Intel Readying New Batch of Haswell Processors for September Launch

Intel is reportedly going to add over a dozen new processors to its desktop Haswell line on September 1, which is just two days away at this point. That means if you're currently shopping Intel chips, you may want to wait until after the weekend to see what Intel has on tap and whether or not any of the prices for current parts come down.

According to Digitimes, among the new releases will be the high-end Core i7 4771, mid-range Core i5 4440 and Core i3 4340, and entry-level Pentium G3430.

Intel is also planning to launch new Haswell parts for notebooks. Among the two dozen chips slated for laptops, there will be the Core i7 4610Y, Core i5 4300Y, Pentium 3560Y, and Celeron 2955U. In case you're wondering the "Y" and "U" designations point to the low-power segment, while "M" is for mainstream and "H" is for high-performance.

Four new Ivy Bridge processors will also make a debut, and towards the end of next month, Intel is likely announce its Bay Trail T platform for tablets and Avoton platform for low-power servers, both of which are based on the company's Silvermont architecture.
