One generation every two years, that's Intel next plan for desktop CPUs
This is close to what intel's production few years ago before the first release of the intel core ix processors, the blue company said to concentrate on mobile processors, that mean desktop enthusiasts will wait until 2015 to their 14nm Skylake chip
Skylake is the next Intel chip that is set to have a desktop version and it is a tock, a new architecture processor that can probably bring more performance than what you would expect from the Broadwell 14nm shrink. Skylake is 14nm and it is set to come at some point in 2015.
Typical non-desktop users won’t benefit much from new processor unless they use heavy video encoding and rendering and watching Full HD movies and even 4K movies won’t be much of a task in the future.
According to Intel’s own figures, the average PC is now more than four years old, the PC market is mature and upgrade cycles are getting longer, which explains the shift to a two-year cycle in the desktop segment.
