Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said during the Maker Faire in San Mateo, California, over the weekend that the new Broadwell chips will be ready by the holidays. Intel hopes to begin shipping the new Broadwell-based CPUs to OEMs so that they can get them baked into their systems for the holidays. We were originally meant to have Broadwell CPUs much earlier, but Intel delayed it earlier in the year due to production delays.
