Intel Haswell Core i3 And Pentium Pricing Detailed
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
CPU World have managed to get a hold of some pricing details about Intel’s Haswell Core i3. The pricing information comes from pre-order listings from ShopBLT and they have the majority of the unreleased Haswell processor models listed. Above you can see a table compiled with all the models, their specifications and their price. Generally speaking the pre-order pricing of Haswell is more or less identical to that of Ivy Bridge, though we will likely see a higher premium at retailers because retailers know consumers will pay more for newer Haswell Core series processors than they would for older Ivy Bridge processors.
This is also an opportunity to check out the final confirmed specifications of these products. Interestingly the lower end Pentium models have weaked Integrated graphics that the Core iX models but they do come with a substantially smaller price point. No doubt the Haswell Pentium processors will continue to be a favourite among low end system builders and even moderate gaming systems – pairing the Haswell Pentiums up with a mid-range GPU like a GTX 650Ti or HD 7790 would be capable of doing most modern games on medium settings running at 1920 x 1080.
There were no details on when we should expect to see these new Haswell processors arrive but within the next month seems realistic since retailers and distributors now know what the final retail prices are.
