New Intel Haswell Processors Detailed

/ 3 years ago



On the back of some Intel roadmaps being released we now have some more details for you about what they show. Firstly, the mysterious Core i7 4771 turns out to be just an i7 4770K that isn’t unlocked according to a TechPowerUp report. While the i7 4770K is a 3.5GHz base and 3.9GHz boost processor the current i7 4770 is 3.4GHz base and 3.9GHz boost. The i7 4771 on the other hand will be 3.5GHz base and 3.9GHz boost so is essentially 0.1 GHz faster than the i7 4770 but identical to the i7 4770K except without the unlocked multiplier.

Next we know they will all lack Turbo Boost but they will all have hyper threading to compensate as usual. Two of the i3 models above have HD 4600 graphics while one has HD 4400 graphics. HD 4600 integrated graphics are rated for 4K usage while HD 4400 is only recommended for 1600P usage. Here are some detailed specifications for each of the three models:

  • Core i3 4340 – 2 Cores and 4 Threads at 3.6GHz. 4MB of L3 Cache and HD 4600 Graphics. 54W TDP.
  • Core i3 4330 – 2 Cores and 4 Threads at 3.5GHz. 4MB of L3 Cache and HD 4600 Graphics. 54W TDP.
  • Core i3 4130 – 2 Cores and 4 Threads at 3.4GHz. 3MB of L3 Cache and HD 4400 Graphics. 54W TDP.

Naturally the price ascends from the Core i3 4130 to the Core i3 4340. We will bring you any more details as soon as we get them.

    All I can see is the new haswell in Q2, 2014. Only one year to go next version of processors. So, no upgrade for me in this period of time.

      Aha! Isn’t Broadwell supposed to be BGA only? If that’s the case, then you’re out of luck with a processor & mobo upgrade.

        Let see what actually happens at that point of time..

          If they do offer a LGA socket for Broadwell it’ll most likely be the last.

            As I’ve said let see.
            Letting go the LGA socket means a regressive step from the enthusiast market.
            Yes, Intel do not have real competitor, but still, they will definitely think twice before taking that risk (?)
