In a new roadmap is seems that Intel will focus a lot on Ultrabook and 2-in-1 devices. Intersting is Intels desktop efforts on 2014 for the Z97, which will be based...

If you mean by that we wont get proper gaming gear anymore, then perhaps it's time for Game Developers should properly code their games to get everything out of the PC without having to run at 30 fps at max settings.

As long as consoles exist, PC gamers will always be second rate.

The current Intel Haswell "Y" series already lasts longer than the ARM series and is far faster. Unfortunately, it is also far more expensive; that's where Bay Trail comes in.

PC gaming is on a rise but the overall market is declining. Where are my K series CPUs?

I was mostly referring on the overclocking and general CPU fun/experience we get with a unlocked K processors.

I guess someday we will have to embrace the change and the fact that Intel is moving on. It may even turn out for the better. No one knows. We will see.

+1 True. But consoles aren't going anywhere for now. Both consoles(PS3/Xbox360) sold over 150+Million combined since launch.


I wonder how many capable gaming Rigs are out there? And capable lets say a HD 7770/GTX 650ti as a minimum.

Real problem is no effective competition from AMD. For AMD to be considered 'competition', not only would they have to make something better than what Intel produce, but also have an great increase in the number of people buying them.

We have heard people talking about it but we managed to confirm it now. Intel will make Broadwell mobile only and it wonít make a desktop version like it used to before.

The desktop version of a new CPU is codenamed Haswell refresh, which gives you idea of what is coming from Intel on the desktop side. Haswell refresh is just a slightly improved and optimized Haswell, while Broadwell will hit tablets, convertibles, two-in-ones and the traditional notebook market. Intel spends a lot of time addressing this market, which has already fallen on hard times.

Our sources are telling us that Intel will do desktop chip every two years, which is a huge slow down from the current roadmap, making it much easier for AMD to grab some breathing space in the desktop segment.

This is definitely not great news for desktop enthusiasts. It will make things slower and boring on the desktop side but GPUs will still come out every year, making GPU updates for gamers look like a good way of boosting performance.

Skylake is the next Intel chip that is set to have a desktop version and it is a tock, a new architecture processor that can probably bring more performance than what you would expect from the Broadwell 14nm shrink. Skylake is 14nm and it is set to come at some point in 2015.

Typical non-desktop users wonít benefit much from new processor unless they use heavy video encoding and rendering and watching Full HD movies and even 4K movies wonít be much of a task in the future.

According to Intelís own figures, the average PC is now more than four years old, the PC market is mature and upgrade cycles are getting longer, which explains the shift to a two-year cycle in the desktop segment.

No source so I don't know if it's fully confirmed but it's interesting enough to post and then we'll see if Intel or other sources can confirm it.
