Intel's Chief Executive Officer, Brian Krzanich, said during a conference call with financial analysts and investors: "We have a lot going on, the ramp of Broadwell, the ramp of Skylake in the second half of next year". The Skylake-based processors will be the second lineup of processors based on Intel's 14nm process.

We don't know much about Intel's upcoming Skylake processors, but we should expect four x64 cores, a high-performance integrated graphics engine, and multiple special purpose accelerators. On top of that, we should expect DDR4 support, AVX 3.2 (512-bit instructions), SHA extensions (SHA-1 and SHA-256, secure hash algorithms), MPX (memory protection extensions), ADX (multi-precision add-carry instruction extensions) and other innovations.
