The launch of the much awaited Intel Haswell powered Notebooks is very near. DigiTimes has brought good news to many customers who were waiting to own an Intel Haswell powered Notebook after announcing that the Notebooks will be available in the market by the end of May. Users have been waiting for the Haswell powered Notebooks since a long time, and the fact that the laptops have already been shipped to retail outlets, assures them that they will be able to own one very soon.
Just yesterday Chinese retailers were listing Intel’s complete 4th Generation Haswell processor lineup for sale so it would not be long before we saw a review pop up. Even though Intel will be officially launching the processors on June 2nd there is already a complete review online. The guys over at ChinaDIY have taken the Core i7-4770K through the paces. Want to know how it performed? Read on as we take a look…
Intel is expected to announce their upcoming 4th Generation Core Haswell Processors at Computex in June, but that has not stopped Chinese retailer Taoboa from selling these processors early. You can find the Core i7-4770K, Core i7-4770, Core i5-4670K, Core i5-4570, Core i5-4430 up for sale there right now!
When it comes to the processors inside most mobile devices they are going to be ARM-based processors. Intel wants to change that with their next generation Atom chip codenamed Silvermont. These new SoC (System on Chip) processors are made using a 22nm manufacturing process, offer 3 times the performance and (in some cases) will use 5 times less power as current Atom core processors.
Whenever a new processors comes out we always want to see how far we can push it. Well for Haswell it looks like a handful of people have already got their hands on them and have been seeing what they can do. The guys over at OCaholic have spotted quite a few CPU-Z validations on Haswell chips, one in particular shows that the Core i7-4770K was overclocked to 7 GHz at 2.56V!
Last month we showed you a photo one of Intel’s upcoming flagship DZ87KLT-75K which was being show at IDF Beijing. As we said in that post Intel is getting out of the motherboard business, so with Intel’s upcoming release of the 4th Generation Core “Haswell” processors this could be the last time we see Intel motherboards. VR-Zone has dug up the information on 4 of Intel’s motherboards that will launch alongside the processors.
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.
