Intel postponed its launch of Haswell CPUs

Intel has scheduled the launch of Haswell CPU for June 2013

A few weeks ago, the third largest motherboard manufacturer, ASRock claimed that they will launch their new LGA 1150 socket based motherboard sometimes during the last week of April 2013. Meanwhile, Intel is set to host a conference prior to Computex 2013 in June and announce its upcoming Haswell series processors, jointly with its downstream partners. The same source has also revealed that the new CPUs will appear on June 2 and its related PC products will be showcased at Computex 2013.


Based on earlier reports, the first Haswell Core i5-4×00 and i7-4700 will be powered with 14 desktop quad-core processors, and 7 mobile processors. However, it is expected that the new CPU will have exactly same specifications as Core i5 and i7 processors and so the main advantage of Haswell processor will be its microarchitecture and GPU enhancements. The models will significantly feature faster GT3 inbuit GPU and moderately faster GT 2 inbuilt GPU. In specific, the fourth generation Intel processor will show 10% faster CPU performance.
