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 latest Intel PC Client Platform roadmap has been leaked, which shows the next several generations of processors from the company. Interesting that this roadmap goes from 2013 all the way through 2016. It shows us how Intel plans to launch the HEDT Skylake-E processors, the Skylake Refresh and Cannonlake, which will be based of a 10nm process design.
It looks like Intel is going all-in on their integrated graphics implementation on Skylake, which will leverage eDRAM caches. Intel says these chips will have up to 50% higher integrated graphics performance over Haswell.
Yesterday was AMD’s Investor Day presentation, led by CEO Lisa Su and CTO Mark Papermaster. One thing AMD really emphasized during the presentation was getting the CPU core design right. They announced that their “Zen” CPU core will offer a massive 40 percent increase in IPC (instructions per clock) or performance / clock over the existing “Excavator” CPU core.
Intel Corporation today announced the Intel Xeon processor E7-8800/4800 v3 product families, delivering accelerated business insight through real-time analytics and enhanced performance and reliability for mission-critical computing.
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.
Another AMD slide has been leaked showing how their upcoming “Zen” cores will work together in a quad core unit. When the Zen CPU core block diagram was leaked we talked about how it is a monolithic core design and what sets it apart from its predecessor.
We have been talking a lot about AMD’s upcoming Zen CPU core micro-architecture. We know that AMD is working on a 16-core APU and a 32-core Opteron processor using this architecture. This new core design will be a departure from its Bulldozer multicore module design and will be a monolithic core design. Zen will be much like “Stars”, which was the core design that AMD used in its Phenom series, except Zen will have a lot more horsepower!
Well that did not take long at all. Just the other day we were talking about rumors on two Intel Skylake processors and now the entire Skylake-S processor lineup has been leaked! These processors will power the next generation desktop platform which is based off the 100-series chipset.
As we get closer to the middle of the year many details about Intel’s upcoming Skylake microarchitecture are becoming clear. Today we have details on the upcoming Core i5-6600K and Core i7-6700K processors.
