Report: Intel to Launch Two New Dual-Core Haswell CPUs in Q3

By - Source: CPU World | B 14 comments

The Celeron 2955U and Core i5-4200H Haswell CPUs reportedly will feature dual-cores, clock rates of 1.4 GHz and 2.8 GHz, respectively, and will be launched in September 2013.

According to CPU World, Intel has 20 different dual-core Haswell processors in the pipeline that range from the Celeron 2900 to the Core i7 series. Unconfirmed technical specifications have surfaced for two of these upcoming CPUs: the Celeron 2955U and the Core i5-4200H.

Though the Celeron 2955U SoC is clocked at 1.4 GHz (the same frequency as the fastest mobile Celeron SKU on the market), the Celeron 1047U should offer 10 percent better performance due to improvements in Haswell’s microarchitecture. The 2955U also includes support for Intel 64 and Virtualization, an integrated Platform Control Hub (PCH), and some form of Intel HD Graphics.

The Core i5-4200H supports Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost and should provide 12 percent better performance than the upcoming i5-4200H CPU. Details on the i5-4200H’s integrated graphics are currently unavailable. The CPU will be produced in a BGA package and requires a separate PCH to operate.

The Celeron 2955U and Core i5-4200H are expected to be launched on September 1, 2013 at currently unknown price points.

    You mean the 2955?

    I hate it when Intel releases i5 dual-cores. That's why they have the i3 names, damn it.

    Need K i3 please, the problem with i3 in previous platform is, it isnt worth going i3 because I5 just do everything better, an i5 on dual core on turbo is still faster than i3. Unlike core 2 era, wheres the dual cores are significantly higher clock. i3 need to be clock @ 3.8-4Ghz @ 65w default TDP.

    Cryio the i5 and i7 dualcores are for laptops. The desktop i5 will not cone i dual.

    Even so, I doesn't make sense.

    So ... the i5 for laptops are i3 with Turbo Boost. Whoop-de-doo.

    I would love to see a Celeron K series to bad intel doesn't have enough common sense to see that something like that for ultra budget users would really pay off for them in that segment.

    The Ivy Bridge Celerons run great and they are like $45, can't wait to see how well the Haswells run.

    Every CPU and GPU manufacturer is doing this very same misleading marketing crap. AMD's mobile APU/GPUs are one spec step below their desktop counterparts for the same general model number range, Intel's mobile CPUs are one step below their desktop counterparts for similar model numbers, Nvidia's mobile GPUs too.

    Bringing unnecessary confusion to the market by reusing higher-end desktop model number for lower performance mobile parts is a standard practice. Gotta love how model numbers represent the "relative value of parts within a given market segment" rather than the relative performance across all same-generation/architecture products.

    More junk we don't really need, from my point of view.

    Haswell stick with my corei5-2500k :p

    Well, I mean, if you were given a choice between an IVY Celeron and a Haswell Celeron at the same price which would you pick?
