Intel is getting ready to release their Haswell-E high-end desktop (HEDT) processors. Recent pricing on these enthusiast desktop parts has been leaked and is showing they are currently higher than their suggested retail price.
Intel’s upcoming Core i7 Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) processors and accompanying motherboards based on the Intel X99 Express chipset are expected to launch on September 14, 2014. This is according to a leaked supply chain document acquired by VR-Zone.
Intel’s next generation Core i7 “Haswell-E” HEDT (high-end desktop) processor lineup has been detailed. The lineup is set to launch later this year accompanied by the X99 Express chipset. Three new processors will be laucnhed that will effectively replace the current Core i7-4820K, i7-4930K and the i7-4960X.
The 4th generation Core i7 HEDT (high-end desktop) platform is soon going to be launched by Intel and this has been codenamed as Haswell-E. We can expect to see this being launched by the third quarter of 2014, which might be after June, making it almost a year from the Core i7 “Ivy Bridge-E” launch.
2014 is going to be a busy year for Intel. They have many different product lines scheduled to launch and one of them is their Haswell-E platform. VR-Zone has posted a photo of the first Haswell-E engineering sample. This engineering sample features 8 cores and a 3 GHz clock speed.
We will see Intel’s Core i7 “Ivy Bridge-E” series in about two months, but until then there seems to be a mysterious “Sandy Bridge-E” part listed on roadmaps on different retailers. The part is a Intel Core i7-3910K. We are pretty sure it is not a typo as the list you see below even mentions the S-spec code “SR0TN” which is not the same as the “SW0WR” S-spec code of the Core i7-3970X.
We have heard that Intel’s will be launching their upcoming Ivy Bridge-E HEDT (High-End-Desktop) platform in Q3 of this year. VR-Zone has confirmed this and that the launch of the new processors would take place between the 4-11 of September. A more exact date of the 9th was mentioned, but it is not official.
