Report: Intels Haswell-E Processor to Support DDR4 Memory

Intel is reportedly developing an ultra high-end processor that they've codenamed "Haswell-E." It will replace the Ivy Bridge-E, a CPU that hasn't even been released yet but is expected to arrive in Q3 2013.

According to Fudzilla, the Haswell-E will have from 12 to 16 cores, a TDP of 130 W, and support for DDR4 memory that promises to deliver exponentially more bandwidth than previous generations of processors.

Given that none of these details have been finalized and that DDR4 memory is still far from being finalized or produced, we're somewhat skeptical of this report and are interested in seeing how much of it actually turns out to be true.

    I wonder how much of an impact faster ram speeds would even have in most tasks. In gaming there is already a miniscule improvement from 1333 to 2133 MHz.

    Hopefully this will help to offset the rising price of RAM

    This makes me not want to upgrade to haswell, I don't want to get stuck with DDR3 in when DDR4 is emerging like I did with my Core 2 Quad which got me stuck on DDR2 when DDR3 was coming out.
