  1. Are there any spec. differences with these newer Haswells?

    Probably just refined the process a bit, higher clocks, lower temperatures, lower power consumption, probably nothing earth shattering but maybe a 1 - 5 percent difference in all of those is possible, which could make all the difference in the world for certain chip applications. What would be awesome is if they offered 6 core chips with no HT that slotted into socket 1150. They would have to disable HT to differentiate between the socket 1150 and 2011 6 core chips. I doubt it'll happen but it would be awesome if it did.

    If they did nobody will buy LGA2011
  4. Hopefully they'll be able to crank up the clockspeed of the top end Extreme Mobile Chip segment, higher than the existing Haswell 3940MX (3GHZ/3.9GHZ). AMD's Kaveri can't compete with the mobile segment as far as CPU power in concerned unless this time they finally make some mobile CPUs that can have a TDP higher than 35w like what Intel does, for high end laptops.
  5. I really wish AMD would take another stab at the desktop CPU market. I understand taking some time to get your ducks in a row, but I feel like they really aren't making any effort outside of the APU market, (aside from GPUs of course) and I would really like some processor competition again.
  6. It's too bad that these won't have DDR4 support. It would also be great if Intel made the switch back to solder instead of thermal paste so that they would last more than 3 years.
  7. Can't wait to see what they have for Haswell-E during computex. And it says to support DDR4.
  8. Come on Intel, split your line. Can we get 2 different products? i7 for increased efficiency at a similar performance, and an e7 for increased performance at a similar wattage (more cores?) Say 75w locked for e, and a reduction of power but similar speeds for i?Just a suggestion. I know which one I'd take.
  9. As has been mentioned in other places, you bet your last toffee intel has a
    6 core non E chip drawn out, 'just in case'. Perhaps a die devoid of igp,
    slightly lower clocks; 3 pent.G's as it were. who knows.

    Pretty much, plus pricing would a be problem because they would have to figure out where to slot it, probably around 400 to 450. I know that they wouldn't introduce a 6 core haswell on 1150, it would just be pretty neat if they did. But alas the world doesn't run on hopes and dreams :-/.
  11. There are two new Haswell Celerons available new egg. For $60 you get 2.9 ghz dual core with Hyperthreading enabled. But it has 2MB L2 cache vs 3MB on an i3. Has anyone seen benchmarks on this yet? I may want one. Ah, it was just bad advertising on new eggs part, I checking with Intel.
  12. word is they're also moving the Haswell E launch to Computex. that Octacore goodness :D
  13. 100 Hz more to each prosessor, so not much. So quite normal refress.We have to wait Broadwell until we see something different. Most porpably a little bit smaller power usage and a little bit worse overcloking capasity (smaller production node will cause it tall, in good and bad) So more or less refined version of Haswell.

    they did a long time ago, it's called LGA 2011. rumor is that Haswell E will have 8 cores and cost your $1000

    problem is, how to price such a product so someone would buy it? I mean, there is very little usage for a 6 core or 8 core chip with HT disabled. you'll likely be able to achieve the same results with an overclocked i7 for most usage scenarios since the fewer cores will let you hit higher clocks

    I don't see how they can right now. Until the bulldozer architecture runs its course and they come out with a new architecture, and we still have Excavator to go after Steamroller, I don't see how they can compete in the upper half of the desktop market. We're stuck with Bulldozer until at least 2015, and it;s pretty clear that Bulldozer can't compete with Intel in IPC, it can't even come close.
  17. Wish they would just make a desktop class gaming cpu, get rid of that internal gpu and increase the size of each core and still be 4 cores. Without the gpu they could add a third more power to each core and I would bet they would have a best seller on there hands.

    Lower power would be even better for the Surface Pro and competitors. Hopefully Microsoft slips them in like they have once already with the Pro 2
