    2013 promises to be another year, with another new line of processors by Intel, and like every alternate year, the company will introduce a new client desktop CPU socket. With its 4th generation Core "Haswell" processor family, Intel will introduce a brand new CPU architecture that steps up IPC over current Core "Ivy Bridge," hence, Intel's Core desktop processor lineup will not ship with higher clock speeds, yet higher performance. The new chips will be built in the LGA1150 package, and will be accompanied by Intel's 8-series "Lynx Point" chipset.

    By Q2-2013, Intel will have launched as many as 14 Core desktop CPU models, including six in the mainline, and eight power-optimized ones. Its nomenclature is somewhat similar to that of current Core "Ivy Bridge" lineup, except the 4000-series numbering. Leading the pack is the Core i7-4770K (unlocked) and i7-4770, clocked at 3.50 GHz with 3.90 GHz Turbo Boost, featuring eight threads with HyperThreading, 8 MB of L3 cache, Intel HD Graphics 4600 iGPU clocked up to 1250 MHz, with 84W TDP; followed by Core i5-4670K (unlocked) and i5-4670 clocked at 3.40 GHz with 3.80 GHz Turbo Boost, and 6 MB L3 cache. The Core i5-4570 and i5-4430 are clocked at 3.20 GHz (3.60 GHz Turbo) and 3.00 GHz (3.20 Turbo).

    Intel's mainline Core desktop processor lineup is overshadowed by as many as eight energy-efficient processor models. The Core i7/i5 "S" series reduce TDP to 65W while maintaining clock speeds, while Core i7/i5 "T" series reduce TDP to 45W, with a little help from lower clock speeds.

    I am SO glad I waited and Stayed with My 2500k(instead of Upgrading to W/ Ivy Bridge), Now I Can Sort of Reasonably justify My upgrading to a 4670k with out feeling TOO bad.

    They have core i7s with a lower TDP than my venice (I think) Athlon64 3000+ (single core).

    I need to get a job....

    Check out the 4765T. Full spec in a 35w package.

    hmm 84w TDP well that places it under 95w and would be extention mean Haswell would use TIM instead of solder but I could be wrong.

    Impressive work on the TDP.

    Fantastic, I might upgrade to this and skip Ivy

    Argh just building a new i7 2600k and already 2 generations behind -_-

    With no AMD releases in sight, these are going to be so expensive.

    Nah, even if AMD doesn't release any competing products soon after, Haswell will not be such an extreme increase in CPU performance that it won't have to compete with Intel's other CPUs. The fact is that Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge are fast enough for almost all purposes, and Intel would not endanger possible upgrades with exorbitant prices...hopefully.

    It would have of been nice if they kept the same TDP as ivy and increased the clock speeds instead.

    Seems cool. Thinking my 2500K will last for a good, long while though, especially at 4.5GHz. Sandy Bridge CPUs have got to have another 2 years of life in it, easy (Current owners. Intel will probably kill off 155 with 1150's release).

    I was thinking about getting a 3770k when they get cheap... You can get a 2500k for $100... I don't know, haswell looks tempting.

    But Ivy Bridge has a TDP of 77w, just pointing out. On the other hand I take performance improvement any day. I might just hop on the i7-4770 or i7-4770K all coz of the IGP improvement, other than that i guess clock for clock CPU wise Ivy & Haswell are dead even on paper.

    I like my 3770K, and compared to my 2600K at an equivalent speed, it uses 20-50w less electricity which is amazing. I wanted to hold out until Haswell, but my 2600K system is still used 24/7 anyway so it doesn't really matter that I upgraded now instead of a year from now.

    Intel usually if a CPU has a TDP under 95w will use TIM under the IHS vs Solder

    this means that at 84w the Chip using 22nm and 3D transistors will run hot just as Ivy does,

    where as Sandy being 95w and using solder ran 20'C cooler by comparison, granted if the performance gain is worthwhile and it can clock roughly the same no big deal but right now it seems if you want more performance and cooler running CPUs socket 2011 which will continue to use solder will be the better bet from the looks to bad Haswell for HEDT platform will be a ways off as Ivy still hasnt hit 2011 yet.

    if Haswell uses Solder it could be a damn good clocker on top of the IPC improvement.

    meh, to be honest its not the cpu aspect but the iGPU that i'm interested in. This HD Graphics 4600. Intel does keep getting better and better, and with more money than AMD and Nvidia combined to spend on improving and manufacturing them lower nodes/manu tech compared to the competition, i figure its just a matter of time till Intel is right there beside AMD and Nvidia, i give it 2016-2018.

    I guess no-one here stopped to think that the TDP increase might have something to do with the new GPU rather than any major difference in the CPU part. Considering that they've put a larger GPU in these chips, I'd expect that to be what caused the TDP increase rather than anything else.

    The GPU? I'd look to the VRM integration first.

    It only integrates the VRM controller, not the VRM itself (for uniform new-spec VRD compliance). The VRM IC logic should barely add to the TDP.

    I knew it's gonna be too soon, but I still expected HD5000 a little bit. Well, it's still nice that they keep improving the already awesome SB/IV lineup, even if there is no TDP decrease this time (not on paper at least, and perhaps it's the new GPU indeed as how TheLostSwede suggested).

    Still only 4 cores for the mainstream...:rolleyes:

    Thanks AMD, thanks for being so useless as to provide Intel with absolutely no reason whatsoever to push 6 cores into the mainstream in 2013.

    Thanks AMD...:rolleyes:

    That's weird. Makes it essentially a far more minor change than people were anticipating. So much for the promise of cheaper small boards.
