Leaked Intel Roadmap Reveals New Batch of Haswell Chips

Paul Lilly

Faster Haswell parts are on the way

Intel's Haswell architecture hasn't been on the market all that long, but such is the advance of technology that something newer, better, and faster is always right around the corner. In this case, it's still Haswell we're talking about, but according to a leaked roadmap , Intel is getting ready to refresh its Haswell family with a few new chips in the third quarter of 2013, including two that fall into the company's "Premium Performance" category and one that's an "Extreme" part.

The three chips in question include:

  • Core i7 4960X (6 cores, 12 threads, 3.6GHz base, 4GHz Turbo, 15MB cache, 130W TDP)
  • Core i7 4930K (6 cores, 12 threads, 3.4GHz base, 3.9GHz Turbo, 12MB cache, 130W TDP)
  • Core i7 4920K (4 cores, 8 threads, 3.7GHz base, 3.9GHz Turbo, 10MB cache, 130W TDP)

As previous roadmaps have shown, Intel appears to be targeting the second quarter of 2014 for a Haswell platform refresh, perhaps indicating that the Santa Clara chip maker will skip over the 14nm Broadwell architecture on the desktop except for BGA chips.

Speaking of which, Intel also revealed a handful of BGA processors, including three Haswell parts (Corei i7 4770R, Core i7 4670R, and Core i7 4570R) and three BayTrail processors (Pentinum JR2850, Celeron J1850, and Celeron J1750).
