Intel's 14nm processors announced at IDF in Shenzhen
The IDF took place in Shenzhen today and Intel made a brief announcement regarding its 14nm successor to its budget 22nm Bay Trail processors. This has been dubbed as the Braswell which is going to be the SoC architecture and is there to aim at the Chrome OS and Android devices which fall under the affordable category. Apart from this, it is also going to complement Broadwell which was announced last year in Septmber and it falls under the higher end category. However, no details have been provided as yet as to whether this will be available for these two 14nm, 64-bit lines.
We had also heard that the production had been halted for the Broadwell and we might see some delays. But the shipment seems to be scheduled for the second quarter of this year. If you are hoping for the fanless Core i7 systems then the wait for these might be longer than we are expecting.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
