Although a number of technical reasons Intel Corporation and had to stay with the entry of a new family of processors Broadwell, in particular, because frankly small percentage of valid dies, it does not apply to family Skylake, which will be issued in strict accordance with the plans of Intel. Bulk supply of micro-processors that will begin in the second half of 2015. As stated in his interview with financial analysts and investors Krzhanich Brian (Brian Krzanich), Chief Executive Officer, “we declare that this will be the second half of this year and do not want hitches because the new processors will bring many new innovations and open up new opportunities for market. “
Indeed, the platform based on chips Skylake, will bring to the market a lot of new technologies: for example, the “hundredth” series chipsets, Intel will introduce native support interface SATA Express. A new mobile platform will support wireless charging interface WiGiG and other tehngologii that find their application in the plates, devices of class “two-in-one” and laptops. Among other things, Skylake withdraw from the shadow memory type DDR4, the lot which is now rare and expensive platform Haswell-E.
Of course, the simultaneous coexistence of market platforms Broadwell and Skylake complicate life partners Intel, but it seems that the corporation believes that the introduction of new technologies is more important to ensure market stability. And, of course, users will have more freedom of choice. Given the fact that both types of processors using the same 14-nanometer process technology for Intel is not difficult to switch from production Skylake on Broadwell and back. As the representative of the company, “is enough to change a piece of glass in the scanner – and you get a different product.”
