We have been telling you about this in our previous leaks for quite some time now, but the official confirmation (by VR Zone) comes no less the sweeter. All our previous Haswell Refresh and Intel 9 Series Chipset leaks have been more or less confirmed, and not only that, but the dates for the Intel Haswell, 9 Series Chipset and Devil’s Canyon has been confirmed.Intel Haswell Refresh Devil's Canyon

Intel Haswell Refresh and 9 Series Chipset launching on May 11th – Devils Canyon and Pentium K Following 2nd June 2014

I guess I don’t really have a lot of information for this particular post apart from the fact that I can now completely confirm the launch dates of all the upcoming Intel SKUs. Basically the Intel 9 Series Chipset Z97 and H97 will be launching along with the Haswell Refresh lineup. The Devils Canyon ‘K’ Unlocked Haswell Refresh will be following along with their Pentium ‘K’ counterparts on the second day of June 2014. Several Z97 motherboard lineups have so far been leaked which include MSI’s Z97 Gaming, ASUS Z97 ROG, ASUS Z97 TUF, ASUS Z97 Legacy and Gigabyte’s Gaming lineup.

Devil’s Canyon along with Pentium Unlocked Processors will be coming in June 2 ( redundancy? ). Devil’s Canyon will feature improved TIM and will actually be a true upgrade as compared to the above mentioned processors which are basically just architectural improvements and about 100 – 200 Mhz frequency bumps. The Core i7-4790K will be the flagship processor of the Haswell Refresh lineup and the first 22nm consumer CPU to obtain clock frequency of 4 GHz. It will feature 4 cores and 8 threads along with a fully unlocked design which will allow users to overclock the chip past the limits thanks to the improved thermal design and updated package materials.

Intel seems to finally be fixing the heatsink issue faced on Ivy Bridge and Haswell once and for all with their upcoming Haswell Refresh processors. Featuring an improved design that incorporates updated packaging materials, improved TIM (Thermal Interface) and processors that are specifically re-engineered for enhanced performance and overclocking. So many users who have been waiting for Intel to update their TIM design since Ivy Bridge can now check out the new processors for their overclocking needs.
