Many people have been wondering when we will see more high-end extreme enthusiast processors from Intel. The last Extreme processors Intel released were the LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E chips. We do know that we will see Ivy Bridge-E processors in Q3 2013, but it seems just a year after Ivy Bridge-E launches it will be replaced by the Haswell-E platform. Haswell-E will be compatible with the X99 chipset that we have been hearing about for a while now and will bring DDR4 to consumers.
It looks like the Intel 4th Generation Core processors that were on sale over in China earlier this month were in fact real! With the Haswell launch less than a week away many retailers are stocked with the chip and one Japanese retailer took a few photos of the Core i7-4770K box. Read on to check them out!
We have been talking about Intel getting out of the desktop motherboard business for quite some time now, but they are going to be releasing a few desktop boards to go along with their upcoming Haswell processors. These could be the last Intel board we ever see! The guys over at eTeknix have done a lengthy preview of the Intel DZ87KLT-75K motherboard.
Intel has come up with its latest low voltage CPUs which includes three models under the atom N2xxxx series. These are N2805. N2810, N2910 manufactured on 20nm technology. These three models have been added today to Intel’s official pricelist. Their names indicate that they are atoms but they are enlisted in the ULV Celeron M section. The top SKU includes four cores with no hyper-threading technology which probably means that they are based on the new valley view M core.

I’m sure you have been hearing the reports about compatibility issues with Haswell desktop processors and certain power supplies. That is because Haswell processors have a new sleep state called C6 and C7. In these states the processor is nearly shut off, bringing down the power consumption. Intel’s laptop processors in the Haswell will have the same feature as well as better power effeciency. Intel has said that Haswell processsors offer 50% more battery life in laptops than did their “Ivy Bridge” predecessors did.
The new Intel Haswell i7-4770K processor has now been listed on eBay and has already sold for $600 which does not include shipping charges. The price doesn’t sound too unreasonable since in the past many other pre-released products that have been auctioned were in high figures.
