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.
While most companies are showcasing DDR4 memory at Computex ADATA actually has theirs running in a system! It looks like ADATA has teamed up with ASRock and is using one of their X99 prototype motherboards.
It looks like everyone is showing off their X99 motherboards at Computex! ASRock was not only showing just one board, but two boards actually and even revealed which board they were, which are the X99 Extreme 6 and the X99 Extreme 4.
Well it looks like EVGA is not the only one showing an X99 motherboard at Computex 2014. MSI has their upcoming X99 motherboard prototype on display at their booth. X99 motherboards will launch later this year with Intel’s Haswell-E high-end desktop (HEDT) platform.
While many people said we would not see any X99 motherboards at Computex it looks like they were wrong! EVGA is showing off their X99 Motherboard prototype at their booth at Computex 2014 and it sure is a beast! X99 motherboards will launch later this year with Intel’s Haswell-E HEDT platform later this year.
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.
It looks like the features for the 9-Series chipsets from Intel have been finalized. Leaked slides from Hermitage Akihabara show us some of the main features for the upcoming Z97 and X99 chipsets from Intel.
Based on a leaked Intel roadmap, you would be really surprised to know that Intel Broadwell won’t be launching in 2014. Instead it’s the Haswell (Haswell-E server part on X99 chipset, Ivy Bridge E, the six cores LGA2011 CPU on the chipset X79) which will be launching later this year with undefined performance characteristics.
As the year goes on we keep expecting a Haswell CPU series release from Intel. Most people expect this to happen around Computex time (June 4-8). With Haswell it is already been speculated that the platform will be called Z87 and will be the mid-range solution. This is old news and something that we have have known for quite some time. According to TweakTown the next generation of performance range CPU’s will be coming by the end of the year and not in 2014 as many people thought.
