Intel's chief executive Brian Krzanich said that delay was due to a technical glitch.
According to the BBC, the Broadwell chips are expected to succeed the Intel's Haswell line of processors, and are touted to be more power-efficient and faster.
Krzanich said that the company and its manufacturing partners have a strong desire to get Broadwell to the market but there is a small blip in the schedule.
The report said that the delay in the production comes amidst Intel's slight fall in third quarter profits, hurt by slowing demand for personal computers with the advent of smartphones, tablets, and phablets.
