Intel Officially Releases New Haswell Processors
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
Intel yesterday released the rest of the Haswell Core Series processors. As you may have noticed the initial launch back in June up until now only covered high end Core i5 and Core i7 models for the desktop platform but this new launch extends the Haswell series to the Core i3 and Pentium series in addition to adding quite a few Core i5 and i7 models. Below you can see a summary of the new models, specifications and pricing courtesy of TechPowerUp. The two Celeron models are Ivy Bridge, and the two Core i5 models beginning with 3 are also Ivy Bridge.
For many system builders and budget system integrators these new releases from Intel are greatly welcomed as they mean two things. First is that the budget price point now buys you more efficient Intel CPUs with higher clock speeds for the same money. The second is that the release of new Haswell inventory in this market will force the price of Intel’s Ivy Bridge equivalents down.
UK pricing details can be found here for those that are interested.
