Leaked Intel Roadmap Shows Skylake and Cannonlake Plans Into 2016

A roadmap concerning Intel's Skylake plans has recently leaked, and while the roadmap starts from back in 2013, it carries us into next year. We're nearing the end of the Haswell series, obviously, with Broadwell desktop CPUs expected to arrive on June 2. The Broadwell processors are already here on the M, U, and Y series, but then Skylake will replace those right around the start of quarter four this year. The M processors will stay with Skylake until the very end of 2016, when Cannonlake arrives, but the U and Y series will get the Cannonlake replacements in quarter two of 2016. That doesn't give those series a long time on Skylake, but Cannonlake is expected to be 10nm, so reducing the power consumption makes sense with those.

Moving back to the desktop side, the Skylake processors figure to arrive this September, with the Core i5-6500K and Core i7-6700K leading the pack. Those two will be 95W models, but the Skylake series will have 65W and even 35W models. Next year, during the third quarter of 2016, the Skylake processors will receive a refresh, much like the Haswells did, and maybe even a Devil's Canyon-style refresh. On the high-end side, the Haswell-E series will continue a little while longer, with the Skylake-E chips not expected until the third quarter of 2016. It isn't known what motherboard chipset or even socket those will use, but considering the Skylakes are moving to Z170 and LGA 1151, the Skylake-Es will probably move to something else, too. We'll just have to wait and see what those bring, but first, people have the traditional Skylake CPUs to look forward to.

Intel has plenty in the works for the desktop and mobile side for processors, and I imagine many people are planning some upgrades when Skylake arrives in the next few months.
