Of course, until there is no reliable evidence that Skylake will be able to offer better performance. However, most likely, this is exactly so. After all, as we have seen, Broadwell's design is largely limited and focused on energy efficiency, and Skylake, embodying the "so" phase, is being developed in a more traditional way for desktop systems. The only advantage of Broadwell, which is likely to remain in force after the release of Skylake for desktop systems, is a powerful Iris Pro graphics, which will not be available in 14-nm LGA-processors of the next generation. But how many are inclined to consider a product as flagship, standing out against the background of competitors only by a more productive integrated graphics core?
In other words, for enthusiasts seeking to achieve maximum productivity, Broadwell's acquisition makes little sense. Even if in practical tests this processor overtakes Haswell (which, by the way, is not a fact), in just two or three months, the performance crown will surely pass into other hands. On the next page, we'll talk about how the desktop Broadwell was in business.
