Haswell Refresh CPUs Launch Date Revealed
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
While many have suspected that Intel will launch their new Haswell CPUs at this years Computex 2014, word has it now that the chips could hit the market sooner. Some sources within the industry are pointing towards May 10th for most markets, meaning the wait for the refreshed Haswell hardware may be a big shorter than you were expecting.
The new hardware is mostly just tweaks and adjustments to the current range, but with the Core i7-4790K at the top of the new list, May 10th could still be very exciting. Expect slightly better performance from the bulk of the refresh hardware, but also expect them to keep the same price points as the current offerings. What we’re really excited about is the support of 9-series chipsets, bringing M.2 SSD support which will see the launch of 1000 MB/s SSDs and more!
If you’re about to upgrade to Haswell, it may be worth waiting just a little longer for the refresh hardware.
