Intel Core "Haswell" Processors Begin Shipping to OEMs

Intel reportedly began shipping its 4th generation Core processors, codenamed "Haswell," to its OEM partners (companies that sell pre-built PCs). These shipments could go into building the first batches of PCs running the chips, which will be launched alongside retail trims of the chips, in June 2013. In June, on the sidelines of Computex 2013, one of the biggest annual PC technology tradeshows, Intel is expected to launch its Core "Haswell" processors, various motherboard vendors are expected to launch compatible socket LGA1150 motherboards.

Among the Core "Haswell" chips Intel is expected to launch for the desktop platform, are the Core i7-4770K flagship quad-core part, and the Core i5-4670K, both of which feature unlocked base-clock multipliers, appealing to overclockers and PC enthusiasts. There are twelve other models on offer, with locked base-clock multipliers, a majority of which come in energy-efficient brand extensions such as -T and -S.Source: C|Net

well, assuming they spec it like the slides, you'll have 20*25A of power available through those iVRM's. I suppose that'll be more than enough for normal overclocking lols

Yeah, considering that per iVRM. I read nothing there saying CPUs won't have more than just one cell. ;)
It reads as if there are 20 cells in its entirety. So wouldn't that be a max output of something along the lines of factors larger than that?

Yeah, if you look closely at the pic with the VRM, you see 3 empty pads of the same size, and seemingly the same positioning. Was already wondering wether those would be for higher end models or something. However, it would be weird if they make the VRM's able to supply 2000Amps lol.

Edit: Unless they intend to bring out the core i1337 furnace edition ofc!

Edit 2: Found some new evidence suggesting the iVRM's are a real feature. They're talking about overclocking with haswell, stating: "programmable voltage via iVR". Interesting!

That's kinda cool, the 300A Celeron day's!! What's interisting is mine was on the Abit BX7 Rev2 and O/C'd at 928 Mhz
Using the Flip Chip 1 Ghz, netted a far more gain in performance.

Can you guess WHY ?
