Windows 7: Intel says Broadwell processors will be available for holidays

Intel says Broadwell processors will be available for holidays

Intel's latest PC chips, code-named Broadwell, have been a long time coming -- and apparently we'll be waiting a little longer for them, according to recent comments from the company's CEO.

Brian Krzanich told Reuters over the weekend that the new processors, which will be built using the 14nm manufacturing process, should start shipping in new computers by the holiday shopping season. That timeline is a little more specific than the "second half of 2014" guidance we've been receiving from the chip giant, even if it's later than hoped for.

The good news is that the Broadwell rollout could boost end-of-year PC sales, but it might mark a blow for back-to-school shopping, especially if consumers decide to hold off making purchases while waiting for Intel's latest and greatest to arrive.
