Intel has started shipping its next generation Broadwell chip but is delaying shipments of its Skylake chip.
According to MacRumors, the 14-nanometer Broadwell chips are expected to be included in the Retina MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and iMac.
It is claimed that Broadwell will consume 30% less power compared to its predecessors, without compromising on the performance.
Before starting commercial production, the chip maker had shipped a sample of its new chips to hardware partners.
Intel chief executive Brian Krzanich was quoted by PC World saying: "Skylake was always scheduled to ship during 2015, so any slip wouldn't officially qualify as a delay.
"Actually, we are shipping products to partners and customers. Intel's hardware partners will have Broadwell systems on store shelves by the holiday season, consistent with its earlier timetable."
Intel is yet to ship Cherry Trail, which will be used for tablets scheduled for volume shipment in 2015, which will be followed by Atom chip Broxton and Skylake.
