Yesterday DigiTimes wrote that Intel has postponed the availability of its 14nm Broadwell processors to Q4 2014 and now the site claims the Haswell Refresh platform will arrive in April, one month earlier than anticipated. The Haswell Refresh is expected to feature more than 20 new processors.
Some of the makers are worried that the earlier launch of Haswell Refresh will disrupt their plans to clear Haswell inventories and develop Haswell Refresh models in the second quarter, although Haswell Refresh is compatible with Haswell, the sources said. The launch of 9-series chipsets in May as originally scheduled will render Taiwan-based makers unable to begin development of DIY motherboards based on Haswell Refresh and 9-series chipsets earlier in April, the sources indicated.

Intel is expected to launch more than 20 Haswell Refresh models in the second quarter of 2014 and Haswell K and E series in the third quarter, the sources noted.
