It was assumed that the debut of Broadwell-K will be held in the second quarter of this year. However, the Italian resource Bitsandchips.it spread information that Intel is considering the possibility of failure of these output processors on the market. The reason for this decision – a mystery. Apparently, the Corporation intends to focus on standard processors for desktop Broadwell, as well as chips for desktop computers new generation Skylake-S, whose announcement is expected at the end of the second or early third quarter.
