It seems that they have a problem that's going to put back the launch of the Haswell's successor by 3 months: BBC News - Intel to delay Broadwell PC chip production
IMO The new Broadwell chips will have to be a pretty special considering the improvements Haswell introduced this year.Intel, the world's biggest computer chip maker, has said the production of its next-generation PC chip, Broadwell, will be delayed by a quarter.Chief executive Brian Krzanich said the delay was due to a technical glitch.
The Broadwell chips are expected to succeed the firm's Haswell line of processors, and are touted to be more power-efficient and faster.
Intel is the leading PC chip-maker and its updated products typically spur on new laptop and desktop sales.
"We and our (manufacturing) partners have a strong desire to get Broadwell to the market," Mr Krzanich said. "This is a small blip in the schedule."

Intel do have a problem, AMD have dropped the ball massively and Intel can goof off, they have had slipping schedules on all their new gear and they don't really suffer from it, as they are still the only game in town when it comes to a nice mix of power and efficiency. The best thing Intel could do would be to invest a couple of billion in non voting shares of AMD to jumpstart them and get the game back on track.
