Even though the thermal paste is barely dry on Intel’s new Haswell CPU microarchitecture , its performance-oriented Ivy Bridge-E processors are due to be launched soon, and now we finally have some pricing info. According to VR-Zone , we’ll be seeing three Core i7 Ivy Bridge-E CPUs debuting around Q3 this year, including the 4820K, 4930K, and 4960X. Here are the leaked specifications of the CPUs:
These socket 2011 CPUs look as if they will sport only marginally higher clock speeds than their Sandy-Bridge-E counterparts, and will also carry the same amount of cache and TDP rating.
Ivy Bridge-E is expected to arrive Q3 ‘13, and will be followed by Haswell-E in the second half of 2014. If you want to hear our thoughts on Ivy Bridge-E check out episode #201 of the No BS Podcast .
