First Look at Intel's Haswell Processor Pricing

Paul Lilly

Some vendors are already offering Haswell parts for pre-order.

We're still about three months away from retail availability for Intel's upcoming Haswell platform, and that assumes there won't be any last minute delays or chipset SNAFUS like the one that plagued Sandy Bridge's debut. Nevertheless, some anxious vendors have already begun accepting pre-orders for Haswell, giving us an early glimpse into how the pricing will shake out this summer.

CPU World spotted the pre-order pricing in a pair of Dutch shops, as well as a U.S. vendor, PC Super Store . Here's how the U.S. pricing breaks down:

  • Intel Core i5 4430: $197.86
  • Intel Core i5 4570: $213.69
  • Intel Core i5 4570S: $205.78
  • Intel Core i5 4670: $236.30
  • Intel core i5 4670K: $256.65
  • Intel Core i7 4770: $328.67
  • Intel Core i7 4770K: $368.07
  • Intel Core i7 4770S: $320.80

Compared to Ivy Bridge counterparts at the same store, pricing premiums for Haswell range from nothing at all to 13 percent higher. It will be interesting to see how prices settle once more vendors start to list Haswell parts.
