Next CPUs for Most Macs Not Shipping Until Early- to Mid-2015 →
Broadwell’s delay gets worse:
As a result, the Broadwell U 2+3 dual-core chips with GT3 (HD 5000 or Iris) graphics, likely slated for use in the MacBook Air and the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, won’t be ready to ship until February of 2015. The Broadwell H 4+3e quad-core chips with Iris Pro graphics designed for the larger Retina MacBook Pro and iMac won’t be shipping until July 2015 at the earliest.
Pretty bad news if you’re waiting for the next MacBook Pro or iMac updates. Or if you predicted that Retina iMacs would ship in 2014.
(I was conflicted about linking to what appears to be a three-level-deep rewrite, but MacRumors was the only site to put the CPU models in context of Mac model lines, so they did add enough value.)
