Intel Broadwell-K unable to meet 65W TDP envelope?

eTeknix stumbled upon news that Intel's 14nm Broadwell-K processor is suffering from overheating issues. The site claims the CPU was originally meant to have a 65W TDP but that Intel has been unable to reach that. Instead, the rage has reportedly been revised to 88W and even as high as 95W on the higher-end models.
A 90-95W TDP isn’t really an issue in itself and something no overclocker would have any problem with, although there isn’t any doubt that everyone wants it as low as possible. The really bad news is the rumoured complete removal of the Broadwell-K series by Intel executives – at least initially. It might simply not be economically possible to bring it to the market at this point.

So, to summarize the above: Broadwell-K is running too hot for the 65W TDP and will most likely come with a 90W TDP, that is if it doesn’t get canceled altogether, as rumoured. A third third option would be a delay on the release date of the K models. However, that could collide with the 140W TDP Broadwell-E scheduled for Q1 2016. I am sure we’ll find out a lot more very soon because those release dates are moving closer each and every day.
