Intel is going to have a busy fourth quarter of 2014.

According to a new roadmap obtained by VR-Zone, Intel is planning on launching its Broadwell-K CPU in Q4 2014 which will take the company through most of 2015.

It is not yet known if non-K versions of the chip will also be launched.

This chip would be based on the LGA 1150 socket, but as discussed before, may not be compatible with older 1150 motherboards because of a change to Intel’s power specifications for the socket. These new requirements involve a slightly different power supply for VCCST, as well as a V_PROC_IO for 1.05V, and a new chip topology that requires a modified THRMTRIP output buffer.

Intel’s new 9-series of chips will bring a selection of new features such as support for high-speed SATA drives with 6Gb/s throughput, updated rapid storage technology as well as manageability and security features.

In a recent earnings call, Intel’s CEO blamed “yield problems” with its new 14-nanometer production process for delaying Broadwell.
