    Intel is expected to launch its refreshed Core "Haswell" processor lineup in the second quarter of 2014 (between April and June), beating its Computex 2014 anticipated launch window. Motherboard vendors will launch their products based on Intel's new Z97 Express and H97 Express chipsets by the end of April. The products will have reached retail channels worldwide by May.

    Intel will release as many as 20 new SKUs spanning its Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, and Pentium brands, including the Core i7-4790, Core i5-4690, Core i5-4590, Core i3-4360, Pentium G3450, and Celeron G1840. Among the low-power SKUs are the Core i7-4790S, Core i5-4590S, and Core i3-4150T. The overclockers among you may want to hold out until Computex (June), because it's only then that Intel is expected to launch the Core i7-4790K and Core i5-4690K, which come with unlocked base-clock multipliers. These chips should be compatible with current socket LGA1150 motherboards, with a BIOS update. Intel's Core i7 "Haswell-E" HEDT platform could also launch around that time. Q2~Q3 promises to be a hectic time of the year for motherboard makers once again.

    Remember when the world ticked and tocked to intel processor refreshes ? and the average joes needed to buy a new laptop because 'office opens really slow' :)

    I can buy old cheap sandy hardware and it is still almost as fast as haswell. I like it.

    Most power users and lots of overclockers still run SB systems, 'cause Intel f* us all with IB and Haswell - insane thermals and bad overclockability.

    Besides Haswell is just ~10-15% faster in most tasks than SB, what's the point of throwing out your perfectly working motherboard to buy something which is only marginally faster?

    I will wait for Broadwell/Skylake or whatever's coming next (most likely DDR4 based).

    What is an unlocked base clock multiplier? Never heard it called that...ever.

    But SB is still so much more awesome than Haswell! If I had a 2600K or better, I wouldn't be remotely interested in the last few generations.

    got both, i use the 4770k daily while the 26k is now a htpc. its thermals make it better suited for that and the 47k has better ipc, supports faster ram, runs on the vastly superior z87 which makes everything faster.

    i do agree about the 2600k still being a very good cpu, but the z68/z77 platform is not in the same class as z87. it is the chipset which was the real reason why i feel upgrading to 1150 was worthwhile from 1155.



    back to topic.

    any solid news on if the refresh is going to support both ddr3 and 4, or will it be 4 (or 3) only?

    if amd keep bringin some poor performance cpu(not igpu power) there is no reason for intel to make some new stuff with big performance jump just lower the TDP and drop it on the market with new name

    bought a 2600k last week , oc'ed this badass to 4,7GHz. With H2O cooling i could go easely to 5GHz. The performance diff. over my old FX8320 is insanely huge.
    Intel has no rivals in the High-End market now, so they can decide how fast the next gen. CPUs will be.... and this sucks.

    All we can do is hope that VIA or ARM pull the tarp off a black project and it will be the cpu of cpus to put the rest of the cpus to shame.

    Never gonna happen but id definely invest in the company to float them to them to the top of the market and give them a fighting chance

    Weren't they supposed to move the power stuff back to the motherboard with this? Or was that with the next tick (or tock)?

    If they move it, z87 is still compatible - it has all the necessary stuff like VRM etc,. All that stuff floating around was just some rumor, never really confirmed by intel.



    Even intel CEO/Rep. said Broadwell will be compatible with existing systems and new systems ie Z97.

    Or like IB was compatible with a bios update @ P67 chipset.




    btw, no DDR4 for broadwell LGA1150, only for server variant.. But Haswell-E will apparently have it

    I'll stick with an overclocked i5-2500K :)
