Intel's Skylake desktop processors could be delayed until August

With each new iteration of computing products, we generally see improvements in specifications and technology. This is possible thanks to new innovations being created by chip manufacturers. While there are several players in the CPU world, Intel is by far one of the largest and most recognized. Unfortunately, it looks like there could be a delay in Intel's next processor being dubbed internally as 'Skylake'.

According to DigiTimes, Intel has delayed the release of their latest chipset codenamed Skylake. Although there is no major manufacturing issue with the chip, it is being reported that the cause of delay is to minimize the overlap of its current products out on the market. The new Skylake processor will debut at 14nm with a later revision that could shrink the size to 10nm.

The processor was originally scheduled to make its debut sometime in Q2 of 2015. The reported delay will be a couple months, with the sources only stating that it could come in August. As always, take this information with a grain of salt as nothing has been confirmed by Intel. But, if history is any indicator, we wouldn't be surprised if the delay panned out to be true.
