Intel Haswell

Recommended Posts

Thought it was about time we created a thread for the upcoming Haswell CPU's from Intel. Feel free to post links with any information or rumours you come across

 

Here are some of the "newer" articles I've seen recently: Intel Haswell Platform Faces USB 3.0 Issue: Report and Intel Haswell and Lynx Point Chipset Arrive in March 2013: Report. This one came out today, and I am in the progress of reading through it as we speak: Core i7-4770K: Haswell's Performance, Previewed

Whats the go with Haswell? I haven't really been looking into upcoming PC hardware at all in the last year or so, what socket will it be using?

LGA1150. A new socket...

Small performance boost, large power consumption reduction for mobile platforms.

Is it Haswell that's meant to jump the onboard graphics up another level, or is that the generation after?

Haswell graphics will be much faster than Ivy Bridge, but only in BGA CPU's. Normal desktop Haswell CPU's get the GT2 graphics, which is a bit faster than Ivy Bridge. GT3 is mainly for mobile platforms you could say, which often use BGA instead of LGA. The GT3 graphics on paper are said to be as fast, or +/-, as AMD's APU's

I do hope it'll be better than Ivy though

 

Haswell GT3e Pictured, Coming to Desktops (R-SKU) & Notebooks

One of the worst kept secrets is Haswell will have four different GPU configurations: GT1, GT2, GT3 and GT3e. As with Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge, higher numbers mean more execution units, with GT3 topping out at 40 EUs. The lowercase e denotes an embedded DRAM part, with some amount of DRAM on the Haswell package itself (not on-die).

 

In an awesome scoop, the folks at VR-Zone managed to snag a photo of what looks like a quad-core Haswell die with GT3e graphics. The small package to the left should be the Lynx Point chipset (8-series), while the dual-die package on the right is Haswell + DRAM. The big square die should be Haswell itself with its 40 EU GPU, while the smaller die is the DRAM itself.

 

Intel hasn't officially acknowledged the existence of GT3e, but it did demonstrate performance of the part at CES earlier this year - targeting somewhere around the speed of NVIDIA's GeForce GT 650M. The DRAM size, operating frequency and bus width are all unknown at this point. I've heard the DRAM itself should be relatively small, looking at the chip shot we get some indication but there's no confirmation of the specific type of memory we're looking at here (which obviously impacts die area).

 

Haswell GT3e will be available both in notebooks and desktops, however neither will come in socketed form (BGA-only). The desktop parts will carry an R suffix. This will be the beginning of Intel's socketed/soldered strategy on the desktop, which as of now is set to work sort of like tick tock - with the first chips on any new process being sold exclusively in BGA packages. Haswell will have socketed desktop SKUs, Broadwell won't, Skylake will, etc...

 

GT3e use in notebooks will be limited to larger designs it seems. Don't expect to find this level of graphics performance in a low wattage Ultrabook part, but it will likely surface in bigger notebooks - perhaps those driving ultra high resolution panels.

The reason why I quoted it this time is that I think it makes some very important points, not just about graphics but also the future of socketed Intel CPU's Edited by nobody813

should be better those results from toms where it shows memory bandwidth suggest something is up which will be lowering haswells performance in there tests

im expecting at least as good over ivy as ivy is over sandy but hopefully unlike ivy it will bring better overclocking

Does anyonw know if Intel will use the thermal paste on Haswell like they did on the Ivy Bridge chips or if they will stop being stingy and use solder instead like they did for Sandybridge?

No idea mate. Hopefully for the sake of enthusiasts it'll be the latter

Dunno what to think of the rumored chip specs though, seems to have gone backwards...

Intel aren't silly, plus they have a now-matured 22nm node now, I'm excited to see how Haswell goes.
