We have been hearing about Intel’s next-generation Haswell-E processors for some time now and they have finally arrived. For people running older HEDT (high-end desktop) systems it has been quite a while waiting around for an upgrade. The Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) lineup is at hand and it is made up three high end enthusiast processors, the Core i7-5960X, Core i7-5930K, and Core i7-5820K. Today we are going to be taking a look at the flagship processor of this group or as I call it the big daddy of the bunch, the Core i7-5960X. This extreme edition processor features 8 cores, 16 threads, 20 MB of L3 cache, a 40-lane PCI-Express root complex and DDR4 support. This will be Intel’s first 8-core desktop processor as well as the first consumer platform to support DDR4 memory, so it is a very exciting time for people looking to upgrade to the newest offering. The Core i7-5960X will have a base frequency of 3.0 GHz and a turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz. This processor is not for the faint of heart though; it has an MSRP of $999! ThinkComputers is excited to get this tough guy on the test bench and see what he can do!
We have been hearing many different rumors on Haswell-E pricing, but VideoCardz has revealed the pricing for Intel’s next-generation HEDT (high-end desktop) processors in leaked press slides that they have obtained.
Intel’s 4th Generation Core i7 HEDT (high-end desktop) processors codenamed “Haswell-E” along with the accompanying X99 chipset will be launched at the end of this week. With this launch we will see a whole slew of new motherboards and since this will be the first consumer platform to support DDR4 we will see many new DDR4 modules as well. Today we will be going over what we know about the upcoming processors, X99 chipset, new motherboards and DDR4 memory. If you are interested in the upcoming HEDT platform then this article should give you all of the information that you need.
Intel’s Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) processors and the X99 chipset are coming very soon. What is attractive about these processors is that they give you 40 PCI-Express lanes. Well that is true for the Core i7-5930K and the Core i7-5960X which both will have 40-lane PCI-Express 3.0 root complexes, but the entry-level Core i7-5820K will have a narrower 28-lane PCI-Express 3.0 root complex.
It has been revealed according to several sources that Intel is expected to launch its next-generation Core i7 HEDT (high-end desktop) processors, codenamed “Haswell-E” along with compatible motherboards based on the X99 Express chipset on August 29, 2014.
Intel is set to release their Haswell-E high-end desktop (HEDT) processors in the coming months. The lineup will include three processors of which the flagship is the 8-core, 16 thread Core i7-5960X. One of these processors has been recently de-lidded to reveal that it uses soldered TIM.
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.
