Intel has now introduced its new range of desktop processors with the new models of Ivy Bridge and Haswell. With this expansion of new processors, Intel seemingly wishes to spread out the availability of its processors to additional markets. The new Haswell processors include the variation of the Core i7.
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.
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.
Intel will be unveiling their next generation of High End Desktop (HEDT) processors named Ivy Bridge-E on September 11th. ChinaDIY seems to already have received their review sample of the Core i7-4930K processor and have snapped some photos. This is of course an engineering sample (ES). This new i7-4930K would effectively replace the Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E processor.
It is widely known that the six-core Sandy Bridge-E Core i7 processor was actually an eight-core Sandy Bridge-EP Xeon E5 that has two cores and outside QPI turned off. With the Ivy Bridge-E Core i7’s about to launch we wonder if the same holds true?
Intel is gearing up for the launch of their Core i7 “Ivy Bridge-E” high end desktop (HEDT) processors coming up in September. According to reports the Ivy Bridge-E lineup will consist of the Core i7-4960X, Core i7-4930K and the Core i7-4820K. These processors will fit current X79 motherboards with a simple BIOS update. VR-Zone has released the alleged prices of these processors when they come to market.
According to tech reports, Intel have declared that over-clocking of Haswell processors will be only restricted to K-series chips. Well earlier, Intel was a bit moderate with the previous-generation “Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge” matching parts and did allow some room of over-clocking for non K processors but that too was for a limited time.
Intel had by far one of the biggest booths this year at CES. This year’s CES was a big one for them as they announced more the 25 processors! Not only were they showing off their new processors they also had wireless and embedded technology on display. I also had time to sit down with Dan from Intel and he went over the new processors and what Intel plans for 2010.
In August, Intel introduced a new, less expensive line of processors using LGA 1156. This family so far consists of three processors, the i7 870, i7 860, and the i5 750. The i7 8xx processor is a slightly scaled-down version of the i7 9xx, the main difference being a new memory controller that supports only dual-channel memory. But it really isn’t quite that simple, the LGA 1156 processors have taken on several tasks that were performed by the NB, allowing the motherboard chipset and hopefully the motherboards themselves to be less expensive. Today I will be looking at the entry level LGA 1156 i7, the Core i7 860. I am anxious to see the differences between it and the i7 920, which I reviewed in the early part of this year. Will this new Core i7 impress me as much as the earlier one did? Read on to see!
CoolJag has heard your outcry for some decent mATX cooling, and released the Falcon II, a low profile copper/aluminum cooler with a 120mm fan. Marketed towards the HTPC crowd, it will work great for a high-end mATX rig. CoolJag has been been around for over two decades, and have been building PC cooling solutions since 2001, so they definitely know what they are doing. CoolJag is a leader in “skiving”, a heatsink design technology utilized in this cooler. Find out more about the Falcon II in the following pages!
