Intel's Haswell desktop processors detailed in leaked chart

updated 06:32 pm EST, Wed December 12, 2012

Chart shows plans for Haswell architecture in 2013

Details on Intel's Haswell processor family have been relatively scarce since the company formally announced the line in September, but now a document has emerged that appears to reveal Intel's plans for the processor line next year. The next year should see the release of at least 14 new desktop CPUs, topping out at a 3.5GHz Core i7 with the potential for 400MHz more in Boost Mode. That model would be operating across four cores and eight threads.

The Haswell line will keep the 22nm process used in Intel's Ivy Bridge range of CPUs, according to VR-Zone, but would implement a new microarchitecture for improved performance. Intel is also said to have tweaked the integrated graphics capabilities for its forthcoming line of chips, and the document leaked contains references to HD 4600.

The leak, of course, cannot be confirmed, but it does appear to conform to some of what Intel has previously revealed regarding the line. The Haswell line is said to be able to drive either 4K displays or run three physical HD-quality monitors side by side as an individual monitor. The leak suggests that the first Haswell processors will begin hitting the market in the second quarter of 2013, with high-end LGA 2011-pin processors coming in the third quarter.
