Better late than never, maybe Intel has released their fifth-generation Core processor for the desktop. Is it the new performance king, a killer overclocking chip, or a product in need of a market?
This is the first time I can remember that PC gaming was mentioned at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) without me reminding an exec we existed.
Last month I sat in front of new Intel CEO, Brian Krzanich, as he held up ‘working’ Broadwell silicon on stage at the Intel Developer Forum.
The chip is built using a whole new production process that shrinks Haswell's 22nm transistors down to 14nm. That is tiny.
There have been rumours floating around for the last couple days that Intel is going to end the traditional socketed CPU once Haswell is out of the door.
