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.

    Meh... I'll wait off on the new socket type until there are motherboards compatible with DDR4 which should be sometime next year...

    Haswell 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.

    Man, is anyone else tired of having what "Tick Tock" means explained in every other intel article? It's been their release cycle since like 2006, at this point you should be able to just link to a Wikipedia page or something!

Why would they switch back to soldering the CPU onto the motherboard? Most people don't build their own computers and having the CPU soldered onto the motherboard would make it harder for venders to service the computers they sell.

    Too bad they are still waiting on the new revision chipset to fix the usb3 s3 wakeup issue, it is like the Sandy Bridge B2 chipset issue (had to do with the Sata ports) all over again....
