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.
Last week AMD announced their FX-9000 series processors, which included the FX-9590 and FX-9370. These processors made headlines and the FX-9590 was the first ever consumer processor to offer a 5 GHz speed. A couple of days later it was revealed that AMD would only be selling these chips to system integrators, but not that may not be the case as they have popped up for pre-order online.
According to tech reports, Intel have declared that over-clocking of Haswell processors will be only restricted to K-series chips. Well earlier, Intel was a bit moderate with the previous-generation “Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge” matching parts and did allow some room of over-clocking for non K processors but that too was for a limited time.
On Tuesday AMD made a huge announcement by launching the 5 GHz FX-9590 and 4.7 GHz FX-9370 processors. Of course after the announcement much raving ensued. It looks like anyone wanting to build a new PC with these new processors is out of luck. AMD will only be shipping these processors to system integrators and will not sell them through retail channels.
Well guys be prepared to use mobile phones and laptops running Android and Chrome OS using AMD chips under the cover. Sources tell us that the chip makers are designing processors for Android and Chrome OS. AMD will still be dedicated to windows machine, but they do plan to spread out to mobile industry in the near future.
Intel has come up with its latest low voltage CPUs which includes three models under the atom N2xxxx series. These are N2805. N2810, N2910 manufactured on 20nm technology. These three models have been added today to Intel’s official pricelist. Their names indicate that they are atoms but they are enlisted in the ULV Celeron M section. The top SKU includes four cores with no hyper-threading technology which probably means that they are based on the new valley view M core.
We have been wondering when we would see the official launch of Intel’s 4th Generation Haswell desktop processors. Intel has released an image on their social networks that reveals the nanoseconds left (3,337,200,000,000,000) till the launch of Haswell. Looking at when the images was posted, the launch will happen the first week of June during Computex in Taipei.
Prices for Intel’s upcoming “Haswell” desktop processors has been leaked by VR-Zone! These processors are rumored to be launching in June around the same time as Computex. Looking at the prices they are very similar to the Ivy Bridge processors which were released in April of 2012. The flagship chip, which is the Core i7-4770K will have a MSRP of $327. Read on to see the rest of the prices.
It looks like we are finally getting some information on the CPUs that will follow the upcoming “Haswell” processors. It is actually pretty strange that we know any information at all as “Haswell” chips are not even out yet. The codename for the new processors will be “Broadwell” and they will be released in the second quarter of 2014. These processors will rely on 9-series based Z97 and H97 chipsets.
A source close to Intel has revealed that the company has started shipping their upcoming “Haswell” processors to OEM’s (companies that sell pre-built systems). It looks like Haswell keeps on getting closer and closer and these shipments could be the first PCs created using the new chip. Intel is expected to make a statement about the launch of Haswell at the upcoming IDF Beijing conference next week.
