The launch of Intel’s Ivy Bridge-E HEDT (High End Desktop) processors is just around the corner and the pre-order pricing for the chips have been revealed. These prices are actually a little bit higher than the pricing that was leaked back in July. It might be that because these are pre-orders the price is higher. Prices for the chips start at $342 and go all the way up to $1140.

We already know that Intel will be launching its Ivy Bridge-E HEDT platform on September 11, 2013 and now it is all set to Showcase SSD Overclocking at IDF13 San Francisco.

The latest Haswell pricing details by Intel have surfaced up. Intel has given final touches to the following: three new Core i3 parts, a mid range, Core i5 part, a high end Core i7 part and three Pentium parts.
ASUS has just announced a new motherboard in the Z87 Deluxe Quad. This is the world’s first motherboard certified by Intel with Thunderbolt 2 technology. This board has two Thunderbolt 2 ports which allow for 12 simultaneously connected devices. Each port is capable of up to a 20 Gbit/s transfer rate and is backwards compatible with the first generation of Thunderbolt.
Regardless of superior performance, Thunderbolt technology is not being taken up on mass scale by OEMs. For this particular reason, to make it more renowned amongst enthusiasts, Intel plans to introduce Thunderbolt PCIe expansion cards.
