New Details of Haswell, Intel Core 4000 Series Processors

A (translated) report coming from VR-Zone shows a table that is giving us just a bit more information about the upcoming Intel Haswell architecture and processors.

First, it looks like Intel is going to lean into the same naming scheme for these parts calling them the Core i3/i5/i7 4000 series parts, starting with the Core i7-4770K as the highest end option.  It will be a quad-core HyperThreaded part with a maximum Turbo Boost frequency of 3.9 GHz, very similar to the speeds and feed of today.

Graphics will be updated and called the HD 4600 with a clock rate as high as 1250 MHz.  The memory controller will remain dual-channel with support for DDR3-1600.

The only other item worth mentioning is the 84 watt TDP, up from the 77 watt TDP of the current Ivy Bridge lineup

All that is left to know now is ... pretty much everything including the performance of these new cores, the new graphics architecture and how that higher TDP will be utilized.

Can't wait for the reviews. I know Ryan is secretly holding onto these details. I can see his lips trembling trying to keep them closed every time Intel pops up.

If < 10% over Ivy is gained I will be disappoint that I waited 6 months to build the new rig.

I doubt Ryan has any details at this point. If anything he might know a bit more about the ULV chips than we do since Intel will be pushing those hard pretty soon, but that's it.

Intel is pretty tight-lipped right up until the launch is on top of us, and they still have a lot of Ivy Bridge chip to get rid of until then. They don't want us to hold off buying.

ill just wait for the core 5000 series, i guess

This looks like a series to skip over, it seems that Intel is really just bringing a "one design to rule them all" approach, (3W TDP <-> 84W TDP), and then server/HEDT (95W <-> 130W+ TDP)(IvyBridge-E/SandyBridge-E)

i5-4570T is interesting. Key will be price. Under $200 (under $150 even better) and AMD will be struggling in the HTPC market simply due to 35W TDP (passively cooled cases can cope with that easily).

AMD need badly to reduce TDP otherwise they are danger of becoming nothing more than space heaters

Complete total and utter meh, but I suppose this is what happens when you have no competition. Nice job AMD.

Looks like I'll be waiting for the core 6000 series, there just isn't a compelling reason to upgrade from the core 2000 series.

Thanks for posting this Ryan but can't get over excited about this development. Looks like an incremental update over ivy bridge and a bump in the graphics specs but will stay tuned nonetheless.

What happened to haswell being the 14nm monster?!?
