Intel confirms Broadwell LGA 14 nm for desktop PCs

Intel has been on the 2015 GDC games conference being held in San Francisco and announced that people have been certainly expecting a good portion of users: the launch of the new Broadwell LGA 14 nm processing platform or what is the pretty much the same, the socket format for desktops.

Intel has already sold several versions of the new Broadwell models, the convertibles Core M, the Core U Notebooks, AIO or mini-PCs, and vPro for professional machines. However, these 14 nanometer chips have not yet come to computer desktops in socket format that users can buy and attach to their plates.

The announcement of the Broadwell LGA 14 nm for “mid-year” points to a launch at Computex in June, the must-see event in Taiwan that Intel used preferentially along with January CES to launch their products.

The desktop Broadwell will be marketed in the S, T and K variant and -good news- they will be compatible with the chipset of the series 8 and 9 under LGA-1150 socket allowing users to retain their current motherboards, supporting the new micros just with a simple BIOS update.

The dual and quad core processing models would be available with ‘K’ variants with unlocked multiplier for easy overclocking. The integrated graphics chosen for the top models would be an Iris Pro 6200 which would avoid buying dedicated graphics for part of the users who have the game on PC as a residual function or for execution thereof with less resolution and frames.

Is not provided many details except consumption TDP running from 28-65 watts depending on the model.
