So...Haswell is to be Released in June

source:

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Intel-Haswell-Ivy-Bridge-E-CPU,20590.html

should we expect the Sandy Bridge cpu laptops to have a major price drop in the near future?

i saw this the other day (Canada), but it's sold out already.

do you think this is as low as Sandy Bridge i7 gets?

  1. anyone?
  2. Nice name :)

    I dont see any price drops really for Sandy laptops.. they won't get any lower for a while
  3. Best answer
    I seriously doubt it
    Intel is not one for big price drops esp since they control so much of the market already
    Sandy chips did not drop in price compared to Ivy ones, in fact they got more expensive than the Ivy ones

    The mobile chips should actually come in April
    forgot the source
    FOr laptops, you're better off getting a a8 4500m or a10 4600m unless the intel comes with dedicated grpahics
  4. Nice find.

    Wait, an 84W TDP on the Core i5/i7's cant be right. The primary objective of Haswell was a power/performance upgrade over Ivy. So unless Intel have upped the performance beyond the expected 10-15%, how are they achieving that?

    I'm skeptical of this info, though it does look fairly legit.

    BTW, the new Richland APUs, which are tweaked Trinity APUs with an updated GPU architecture, are coming out in Q2.

    Its probably more form the imporved and beefed up graphics increasing the TDP
