With its 22 nm "Ivy Bridge" CPU and 7-series "Panther Point" platform turning into a reality, Intel is moving on to development of the new 22 nm "Haswell" architecture. Entry-thru-performance segment Core "Haswell" processors will be built on the new LGA1150 package, and will be driven by a new series of platform controller hubs, codenamed "Lynx Point". We already know a tiny bit about the way Haswell+Lynx Point platform is structured, and the features that could come standard with it. A new VR-Zone report lists out all the chipset models Intel will carve out using the silicon.

Still wondering what "Hotham 1.0" is...

That would be Hot McHam...a delicious meat based product with real pork.

Ivy is just out and here - new platform, new CPu after less than 3Qs - is it smart from Intel to PR his next at this point? I mean - if I had Sandy system and they would give away Ivys for free - I would be to lazy to switch them now - I would wait for Haswell that little time

Ivy is not a real product, they just allow you to share some of the developement costs for the next gen.

Why in the first slide, it shows that Lynx Point uses PCI-E Gen 2.0 when the next slide for the Haswell architecture shows it utilizes PCI-E 3.0? I'm confused here :confused:

I think they are slides from 2 different presentations. The original Lynx Point one that says 2.0 I swear I saw at some point last year, and the other one appears to be newer, and says it supports 3.0. Intel probably assumed it would use PCI-express 2.0 since 3.0 didn't really have any hardware that needed it. Not with the 6xx and 7xxx series out using PCI-express 3.0, they've amended it.

Well you have to remember that while IVB isn't appealing for desktop users it is a massive improvement for mobile computing, a 35W TDP quad core isn't a small feat! Especially with such high IPC.

On another note I wonder how many PCIe lanes will Haswell have, I think that Intel should step up from 16 on the mainstream platform.

I'm glad they'll put more sata 6 Gb/s ports.

Same here. Nothing worth to change for right now... Q9650 still works as it should.
