The guys over at CPU world have stumped upon even more slides from Intel’s desktop roadmap. These slides shed more light on the Haswell mid-range lineup. Last week the Intel’s Haswell desktop processors launched and the initial offering consisted of Core i5 and i7 quad-core models. Now we know Intel will also be offering less expensive products like Core i3 and Pentium CPUs.
In the third quarter of 2013 Intel will be launching the next generation of Core i7 Extreme processors. These will include the Core i7-4820K, i7-4930K and i7-4960X. These of course will be based on the Ivy Bridge-E core.
Also in Q3 of 2013 Intel will be expanding their Haswell line with a Core i7-4771 chip as well as several Core i3 and Pentium microprocessors. We are not sure what differences the i7-4771 will have compared to the i7-4770. Core i3 is the mid-range from Intel and the new Haswell SKUs will be Core i3-4130, i3-4130 and i3-4340. These will effectively replace the i3-3240 and i3-3245. On the Pentium side Intel will be releasing the G3220, G3420, and G3430. With the launch of the new Core i3 and Pentium chips will come with a new H81 chipset.
The roadmap does not contain specifics for new processor SKUs for Q4 2013 and the first two quarters of 2014. It does let us know that Haswell Celeron processors will launch in Q1 of 2014. It also shows a Haswell refresh coming in Q2 2014 and the launch of the Z97 and H97 chipsets will come with that.
