Intel Confirms Haswell Will Launch on June 3rd at Computex

Maximum PC Staff

A countdown begins for geeks, by geeks.

We all knew it was coming this summer, but now we also know it will only be 3,337,200,000,000,000 more nanoseconds until Haswell officially launches . Our back-of-the-envelope calculations align this countdown with Computex 2013, a show we fully expect to be dominated by Intel powered machines showing off the new architecture.

Numerous leaks have confirmed most of the parts Maximum PC readers will want to keep an eye on, but here it is again for reference :

  • 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
  • Haswells focus on battery life and GPU performance might make this tough upgrade to justify for desktop users who’ve already made the leap to Ivy Bridge, but that’s just the way the industry is moving these days. If you’re on the hunt for a new laptop however, or if you are still a few core generations behind, you might want to mark June 3rd on your calendar.
