My guess would be that the Haswell Refresh chips support DDR4 and probably fit in the Broadwell socket/boards. These may also be considered lower end chips if they stay dual and quad core since the new rumor for Broadwell is hexa and/or octa core for the i7s (not just the Es).

Intel fan no more after Ivy then Haswell: Focused on mobile, and carried their mobile features to the desktop. Now the crappy paste Ivy and later... AMD, beat Intel up, pl0x. Can't let them get complacent.

Nope, from all that i've heard, only haswell-E will be DDR4, refresh will be on the z97 chipset, afaik that only adds sata express.

Broadwell won't launch for desktops (thus there will be no soceted retail boards), and given the mobile focus, hexa/octa core broadwell is unlikely. DDR4 may be likely, though.

Skylake in 2015 has DDR4 for sure.

Last time I checked, Broadwell is supposed to be Haswell's 14nm refresh and is expected to come out around 2014Q2 which is exactly where this roadmap puts it. Not much of a surprise there, we've known about that for almost a year already.

There aren't any official words on whether or not Broadwell will have DDR4 but the DRAM industry certainly could use the bump.

Have you seen the latest AMD chip before commenting? AMD is far from beating Intel, in terms of pricing yes, other than that, no.

As someone who upgrades just for the fun of it every 9 months I am truly disappointed with Intel's Haswell product compared to the previous 3770K and 2500k etc, I can only hope that AMD come good with the FX9590 as Intel will not be getting my money anytime soon

looks like 2h 2014 haswell-e is where we will see the first DDR4 support. Broadwell will be mobile only which is why 2014 is seeing a haswell refresh only for desktop mainstream so 2014 will not bring ddr4 to mainstream desktop which means probably not on mobile either. So if you want ddr4 badly wait till faill 2014 and get an octa core haswell-e, that's what I'm doing. Quad channel ddr4 insane bandwidth.

mainstream and value desktop and mobile/ultrabook wont be ddr4 till 2015 with 14nm skylake. Possibly 2016 if intel is delaying solder only 14nm broadwell till 2015. If you can't wait there is a 1000 dollar haswell-e fall 2014 cpu waiting for you.

There is no reason to exclude DDR4 from a respin. If Intel feels like it, they can definitely do it. Ivy Bridge was supposed to be only a die shrink but Intel tinkered with a few things all over the CPU on top of beefing up the IGP and upgrading PCIe lanes to 3.0.

There is no point in putting a respin on the roadmap unless they intend to change a bunch of at least somewhat significant things in it. DDR4 is one such relatively minor thing they can add: hardly changes anything aside from the need to support higher clocks and latencies at lower voltages.

Yeah and the NSA are reading this, there's a man in the moon and Microsoft's run by the Illuminati.
