Hmmm, I was hoping Broadwell around September and Haswell-E just before Christmas. I should know better.

I thought "ticks" were die shrinks and "tocks" were microarchitecture changes, since "tick" is a smaller sound, and "TOCK" is bigger.

Good catch, I wrote that out backwards. But yes, ticks are die shrinks, tocks are new microarchitectures.

Ivy Bridge = Tick, Haswell = Tock, Broadwell = Tick, Skylake = Tock.

Haswell update: the clock is stuttering.
