Intel series chipsets slated for April 2013

Posted on Thursday, July 19 2012 @ 14:36:37 CEST by

Sources at motherboard makers told DigiTimes that Intel plans to release its 8-series chipsets along with Haswell-based processors in April 2013. PC demand in Q3 2012 is rather weak, motherboard makers believe Ivy Bridge shipments should reach their peak in Q4 2012 and believe Ivy Bridge may become the Intel notebook platform with the shortest lifecycle in recent years, considering it was only released in April 2012.
Haswell will adopt a 22nm process with an improved architecture, while its interface will also change from LGA1155 to LGA1150, greatly enhancing in both calculation and graphics performance. Since LGA1150 is not backward compatible, users will need to purchase 8 series chipset-based motherboards to run the new processors.

In April 2013, Intel will first launch performance- and mainstream-level Haswell processors, and will release Z87 and H87 to replace the existing Z77, Z75 and H77 chipsets. The entry-level H81 chipsets will be released in June 2013 to replace the existing H61 chipset. For enterprise chipsets, Intel will release Q87, Q85 and B85 with Q87 to also support Intel's vPro technology.
