Word hit the web that Intel plans to release its first eight-core desktop processors, the Haswell-E series, in the third quarter of 2014. The new series will require a motherboard with the X99 chipset and will reportedly cost around $1,000.
The Haswell-E series will adopt a 22nm process and have two separated branches, X and K series. The CPUs also support Intel's Hyper-Threading technology and Turbo Boost technology 2.0, PCI-Express Gen 3.0 and DDR4 memory up to 2,133MHz, the sources explained. The X99 chipsets will support native USB 3.0 ports and feature 10 6Gb/s SATA ports, the sources added.
For regular consumers Intel will roll out the Haswell Refresh platform in Q2 2014. Shipments will start in May and motherboards with the new Z97 and H97 chipsets should be available in April.
