The Intel Westlake processors are finally here, and they’re bringing an abundance of improvements to desktop computing, gaming, and the like.
But it’s not all smooth sailing.
Let’s explore the key differences between these processors, what they do and how to get them.
Intel’s Westlake CPUs are the successor to the Broadwell-E processors that debuted in 2014, the first generation of the Haswell architecture.
Broadwell was the successor of the previous-generation Core i5-6200U and Core i7-7500U chips.
Broadfield chips are much smaller than Haswell chips, and Intel has designed the cores for the Haskell operating system.
So the Broadlake CPUs feature an improved design, better integrated graphics, and a lot of other improvements.
There’s also a new processor architecture called “Xeon.”
The new architecture offers more cores than its predecessor, which is great news for desktop gaming, as it allows the CPUs to run a lot more intensive code on the same amount of cores.
Intel says that the new cores are significantly faster than the previous generation.
We’ve covered Broadwell and the Broadfield architecture, so we’ll skip over that and focus on the new Xeon.
As the name implies, the Xeon cores are based on the x86 instruction set, which has an instruction set that’s roughly a third the size of the x64 instruction set.
The Broadwell CPU architecture had a lot to do with the improvements to performance that Intel has made.
Broadlake has been Intel’s fastest-selling processor since its launch in 2011, with Broadwell chips hitting the market in 2015.
But Broadwell wasn’t Intel’s only chip to hit the market, and it didn’t exactly have a high market share.
Broadcom’s Z87 chipset is a popular choice for laptops and desktop computers.
Intel also released its own laptop chipset called the Skylake-SP, which it had used for its previous Skylake processors.
That chipset is based on a completely different instruction set than the Broadcom Skylake chips.
So Intel has redesigned its chipset to make it work with Skylake CPUs, and Skylake is the fastest of the new chipsets.
But there are still differences between the new Broadwell architecture and the Skylayers Broadwell family.
Intel has also made some improvements to the way it processes graphics on the Xeons and Skylays.
The new processors also feature more cores and an improved graphics architecture.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) is essentially the processor inside the computer that is responsible for rendering graphics to the screen.
A graphics processor can run any video card, including NVIDIA’s Quadro cards and AMD’s Radeon cards.
Intel is targeting both mainstream and ultra-high-end graphics hardware for these new chips.
These new chips offer better performance and better graphics at a higher price point.
Intel used to offer four graphics chipsets, including the SkyLake-SP.
These graphics chipset chips are still available on the market.
However, there are no new Broadlake chipsets on the way.
Instead, Intel has announced new chips that feature three graphics chips.
That’s a good sign, but it means that the market is already saturated and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future.
Intel hopes that these new CPUs will replace the Broadpool-based chipsets that were released in the past few years.
These are the chips that are typically used by gamers and professionals.
The Skylake processor family will have the highest performance of any Intel CPUs to date.
Broadpool was the first to feature an Intel Haswell-EP instruction set processor, and Broadwell has been the fastest-performing of the last three generations of the chipsets since their launch.
So Broadwell is really about performance and power efficiency.
But how does it compare to the previous generations?
Broadlake is a slightly different architecture than Broadwell, and there are some key differences in how the chips operate.
Broadstream is a little faster, but not as much.
The CPU core speed is a lot higher than Broadlake, so Broadlake tends to be slightly faster than Broadstream.
However the Broadstream chipsets are also considerably smaller than Broadfield.
Broadland is the successor, and that’s a big difference.
Broadlands Broadwell CPUs are smaller than Skylake.
The larger Skylake chip is about the size, or a little larger, of a desktop CPU.
Broadlands are also a little more expensive than Skylanes, but they’re also much more efficient.
Intel estimates that Broadland CPUs will be about $20 to $30 per core.
Broadcore is a bit cheaper.
Broadclades chipsets tend to have a smaller price tag than Broadlands.
The prices for Broadland chipsets start at $60 and up, and then go up.
For Broadlake and Broadlake-EP chips, the prices for the Broadlades are $70 to $80 per
