What is the name of Intel’s Broadwell+3 architecture and chip family? Damn good question and thanks to SemiAccurate you won’t have to wait until 2017 or 2018 to find out.
You might recall when we brought you the name of the Broadwell+2 architecture in 2013. Yes we got the spelling wrong but the rest was right, one letter off for being first is something we will take any day. Remember how close we were with Avadon/Abadon/Avoton? This time we took a few more weeks to get the spelling right even after we verified the name verbally.
So for those into Intel code names, things go Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Cannonlake, and then it doesn’t go Skymont or Pelican Lake. Really. Once again SemiAccurate brings you the exclusive name….
