Intel Starts Shipping Haswell Processors to OEMs

Intel has started shipping its Haswell CPUs to system builders. The site also states that the processors will be launched at the end of this quarter, with Intel providing more details next Wednesday at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF 2013) conference in Beijing. 

The Haswell processor family is part of Intel's "tick tock" design process in which it launches a new processor design in one year, and then shrinks it to a smaller process size in the following year. Haswell offers design tweaks made to the Ivy Bridge architecture, which is essentially a process-shrunk revision of Sandy Bridge. New features introduced in Haswell include HNI instruction set architecture extensions, a high-performance L4 cache layer, models with a 10 W TDP and more.

    bee144Haswell is the last "open" socket type. I plan on buying this generation as Broadwell will have the CPU soldered onto the mobo. I want the ability to pick and choose.

    Is that a rumor or confirmed?
