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 is continuing their Ivy Bridge purge as they have just announced plans to retire five more chips based on the Ivy Bridge architecture. These processors include the Core i3-3110M, i3-3120M, i3-3130M, i3-3217U, i3-3227U.
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 is expected to launch Skylake, which will be a completely new x86 microarchitecture at some point in 2015. Skylake will come after Broadwell and will be the “tock” in Intel’s tick-tock model. Skylake will be fabricated on the 14 nm process.
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.
When Intel launched their “Devil’s Canyon” processors last week they were exclusive to Intel 9-series motherboards. Well it looks like the chips are now supported on a large number of motherboards based on older 8-series chipsets (Z87, H87, B85, and H81), with a simple BIOS update from the manufacturer.
Intel has just announced their brand new “Devil’s Canyon” processors today. These processors are part of the Haswell Refresh which we saw most of the processors come last month. The “Devil’s Canyon” processors are a bit different as they are designed for gamers and overclockers and have new features not found in other Haswell Refresh processors. To that end we present our Devil’s Canyon preview, which should give you all of the information that you need to know about the Devils Canyon processors.
Intel recently launched its first Haswell Refresh processors, but it left out two enthusiasts chips from the bunch. These are the Core i7-4790K and the Core i5-4690K. These are not just multiplier-unlocked variants of the i7-4790 and the i5-4690 that Intel just launched. Both of these chips have been given an internal codename of “Devil’s Canyon” and the chips are made from high-performing dies binned out of the foundry, and placed on extra-durable packages with contact points that are designed for higher voltages.
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 has just released their Xeon E7 v2 processors for high performance computing (HPC) needs. These processors scale up to models that have 15 cores and 30 threads! The models in this series are part of the “Ivytown” series.
