Broadwell is the codename for Intel's 2014 CPU successor to Haswell. Broadwell boasts a 14nm die shrink, uses an MCP package design, offers new instruction set extensions, and is expected to offer improvements to the performance-per-Watt and much better integrated graphics support. Open-source hardware enablement of Broadwell has been happening within Linux for some time in hopes of providing appropriate launch-day Broadwell Linux support.
