Intel Core "Haswell" Delayed till Computex 2013, No Show at CES

It looks like Intel's Core "Haswell" processor family will miss its anticipated March-May launch window, with the company choosing Computex 2013 as its next launch-pad. According to a leaked document intended for distributors and large retailers, desktop Core "Haswell" processors will launch only after May 27, before June 7, and retailers are told to hold off advertising the launch till June 2nd.

Among the products featuring in the new May 27 - June 7 launch window are the Core i7-4770K flagship product, i7-4770, i7-4770S, i7-4770T, i7-4765T, i5-4670K, i5-4670, i5-4670S, i5-4670T, i5-4570, i5-4570S, i5-4570T, i5-4430, and i5-4430S, all of which are quad-core parts. In addition, socket LGA1150 motherboards based on Intel Z87 (flagship, OC-ready), H87, Q87, Q85, and B85 chipsets, will be launched. In all likelihood, one piece of decoration the CES venue could miss, is the wall of LGA1150 motherboards, which is usually put up by Intel.
There could still be the odd unexpected LGA1150 motherboard backroom-disclosure by manufacturers, but those could be at early stages of development. Given that Intel plans to launch its platform towards the beginning of Computex, CeBIT (March 2013) is a more probable venue for Intel's wall of motherboards.

Moving on to the mobile processors front, the launch window is unchanged from that of the desktop parts, but fewer models will be launched, which are mostly high-end. Among the parts launched will be Core i7-4930MX, i7-4900MQ, i7-4800MQ, i7-4702HQ, i7-4702MQ, i7-4700HQ, and i7-4700MQ; accompanied by Intel QM87, HM87, and HM86 chipsets.Source: VR-Zone

Depends what you are using them for. If gaming would catch up with technology we would be utilizing these new cpu's on both the AMD and Intel side. With heavy multithreading involved the i7 3820 can barely keep even with the 8350. Yet in certain games the 8350 is barely a match for the i3's. I personally would love to see Haswell mop the floor with both Intel and AMD alike it needs to for Intel's stronghold in the heavily multithreaded server industry to stay put as of right now it is diminishing quickly. At the same time I would love more games like Metro 2033 to come out that actually use all the freaking cores available.

The engine that runs Metro 2033 is actually really god damn impressive. People seem to think the game is "poorly optimized" because it is taxing as all hell, but the opposite is true, Metro 2033 may very well be one of the most well optimized games (when it comes to utilizing CPU's at least) on the market. Threading is--and always has been--a contentious topic. I think AMD is trying to push for more heavily threaded applications the only way they know how, beating Intel in those situations in a cost-effective manner.

It is a beautiful game. Maxed out my GTX 470's running 3840x1050 with NV surround as well as the Phenom II@4.2ghz. I have not seen very many game load the system down like that I was thoroughly impressed.
