    Default [VR-ZONE]Intel 2014 Haswell-E to pack 8 cores, DDR4, X99 PCH and more

    Here’s some exclusive scoop to feed your hunger. Intel will finally launch 8 core CPUs for desktops with the 2014 enthusiast grade Haswell-E platform.












    With
    Intel’s Ivy Bridge-E platform (scheduled for 2H 2013) to be a bummer considering the minor minor specifications and performance bump over the 2012 Sandy Bridge-E platform, all eyes turn to the 2014 Haswell-E enthusiast grade platform. And we may just have some good news that gets your excitement engines started.




    Intel Haswell-E


    Intel’s next-generation performance oriented platform, Haswell-E is scheduled to make its debut in the 2H of 2014. The world semiconductor leader will be stepping up its game a notch and offer an 8 core desktop CPU for the first time (the biggest leap since the introduction of 6 core CPUs a couple of years back). Perhaps this sudden urge to deliver 8 cores comes with the fact that Haswell will not be succeeded by Broadwell 14nm Tick in 2014 (I’m sorry to break all your hearts on this). Instead, we’ll be treated to a Haswell refresh, most certainly improved clock speeds at the same (never-changing) price.
    We will finally have an 8-core desktop CPU from Intel!
    With Haswell-E, Intel will do away with 4-core configurations of these GPU-less dies and offer users a choice of 6 and 8 core CPUs, with up to 20 MB of L3 cache. Of course, Hyper Threading isn’t going anywhere giving the CPU a maximum of 16 logical cores. Maximum TDP for the platform will lie in the range of 130W to 14oW and the processors itself will be built on 22nm 2nd generation Hi-k process.







    Let’s speculate performance, Haswell-E, owing to 2 more cores (4 more threads) compared to the upcoming Ivy Bridge-E platform, and taking in all architectural enhancements into consideration, should perform between 33-50% better (best case scenario) than the 2013 enthusiast platform. Finally, a real new performance part by Intel. Of course, this won’t be a game changer as AMD continues to be virtually non-existent in competing with Intel on CPU performance (and that scenario will most likely not change in the near future as well, we’re talking AMD Steamroller here)


    Wellsburg Chipset
    With Haswell-E, Intel will introduce their new Wellsburg family of motherboard chipsets. The biggest new feature (and it’s really big) is the support for DDR4 RAM clocked up to 2133 MHz (of course, you can overclock and take it much further than that). The Wellsburg X-PCH will support a number of connectivity options:


    • Up to 6 x USB 3.0 ports
    • Up to 8 x USB 2.0 ports
    • Up to 10 x SATA 6 Gbps ports
    • Integrated Clock support
    • TDP of 6.5W















    Quad-Channel DDR4 RAM
    Here’s some more information related to RAM support, Wellsburg will only allow you to install DDR4 type RAM on the motherboard, with speed configurations being in steps of 1333 MHz, 1600 MHz, 1866 MHz and 2133 MHz. Something tells us that 2133 MHz will be the minimum speed of DDR4 kits that go on sale next year (enthusiasts won’t be going for any less anyway).
    Quad-channel DDR4 RAM along with increased frequencies could lead to a near 50% increase in bandwidth compared to the older, triple-channel configuration which housed much more conservative RAM clock speeds.











    The chipset will support low voltage (1.2V) DDR4 RAM kits (must be the 1333 MHz ones). The DIMM connector now has 288 pins (as opposed to 284 from earlier), the 4 additional pins added to support NVDIMM modules. Good news is that both 284/288 pin RAM modules will be usable on motherboards with the 284 pin connector or the new 288 pin connector.


    LGA 2011-3 Socket
    Haswell-E will bring a new version of your same old LGA 2011 socket with it. Dubbed LGA 2011-3, the derived socket has the same dimensions and ball pattern pitch as LGA 2011. Basically, the number of pins remains the same while their layout changes. According to the slides, the new design is more efficient as per Intel’s research, and additional wings in the LGA 2011-3 socket help improve package handling.








    Conclusion
    Haswell-E is going to be a blast. From what we’ve seen, Intel is putting in a lot of efforts to the last 22nm platform. In short, if you’ve been waiting to replace your current system with Intel’s highest end offerings, Haswell-E is the platform to wait for (and grab, the moment it’s out).

    At last.......
    I hope the price of combination of CPU + MB + 16GB DDR4 RAM <= $800.

    PC upgrade time in 2014 after long 5-6 years of i5 750.

    Ram will not increase the performance,, because,, ddr2 is still as good as ddr3... Hope that CPU will be much stronger enough to motivate us to upgrade... Core cache is not always important .. CPU is a comprehensive thing. .. It is like team where everyone has to perform to win over others

    R.I.P AMD Octa-cores, they were the only thought to be the only(and by AMD Optimistics) 8-Core Processors to yet reach their pinnacle.
