Intel CEO Brian Krzanich spoke at the Maker Faire in San Mateo, California, on Saturday and promised that the next-generation Broadwell processors will ship in time to be used in personal computers sold during the holiday season.
The 14nm Broadwell processor plans have been subject to delays due to technical setbacks.
Krzanich also spoke about the explosion in popularity of wearable tech saying that successful wearables will come from makers who are focussed upon solving their own needs and thus there won't be a single device which is right for everyone. The smartwatches and fitness bands introduced by rivals in the last few months show that such accessories aren't taking off. So the Intel CEO wants to mine the maker movement for inspiration.
