what the hell? the wccftech writer got gen 9 graphics and sata express from a xeon slide? the so called leak doesn't even have nda notice at the bottom, looks photoshpped.
so far, pcie has followed a 5 year refresh cycle. pcie 3.0 launched in 2012, so pcie 4.0 should come out in 2016-17.

I like that the 14nm Knight's Landing PHI, will bring 3X the TFLOPs and 3X-4X the GFLOPs/W of todays 22nm PHI

Yep, the "tic" bump to 14nm starts with Broadwell in 2015. The "tock" bump Skylake, with an architecture change, would come about a year later

For desktop, maybe but servers always get stuff before we do. Haswell-E is rumored to have DDR4 which I would expect since it is designed for high end servers and workstations.

I guess only time will tell. But I also heard that SATA Express was to come with Broadwell, the 14nm refresh of Haswell.

It could also be a trick for the WCCFTech writer to get views to generate ad revenue but a lot of Intels rumors tend to be somewhat true.

None of this should be a surprise to anyone, really. SATA Express is out with the 9-series next year, Haswell-E/EP get DDR4 support next year, Skylake being a new u-arch gets AVX3, already present in Knights Corner today i believe (could be wrong about this last thing).


Yeah but that IS listed under 2016 (PCIe 4, Skylake), and this is likely talking about Skylake-E/EP stuff, so it seems valid. Mainstream will likely get it with Skymont.


You sort of are, because that slide's talking about Skylake-EP, which would come about a year after Skylake mainstream.


True. Most of this data co-relates with what i know about Skylake (DDR4, AVX 3).


Yes, and it shows Haswell in 2014, which means it's talking about Haswell-EP, which is used with the large Xeons. Haswell-E is likely to get DDR4 (there was a VR Zone leak a while ago), so this looks accurate.

Well by 2016 we hopefully have some 4K displays at "cheap" 1500$ to 2000$ so we need a hefty upgrade to GPU power, so it may actually be so that we allso need to have faster PCI-E. Allso some fast SSD cards can reguire more speed in 3 years...
Ofcource it can be allso a overkill, but we are talking about enterprice solutions in these dias so fast RAID based SSD can raturate PCI-E channels guite quickly.

I am guessing that some of those features (specifically PCIe4) will be coming out on Skylake-E and EP, but not mainstream Skylake. I will probably be looking at getting a Skymont setup in 2016-17. Not for the CPU upgrade, but for the chipset features mentioned.

PCIe 4.0 hasn't even been finalized yet and prolly won't be till 2014. After that then you have to design ur chipset otherwise you risk incompatibilities...

Is that roadmap correct? It says Haswell is 2014, Broadwell 2015, etc. Haswell is 2013 (and we have it now), Broadwell is 2014, Skylake is 2015, etc. Ok, that's for the Xeon linieup, I know, but shouldn't it be called Ivy Bridge-E/EP, Haswell E-EP, etc.? I hope this doesn't mean future Intel chips are all pushed a year later. Of course, that's just fine with me so that AMD can catch up a little bit.
 


Hey now, as both a PC gamer and console gamer (PS3 and soon-to-be PS4 which is on pre-order), I take offense to that.

Read the comments some time.

This is about the -E/EP parts.
