Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
The final release date for the upcoming Intel Core i7 HEDT (High-End Desktop) processors, which go by the codename Haswell-E. The new chips will also launch along side the new Intel X99 Express chipset, and we now know that you’ll be able to get your hands on the new hardware on August 29th.
The platform will bring support for DDR4 memory modules to the consumer market, something that has certainly been a long time coming.
The Cire i7 Haswell E includes three parts, two six-core and one eight-core models will be available at launch.
The top model will be the 5960X which features eight cores, HyperThreading for 16 logical CPUs, 20MB of L3 cache, a 3.0 GHz clock speed and a price tag in excess of $1000 (ouch).
Next we have the i7-5930K which features six cores, HyperThreading, 15MB L3 cache, a 3.5 GHz clock speed and is expected to cost between $500 and $750.
Finally the i7-4820K, another six-core model but it’s specifications remain unclear, but it is expected to be priced between $350 and $450.
