Intel Haswell To Be Formally Revealed on June 4th

/ 5 years ago


This week, Intel Corp finally confirmed that their next generation Intel Core i processor “Haswell” will be formally revealed on June 4th 2013.

The new chips are set to be the next major upgrade in the CPU market and will bring with them a significant decrease in power consumption as well as an increase in performance. As with any major power reduction the new generation of Intel CPU’s will bring great benefits to the mobile market, as anything that saves power in notebooks, ultra books and similar devices is a welcome bonus, especially if that power reduction doesn’t come at the cost of performance.

Compared to Sandy Bridge, Haswell manages to cut the idle power requirements of Haswell by a factor of 20 and with Intel offering Haswell products with power ratings ats low as 10w, the world of Ultra books and high powered tablets is about to get a major refresh.

While the mobile market is about to see big boosts, so too is the desktop market and these power consumption benefits will carry across to the desktop range of Haswell cores, bringing new levels of performance along with familiar features such as DDR3 support, DDR power gating and three PCI Express 3.0 controllers. Even though Haswell is drastically different in terms of internal chip design to previous generations, for the end consumer it will still operate in the same way we’re all used to, just with more speed, more features and less power input, which is obviously a good thing.

    Another pointless ‘more power efficient’ release from Intel.
    *Flies away*

      Power saving is always a good thing but if it’s not your priority and if you’re already on either Sandy or Ivy there’s probably little reason to invest in Haswell.

        Does any overclocker think about power savings?? I don’t think so. And that includes myself.

        • I do. Lower power consumption has many benefits. 1) reduced heat output of the CPU meaning you can overclock with cheaper cooling solutions. 2) Lower energy bills from lower power consumption. 3) less power consumption means less negative environmental impacts of excessive consumption 4) lower power consumption means PSU works “less hard” and is quieter, or you can use a lower Wattage PSU which would be cheaper 5) Less strain put on motherboard VRM so components last longer and have longer longevity 6) less power consumption can server to increase battery life in notebooks, or systems that run battery back ups (AKA UPS -uninterruptable power supplies) will also last longer 7) Less heat output means less heat inside your case which keeps other components cooler….. I am sure there are more but as you can see there are many benefits to all users, even to the overclocker 1,2,4,5 and 7 still apply.

            There you have it. All i3 & i5 desktop processors are laptop processors adapted for the desktop anyway & i7 (not all) processors are dumbed down server parts. Intel doesn’t design & manufacture ‘desktop only’ parts nowadays so every new generation of i3 & i5 will come with substantial power saving development. As long as performance climbs, great.

          • d6bmg says:

            You have said it – “performance improvement”. I would say ‘significant’ performance improvement – what Intel used to do ~2-3 years ago when there was significant competition from Phenom processors & earlier.
            As overclocker’s prospective, everything is good as long as there is upgrade worthy performance improvement.
            That’s what I wanted to say in my first post.

          • d6bmg says:

            Yes. All that matters is performence.
            Good performing hardware? Everyone is happy.
            Hardware isn’t performing greatly? Then the company have problem in their hand.

      • d6bmg says:

        I’m still using sandy-bridge processors. No urge for upgrade even after the release of the specification of haswell.
