Report: Haswell Refresh Prices and SKU List

It's already widely known that there's a refresh coming for Haswell CPUs, though exact details on SKUs have been scarce. Now though, the folks over at Guru3D.com have spotted a price list on ShopBLT, which shows 10 out of 20 of the upcoming SKUs. The list includes Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 CPUs, but no K-series processors yet.Image Source: Guru3DImage Source: Guru3D

As you can see, the improvements over the current generation of Haswell processors are marginal, with this list showing no more than simply a frequency boost. That said, it is expected that we'll be seeing Intel's 9-series of chipsets come out along with the release of the Haswell refresh.

    Seriously? The i5's are already almost out of my price range, and I want to do a custom build soon... This isn't good news for me. :/

    If this is true it just helps the following beliefs.1. Intel is just as guilty as Ms been with windows 8 for the pc decline as its no point in upgrading.2. Intel is without real competition and this 100 mhz upgrade is proportionally even worse than the 33mhz ones befort Athlon came.So will intel continue on the path to help destroy their own income like this or will they aim to make upgrades worthwile and earn more money from that? Guess time will tell...

    There is no real PC decline. People keep saying that if it is a fact but it isn't.

    As for the older 33MHz upgrades, that was a long time ago and technology wasn't as evolved. In fact we haven't seen major MHz upgrades in a long time because MHz is not the major factor in a CPUs performance anymore.

    Along with that, if Intel went full steam ahead and just kept rolling they would eventually outpace AMD to the point that they would become a monopoly and would be heavily fined by the government even though all they were doing was pushing out new stuff while AMD hang back a bit.
