA core features an Intel Broadwell Core M 14nm processor, Intel 802.11ac WiFi, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of M.2 SSD storage and more.
It has been reported that Intel will officially launch their Broadwell desktop processors on June 2nd 2015. These include the Core i7-5775C and Core i5-5675C. The June 2nd launch date makes the launch just in time for Computex 2015, which kicks off that day.
The first Intel Broadwell Core i7-5775C has been spotted and aggressively overclocked as well. Remember the Broadwell desktop chips have a very low TDP of only 65W, which made many of us think that they had quite a lot of overclocking potential, which it turns out to be very true.
After a very long wait it looks like Intel has finally started shipping its first Core i5 and Core i7 Broadwell desktop CPUs to OEMs. Many of these OEMs are offering PCs featuring the Core i5-5675C and Core i7-5775C.
It looks like Intel will only be launching two socketed LGA1150 Broadwell parts in June. Typically we see a full refresh, but this is not the case with Broadwell. It could be because Intel has large Core Haswell inventories that they still need to get rid of, that Broadwell could be to short of a stopgap between Haswell and Skylake, or BGA chips becoming more commonplace.
