post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I saw a news where it said that intel is going to release intel haswell refresh and broadwell in 2nd half of 2014 but this means that broadwell is 14nm?

Well, WIkipedia isn't always accurate on release dates but:

Intel billed the new facility as "the most advanced, high-volume manufacturing facility in the world," and said it would come on line in 2013.

On May 17, 2011, Intel announced a roadmap for 2014 that includes 14 nm transistors for their Xeon, Core, and Atom product lines.

This makes sense because it usually takes Intel about a year to get die-shrinks to market.

And this is confirmed by Xbit:

So worth waiting a 14nm unlocked i5 broadwell instead of buying a used 3770k delidded that makes 5 ghz?

Broadwell is expected to require a new motherboard even though it uses the same socket, or so it can be gleaned from this article:
