Good new for Intel fans, the wait for Haswell is almost over. While Intel has yet to officially announce a specific launch date for its fourth generation Core processor line, it's widely expected Haswell will peek its head into retail in June after the Computex convention in Taipei, which runs from June 4 to 8, 2013. Even better news, it doesn't look like Haswell will carry a hefty pricing premium over Ivy Bridge.

VR-Zone's portal in China listed what it claims are retail box pricing for Haswell chips for dealers. What that means is you can expect to pay a little more at retail. In any event, here's what they have listed.

Model
Cores
Clocks
Boost
L3 Cache
iGPU
TDP
MSRP
i7 4770K
4c/8t
 3.50GHz  3.90GHz 8MB
 HD 4600
84W
$327
I7 4770
4c/8t
 3.50GHz  3.90GHz 8MB
 HD 4600 84W $292
 i7 4770S
4c/8t
 3.10GHz  3.90GHz 8MB
 HD 4600 65W $285
 i5 4670K
4c/4t
 3.40GHz  3.8i0GHz 6MB
 HD 4600 84W $227
i5 4670
4c/4t
 3.40GHz  3.80GHz 6MB
 HD 4600 84W $209
i5 4570
4c/4t
 3.20GHz  3.60GHz 6MB
 HD 4600 84W $189
 i5 4570S
4c/4t
 3.00GHz  3.60Ghz 6MB
 HD 4600 65W $182
i5 4430
4c/4t
 3.00Ghz  3.20GHz 6MB
 HD 4600 84W $175

According to VR-Zone, these chips launch June 2, the day before Computex, though it's unclear if you'll actually be able to purchase them at the start of June. Regardless, Haswell is close, and rumored pricing looks pretty good.

Thats weird pricing to me. I could see 329.99 but 327 is just weird.

My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630

Hmm. I'm wonder how much better these processors are going to be over Ivy Bridge.

This is a tock processor which generally means increases in efficiency, 327 is not a bad price for a solid second gen K processor either, not at all

4770K does not look bad price wise.

"Tick" generally means a process shrinking, so its a minimal gain in performance. Usually developments are made in power draw and temperatures, small things like that.

Haswell will be a "Tock". Tock being the louder of the sounds, usually means a bigger performance jump, with improvements in efficiency, power draw, onboard graphics, large things.

The jump to Sandy bridge was pretty big. then the baby step from sandy to Ivy was as expected, but a little more toned down than most thought. However we did see quite a few more features some out of it.

Most people are thinking that we will see a large jump in performance, however not nearly as much as it was going into Sandy Bridge. Overall I believe you can expect a 10%-15% performance boost.

Personally, I am waiting for ivy-bridge E, because that will be a little more exciting for me :P

PC Specs:

  • AMD Athlon 64 x2 6400+  Cooled by a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (push-pull)
  • 2GB DDR2
  • MSI Radeon HD 6450 2GB
  • Stock Dell motherboard
  • 250Gb HDD
  • XFX Pro Core edition 650W PSU
  • Stock Dell inspiron case

10-15% still isn't bad. The question is though is the cost for the Ivy-Bridge E processors worth the performance gains?

I am pretty excited to see what these haswell chips can do in the mobile market... Hopefully they can increase battery life a lot, 5 hours on the surface pro is a little old in my opinion.

Sounds awesome to me. This sounds like a wonderful all purpose CPU. Either for laptops or All in Ones
