after a significant delay due to problems in production...
It was only delayed by 1 quarter to Q1 2014. Considering that the last few architectures were launched in Q2 including Haswell having been launched in Q2 2013 less than a year ago, it would seem that they're still a quarter ahead of their usual schedule. I wouldn't really call that a significant delay.
I don't expect this will be very eventful in the single CPU space. Probably just a small speed increase like Haswell, although power consumption may be reduced even further. The next interesting launch will probably be Broadwell-E (not expecting too much of Haswell-E), as they'll probably take full advantage of the 14nm manufacturing process for more cores than ever.
