    Did the new rMBP get broadwell or not? 9 to 5 Mac says yes. Others say no. If not, will apple go straight to Skylake?

    Pretty much. Wouldn't make a lot of sense for then to change the board layout for the the MBP twice in a year.

    Nope. They're still Haswell.

    I think it's evident from this that Broadwell-H has been entirely scuttled, considering that it would have such a short shelf life since Skylake-H is on time.

    whoa, this paragraph on 9 to 5 Mac almost made me pull the trigger on an order.

    While the upgrade to the latest Broadwell processor doesn’t show a speed-bump, Apple says that the flash storage is 2.5 times faster and greater power efficiency provides an extra hour of battery-life …

    Knowing how inefficient AMD chips are compared to NVIDIA's, I'd wager that Radeongate will happen in 3 years' time.

    Take your blinkers off yjchua95. It was one bad product.

    They changed it to "Intel Iris Pro" from "Intel Iris Pro 5200" in the marketing materials. Had it actually been broadwell, I would have expected it to say "Intel Iris Pro 6200."
