It has been reported that Intel has delayed the launch of its next-generation “Skylake” desktop CPUs to August 2015. This is from its normal release schedule of launching a new CPU each Q2 of each year. Skylake is Intel’s next-generation CPU architecture that is built on the companies 14 nm silicon fab process.
Skylake is to reportedly to launch with its companion 10-series chipset that will launch a whole slew of new motherboards. Because of the delay many motherboard manufacturers may not be able to show their latest motherboards at this years Computex trade show in June, where new motherboards are a big focus. Intel is either waiting for the market to digest current inventories of products or is tweaking production of its new chips.
