It is not recently found out during Game Developers’ Conference that Intel will be releasing 14nm fab-based Broadwell chips by mid-2015. These chips most likely would encourage hardware and overclocking enthusiasts since these are unlocked processors. Furthermore, Broadwell desktop CPUs are said to feature Iris Pro graphics, along with 65w TDP.
All things considered, Broadwell could very well help to encourage PC builders go for a miniITX or mATX form factor systems. This will also encourage mini PC makers to have attractive form factors as well, along with good enough (though we don’t know how “good” is the iris/ iris pro) graphics.
There would also be an NUC (Next Unit of Computing) variants as well, with 28watt consumption rate along with Iris graphics. This is speculated to arrive by next month.
