Intel’s delays are likely to have a knock-on effect on Apple’s own release cycle
Much of the success of the Apple’s Mac range can be attributed rightly to the Intel Haswell chips which are known to be the most powerful of their kind. The Macbooks in particular have greatly benefitted from them with significant battery life increases. We were looking forward to the next generation Broadwell chips which were expected to come out on Macs this year but seems like this wouldn’t be the case because due to some delays, we could be waiting until the middle of next year. A new report has emerged and it indicates that these Broadwell chips are not going to get into production until later on this year. Because at the moment, the company is paying more attention to the Core M range which is exclusively designed for lower budget devices.
We would suggest that all those who had been waiting for these next gen Broadwell chips should stop waiting and purchase their Macbook because as opposed to what the CEO announced about the chips coming this holiday season, we wont be getting any till next year. There is no doubt that waiting would also be worth it because the new chips are significantly going to increase the performance.
We are wondering if this delay by Intel is going to have any delays in Apple’s own product cycles and we had been hearing that Apple was going to roll out Retina MacBook Air and an upgraded Mac mini but it seems like all this is going to have to wait for a bit longer.
