We have been wondering when we would see the official launch of Intel’s 4th Generation Haswell desktop processors. Intel has released an image on their social networks that reveals the nanoseconds left (3,337,200,000,000,000) till the launch of Haswell. Looking at when the images was posted, the launch will happen the first week of June during Computex in Taipei.
Prices for Intel’s upcoming “Haswell” desktop processors has been leaked by VR-Zone! These processors are rumored to be launching in June around the same time as Computex. Looking at the prices they are very similar to the Ivy Bridge processors which were released in April of 2012. The flagship chip, which is the Core i7-4770K will have a MSRP of $327. Read on to see the rest of the prices.
It looks like we are finally getting some information on the CPUs that will follow the upcoming “Haswell” processors. It is actually pretty strange that we know any information at all as “Haswell” chips are not even out yet. The codename for the new processors will be “Broadwell” and they will be released in the second quarter of 2014. These processors will rely on 9-series based Z97 and H97 chipsets.
Normally you do not hear much about Intel’s own motherboard line. This is due to the fact that it really is not all that impressive and companies like ASUS and Gigabyte market their products a whole lot better. Intel has already announced it is going to back out of the consumer motherboard business, but that has not stopped them from creating boards for the upcoming “Haswell” platform. Below you see their DZ87KL-75K, which is their top enthusiast board for the upcoming Haswell Z87 Lynx Point platform.
At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) that is currently underway in Beijing, Intel has announced the second-generation Thunderbolt specification. It uses the same plug and pin design as current Thunderbolt devices, but offers double the bandwidth over its predecessor. This will give devices 20 Gb/s of bandwidth, which gives users the ability to transfer uncompressed 4K Ultra-HD video without causing the display to lag.
A source close to Intel has revealed that the company has started shipping their upcoming “Haswell” processors to OEM’s (companies that sell pre-built systems). It looks like Haswell keeps on getting closer and closer and these shipments could be the first PCs created using the new chip. Intel is expected to make a statement about the launch of Haswell at the upcoming IDF Beijing conference next week.
MSI has launched a new Mini PC in their Wind Box DC110. This Mini PC is powered by an Intel Celeron 847 dual core 1.1GHz processor, Intel HD graphics, and 2GB of DDR 1333MHz memory with the option to install up to 4GB. As far as storage and connectivity goes you have a 320GB hard drive, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, HDMI, VGA, 4x USB ports, Ethernet, line out and optical audio out.
As the year goes on we keep expecting a Haswell CPU series release from Intel. Most people expect this to happen around Computex time (June 4-8). With Haswell it is already been speculated that the platform will be called Z87 and will be the mid-range solution. This is old news and something that we have have known for quite some time. According to TweakTown the next generation of performance range CPU’s will be coming by the end of the year and not in 2014 as many people thought.
ASUS today announced a new range of microATX motherboards with onboard HDMI and DVI ports for Intel and AMD processors with integrated graphics, and USB 3.0 ports with performance-enhancing ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology. By removing the need for a discrete graphics card, the new motherboards provide a more affordable option for home entertainment PCs that can fully exploit high-performance USB 3.0 storage. The latest Intel 22nm CPUs feature Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics, while AMD Socket FM2Athlon and A-Series APUshave integrated AMD HD 7000 Series discrete-level Radeon GPUs.The processors provide excellent 2D and 3D graphics performance, without the need for a separate graphics card, which in turn results in lower PC build costs.
Intel Corporation announced today the Intel Solid-State Drive 525 Series (Intel SSD 525 Series) in a small mSATA form factor with 6-gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) performance. The Intel SSD 525 Series gives OEM customers, channel and tech enthusiasts an ultra-portable, low-power storage solution in one-eighth the space of a traditional 2.5-inch hard disk drive (HDD) to drive innovative Ultrabook, tablet and embedded applications.
