Intel is expected to launch the next generation 9-Series chipset on May 11th which will include the latest Haswell refresh processors and various Z97 and H97 motherboards from different companies. It looks like MSI’s entire Z97 Gaming Motherboard line has been leaked.
Intel is planning on introducing their Haswell refresh platform next month in April. The new platform is expect to be a slight tweak of the existing Haswell processor family, with most processors getting a 100 MHz boost. VR-Zone has confirmed that the K-Series Haswell refresh processors would feature updated overclocking features and an improved TIM design.
Intel will be launching their Haswell refresh in about a month. The refresh will be compatible with the next generation 9-Series chipset compatible H97 and Z97 motherboards. HardwareLuxx got a first look at MSI’s upcoming Z97 motherboard prototypes at an NDA briefing.
Intel’s Haswell refresh is coming very soon and the SKU list as well as pricing have been listed online. This list is for the non-K variants, so for all the overclockers out there you are going to have to wait just a little longer for information on those chips.
We have been hearing a lot of rumors that Intel’s upcoming 14nm Broadwell generation of CPUs are going to be delayed. They had been on track to launch in Q3 of 2014, but that might not be happening. First off the M Series and desktop parts will not be delayed at all, but the Y, U and H Series will be delayed.
As expected Intel is planning to launch their Haswell refresh processor lineup in Q2 of 2014. Nothing really new is being added to the architecture except clock speed improvements. VR-Zone has revealed the full Core i7 Haswell refresh lineup and starts with the Core i7-4790 leading the way.
Our friends over at VR-Zone have revealed some very interesting details about the upcoming Intel Haswell refresh and Intel Broadwell platforms. The report shows that the new processors coming out of these platforms would only be compatible with new revised 9-series chipset motherboards.
The guys over at CPU world have stumped upon even more slides from Intel’s desktop roadmap. These slides shed more light on the Haswell mid-range lineup. Last week the Intel’s Haswell desktop processors launched and the initial offering consisted of Core i5 and i7 quad-core models. Now we know Intel will also be offering less expensive products like Core i3 and Pentium CPUs.
