Intel’s been on the warpath recently with their CPU launches, having just completed the Haswell refresh along with a new 9-series LGA1150 chipset, with the Devil’s Canyon family still to come as well as the new LGA2011-3 socket and the X99 chipset with DDR4 memory. With such a tight schedule this year, it’s beginning to take a strain on their future plans. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced today at the Maker Faire in San Mateo, California that their new Broadwell processors, due to ship on the 14-nanometer production process, are still on schedule but delayed slightly.
“I can guarantee for holiday, and not at the last second of holiday,” Krzanich said to Reuters. “Back to school – that’s a tight one. Back to school you have to really have it on-shelf in July, August. That’s going to be tough.”
