We haven’t heard that much about Intel’s HEDT (high end desktop) processors in a while. A new report from BenchLife suggest that Intel will be launching their flagship Broadwell-E HEDT processors in Q1 of 2016. The Broadwell-E platform is comprised of X99-based motherboards and 6-8 core processors.
Intel’s consumer product roadmap for the remainder of 2015 through the first half of 2016 has been leaked. First let’s start with Intel’s HEDT (High End Desktop) segment. Haswell-E will finally get its upgrade to the 14nm process in the form of Broadwell-E. Broadwell-E will start rolling out in Q1 of 2016. Naming has not been given on the roadmap, but we can expect these processors to be called the Core i7-6960X, Core i7-6930K, and the Core i7-6820K.
Intel has started to talk about the first details of their next-generation high-end desktop (HEDT) processors codenamed “Braodwell-E”. These Core i7 HEDT processors will be built in the existing LGA2011-3 package and will be compatible with current X99 motherboards (likely with a BIOS update).
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.
