Intel Core i7-5960X “Haswell-E” Processor

Intel Core i7-5960X “Haswell-E” Processor Review

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!


Intel Haswell-E and X99 Chipset Preview

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 Roadmap Confirms X99 Chipset and DDR4

Many people have been wondering when we will see more high-end extreme enthusiast processors from Intel. The last Extreme processors Intel released were the LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E chips. We do know that we will see Ivy Bridge-E processors in Q3 2013, but it seems just a year after Ivy Bridge-E launches it will be replaced by the Haswell-E platform. Haswell-E will be compatible with the <a href="">X99 chipset</a> that we have been hearing about for a while now and will bring DDR4 to consumers.

Intel to Release X99 Chipset for High-End Desktops

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 <em>TweakTown</em> 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.
