Intel announces the new Broadwell Quad-core, which would have been ideal for the MacBook Pro

MacRumors

Today, during the Computex 2015, Intel made a series of announcements. Among the interesting elements for Mac, such as Thunderbolt 3, we saw the presentation of three i7 quad-core processors ideal for the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina . But I’m afraid that the recent update of the same (not focused on the processors) take away all hope for the WWDC to be held next Monday.

These i7 processors are, i7-5950HQ at 2.9 Ghz, i7-5850HQ at 2.7 Ghz and i7-5750HQ at 2.5 Ghz , all three have the Iris 6200 graphics chipset integrated. These are the processors that should have carried the 15″ MacBook Pro renewal released by Apple a month ago, which maintain the same Haswell series. Apple couldn’t wait that long.

Although they have been presented today, Intel has announced an availability of the same ones of 30-60 days, reason why we could be presented in August or September , when the first teams began to see themselves mounting these processors. What we could see at WWDC ’15 is a renewal of the Mac Pro range, which is already in its infancy. The processors (which won’t be these, of course) are ready, Thunderbolt 3 too and it’s a developer’s conference, fingers crossed.
