DailyTech points out that newly leaked Intel roadmaps suggest that the chip giant has delayed its 14nm Broadwell processor in favor of a 22nm Haswell refresh in 2014 (and Haswell-E towards the end of the year).
Much has already been published about Ivy Bridge-E, but the VR-Zone piece deals with its architecture-refreshed successor, Haswell-E. The leaked slides seemingly confirm the timeline of the previous leak, indicating that Haswell-E chips won't be available until sometime late next year (H2 2014).
The leaked slides show the Haswell-E chips will (presumably) be Intel's first consumer octacore offering, packing a whopping sixteen threads. There will also be slightly cheaper hexacore (12-thread) variants. The cache will be bumped from 15 MB with Ivy Bridge-E to 20 MB in Haswell-E. Both releases will support up to four PCI-Express 3.0 graphics cards. But Haswell-E will add a neat trick, supporting the upcoming fourth generation double data rate memory, DDR4-2133. (Ivy Bridge-E bumps memory support to DDR3-1866.)
