Intel announces delay in production of next-gen PC chip `Broadwell`
London: World`s biggest computer chip maker Intel has reportedly said that the production of its next-generation PC chip, Broadwell, will be delayed by a quarter.
Intel`s chief executive Brian Krzanich said that delay was due to a technical glitch.
According to the BBC, the Broadwell chips are expected to succeed the Intel`s Haswell line of processors, and are touted to be more power-efficient and faster.
Krzanich said that the company and its manufacturing partners have a strong desire to get Broadwell to the market but there is a small blip in the schedule.
The report said that the delay in the production comes amidst Intel`s slight fall in third quarter profits, hurt by slowing demand for personal computers with the advent of smartphones, tablets, and phablets.
