From TweakTown:

According to a leaked roadmap from Intel, we have some interesting new CPUs coming soon (NASDAQ:INTC)

We aren't even half way through the year but we're hearing about what Intel will be releasing in the second half of 2016, according to a new leaked roadmap from the chipmaker.

Intel is expected to launch the Skylake architecture during Computex 2015 next month, something that will include the flagship Core i7-6700K processor. But what about 2016? Well, we are looking at Intel moving into their first 10nm processors with the new Cannonlake architecture, which should be an extremely low-power CPU, something that is going to really take flight in Ultrabooks. The mobile parts will come out in 10nm first, with desktop CPUs made on the 10nm arriving sometime in 2017.

Moving onto the HEDT side of things, Intel will release its next-gen High-End Desktop processor in Q3 2016 in the form of Skylake-E. Before that, we should expect Broadwell-E in Q1 2016, which will work on the current LGA 2011-3 socket. The new Skylake-E architecture will launch sometime in the second half of 2016.

--------

Skylake-E in 2016. Does this mean we will have 8 core CPUs for the masses? (In every HEDT generation they were adding moar cores either to their $1K product or to their $500 product. Last time it was their $1K product (aka 5960X)...)

Skylake-E already next year? I didn't expect it before 2017. I gotta start saving money for upgrades. =/

Are you going for the possible $500 8-core?

I think my CPU should keep me going until 2018. Especially with DX12 coming

Edit: I'm sure the itch will kick in before then though. FML

Well with DX12, CPU future in PC gaming is somewhat complicated.

If they decide to just grab the extra performance, even a dual core Pentium wouldn't have a problem running games where i7 was needed.

But if they take advantange of more power and add more eye candy???

Devs with DX12 could be like:

It would be silly for a brand new API not not use all resourses available so I'm sure It'll do both.

Looks like next year we'll see a nice boost in performance from CPUs and GPUs. Next year is gonna be a good time to upgrade.

If it is released in 2017 then yes... At least I want to. However I have my eyes set on SLI/Crossfire set-up, as I need more GPU power before CPU power. And that upgrade will come in 2016, hence why I won't have money for a CPU upgrade.

On the other with DX12 soon released, and hopefully games will use it as well, that will leave me with a doable CPU for a few more years. Perhaps a delidd in order to lower the temperature and perhaps increase the OC.

Maybe these new CPUs will get me to upgrade my old 2500k?

So Skylake slated for release in Q3 2015? Maybe you guys have been around here longer and know more about these sorts of things, but would it be realistic to hope for Skylake to be released by July 2015? Waiting for it to release before I examine build options, but I'd like to be able to play with it a bit and actually play some games before college starts in late August.

Skylake might be released earlier than we think...

@Coseniath: All the better than! Will certainly be a "small" upgrade over my current Core 2 Duo E8500.

And the bigger news, looks like AMD and Intel will be on the same node, for the first time in like forever, next year on the Desktop market.

AMD Zen on 14nm and Skylake Refresh on 14nm.

Lol, not forever...

Intel and AMD were always on the same node up til Sandy Bridge vs Bulldozer. Both were at 32nm.
