Chipzilla rumoured to be preparing 8-core Haswell E

Written by Nick Farrell



Core what a scorcher price tag

Intel will reportedly introduce an eight-core Haswell-E CPU in the third quarter of 2014 that will cost somewhere in the area of $1,000.

The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell of earth rumour which claims that the eight-core Haswell-E processor will replace the Ivy Bridge-E series that’s currently on the market. However, the new Haswell-Es will make up a “small” portion of Intel’s shipments, and those together with Ivy Bridge-E processors will only make up five percent of Intel shipments by the end of next year.

The eight-core Intel Haswell-E chips will also support DDR4 RAM clocked at a maximum of 2,133 MHz, along with Hyper-Threading, Turbo Boost 2.0 and PCI Express 3.0. They will also be introduced in two separate series: X and K. It’s unclear what the difference will be between the two.

Still it is nice that Chipzilla still sees merit in the ridiculously priced market.
