Fixed Core-Logic Sets for Intel Core “Haswell” Platforms to Become Available in July.

Intel Corp. has published a product change notification (PCN) document concerning its 8-series chipsets that will support Intel Core i “Haswell” central processing units (CPUs). According to the paper, the company has already fixed the previously discovered USB 3.0 issues and is currently preparing the new stepping of core-logic for mass production. Intel will be ready to ship the fixed version this Summer. (Industry, Intel, Next-Gen, PC, Tag Invalid, Tech)

Yea, AMD has given up trying to compete with Intel on the high end. Intel leads the world in lithography techniques.

Haswell is my next platform of choice, time to retire the old faithful LGA1366 Bloomfield!

LGA 1150 USB3.0, PCIe 3.0, TRIM in RAID 0....here I come.

Apparently about 10 percent faster per clock than current Ivy Bridge.

It isn't a massive leap over the 3770k but the performance improvement for me will be significant.

Is your mobo compatible with the Haswell chips?

@sourav93

I don't think so, isn't 1150 a new socket?

Sticking with my OCd 2500k & GTX 680 SLI until next year's releases, then I'll replace my Mobo, RAM, CPU, & GPUs.
Next console gen will have started gaining some real steam by then, & it'll give devs some slack to make PC games push the hardware further.

I'll stick with my 3930k @ 4.8ghz for at least 2 years. Doubt anything will get near maxing that baby out in that time period.

Im running an i7 950 so I will be upgrading, Im going to stick with my SLI 570's until 7XX cards release.

I still have my i7 920!

2600k still doing the job for me

these bastards are going to launch haswell with a bug on the motherboard so I wouldn't buy from the first batch. Another thing is that this upgrade is only beneficial to those that will buy laptops and run them with the integrated card because of the increased 3D capabilities for games and battery life. For PC gamers this upgrade is pointless.

Still have a first gen i7 920 and see little reason to upgrade, game benchmarks prove old i7's are still going strong compared to the newer chips. Will wait to see benchmarks but i'm not expecting much, maybe i'll wait and see what Broadwell is like.
wishingW3L  +   878d ago
yeah, when it comes to the CPU part the increase in performance is very little, the real boost comes from the 4600 HD chip but if you're a PC gamer then you'll probably be using a discrete card so there is no reason to upgrade. It's pointless.

Not pointless being that all asus mobo's combine the power of integrated graphics with discrete cards. The guys at Microcenter didn't even know that. I'm liked dudes it says it right here on the box.

Sticking with my OC 2500k and 2600K as Haswell is not a huge jump in performance but still 4 years better than anything AMD can produce.
