We shouldn't expect Broadwell until sometime in 2015, so we have a while to wait yet. Intel's upcoming 14nm process will power most of this advancement, with the 18-core Broadwell-EP or EX Xeon chip being based on the shrunken tech. We should expect an 8- or 10-core part for the desktop/workstation market, while a 12- or 16-core part will reach the enterprise market.
