Intel Haswell Refresh Lineup For Q2 2014 Unveiled – Core i7-4790 Leading The Pack
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.
