Report: Intel Haswell CPU Pricing Possibly Leaked

By - Source: VR-Zone | B 35 comments

The prices of eight of the Haswell CPUs have been leaked.

VR-Zone has what could be leaked pricing information on a number of Haswell processors, and the list includes pricing for the flagship i7-4770K and the i5-4670K. The i7-4770K will have an MSRP price of $327, and the i5-4670K will cost $230, making it $35 more expensive than AMD's flagship FX-8350 chip.

Pricing has only been leaked for eight different chips though, while a total of 14 Haswell CPUs will be shipped on launch day.

The validity of these prices cannot be confirmed, so take it all with a grain of salt.

We can expect the Haswell CPUs to be released in June.

    Cheap? These prices are exactly in line with Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge before them.
    3 years with no significant change in performance per dollar. That is truly disappointing.

    Are they really going to be that cheap? I wish I could believe this.


    Prices are in line with Ivy Bridge, and seeing how the relative improvements in performance are significantly smaller than 5-6 years ago, I think this is pretty expensive.

    That's dirt cheap for Intel! If this is true i better get these for $50 through intelretailedge :)

    Considering how much more expensive Intel tends to be relative to AMD, I'd say one of three things are happening here;
    A. Intel is conceding smaller margins because the step up in performance is not as significant.
    B. Intel is trying to put pressure on AMD by pricing much closer to them.
    C. These leaked prices are false.

    have some of you been living under a rock? these are the same prices that ivy bridge is selling for.

    So the new processor anyone will ever need for gaming is the 4670K and the top is the 4770K.

    At least they're consistent.

    Microcenter will probably sell the 4470K for $279.99 and the 4670K for $189.99.

    I'm surprised that these don't cost more considering AMD's mediocre performance as of late. Here's to hoping for Steamroller and competition!

    What's the point? Until they figure out a way to bust through 4, 5 , 6 GHz stock there is absolutely no reason to upgrade. No (decently made) game is CPU bottlenecked and the pipelines of the Ivy bridge aren't even close to being fully utilized.

    Correct Answer: C

    Intel has been talking about an across the board +$30 price increase for Haswell. Those prices are basically where the IB chips are being sold today. Can't see it. They raised their prices $15 across the board for IB... i can't see them sticking to the same prices for Haswell

    Either way I am happy for this news. I am waiting for Haswell to come out to replace my AMD Phenom II build that is really getting long in the tooth. If I can get new Haswell and Z87 parts for around the same price as IB and Z77 parts then thats good for me.

    As someone who has a Core 2 Quad, I could definitely see myself spending the money to upgrade. Most of you commenting probably already have newer processors than I do, so upgrading for you might not make sense, but for me it does!

    i've got a PhII x4 965... unless the haswell is a nice jump in performance i think i'll skip upgrading again. right now this chip is basically indistinguishable outside of benchmarks from an i5-3570k... until i see a chip that is noticeably better i'll stick with this warhorse.

    I'm not sure why everyone in here is thinking Intel is doing any of this to battle AMD. They are not. Intel is trying to get the performance per watt to a point that they can compete with ARM.

    That's why you see the same clock speeds for 4 years now (3.5 GHz at the high end). While wattage has dropped more then 50% (not TDP, actual wattage).

    Intel is probably one gen away from hitting the point that watt for watt they can complete with ARM, so I would expect to see this same line up for Broadwell as well.

    1,200 MHz memory thats interesting that a cpu has memory...

    Now the real question for me is, how much will microcenter sell them for?

    So we need an new mobo and a new chip for an upgrade that feels more like a side-grade?

    I can't see anyone getting their monies worth if they have SB/IB. I am starting to think that the i5 2500k was a peak in terms of bang for you buck.

    IMO, this (insane cost to upgrade for little reason to) is yet another reason why PC sells are slowing.

    Once again, people flooding the comments section with claims of no improvement from Intel and a steady price, expecting them to cut prices and take a hit on profits despite a lack of compettition forcing them to do so.

    Heck, ever since IVB all i've been reading is people claiming that the next i7 will be north of $350.

    Today, a core i3 meets or beats my Core 2 Quad Q8400 in almost everything, despite my CPU being a $200 part (more, at launch).

    Exactly, same here. Will probably get a 4770K, if finances work out.

    Again, +1. It's like half the Tom's community refuses to read most of the analysis articles...though AnandTech is usually more in-depth with Intel-related stuff.
