At first, Intel was supposed to launch its next generation desktop CPU ‘Skylake’ within Q2, 2015. But now the chipmaking giant pushed its schedule back to August 2015, along with the 100 series chipset that will accompany the desktop CPU launch.The source came to know via Taiwan-based motherboard manufacturers. This would also affect shipping and production for Haswell-refresh and Broadwell-U based hardware. But it is said that companies will unveil 100-series motherboards in Computex 2015.
The delay for Skylake’s delay isn’t clear. While in such situations it is assumed that its due to productions issues, in this case, it could be to prevent overlapping between Skylake platform with its predecessor Haswell-Refresh.
