Intel is planning to launch their latest Haswell refresh processor lineup in Q2 2014 which bring nothing new to the architecture except basic clock speed improvements. VR-Zone has revealed the full lineup of Intel’s Core i7 based Haswell refresh processors which includes the Core i7-4790 leading the pack.

Intel Haswell Refresh Lineup For Q2 2014 Unveiled

In total, Intel is planning to launch seven new Haswell refresh processor variants which include the Core i7-4790, Core i7-4690, Core i5-4590, Core i5-4460, two low TDP variants with the ‘T’ suffix and a single low-voltage CPU with the ‘S’ suffix. The new Haswell refresh processors from Intel would be compatible with the LGA 1150 socket and both 8-Series and 9-Series chipsets. Intel’s 9-Series chipset will be able to support Intel’s Broadwell processor generation which would be the first chip to be based on the 14nm architecture for consumers.

The Intel Core i7-4790 would be replacing the Core i7-4770 and bring a 100 MHz clock speed bump bringing the final clock frequency to 3.6 GHz base and 4.0 GHz turbo. The Core i7-4690 would replace the Core i7-4670 with clock speed adjustments of 3.50 GHz base and 3.90 GHz turbo while the other two processors which include the Core i5-4590 and Core i5-4460 would be replacing Core i5-4570 and Core i5-4440 respectively with clock speeds rated at 3.3/3.7 GHz and 3.2/3.4 GHz.

The prices would remain the same as current processors since these chips would basically be replacing the current models at their respective MSRPs. As for the unlocked K-series chips, Intel is expected to launch K-Series Haswell Refresh chip in Q3 2014 prior to the launch of their Broadwell K-Series chips and their flagship Haswell-E HEDT platform by the end of 2014.
