Intel’s upcoming Core i7 Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) processors and accompanying motherboards based on the Intel X99 Express chipset are expected to launch on September 14, 2014. This is according to a leaked supply chain document acquired by VR-Zone.
The Core i7 Haswell-E series will effectively replace the current Core i7 Ivy Bridge-E series and its Intel X79 Express chipset. These new chips will be built for the new LGA2011-3 socket (not compatible with LGA2011) and will be the first consumer desktop platform to support DDR4 memory. The Haswell-E lineup is made up of the flagship Core i7-5960X, Core i7-4930K and the Core i7-5820K. We have detailed all three of these processors in our article here.
