Report: Intel Haswell to be Released on June 2, 2013

It appears that Intel's Haswell processor will launch in early June. According to slides that were leaked to the Chinese website VR-Zone, the product introduction time frame will be between May 27 and June 7, 2013.

Consumers apparently will be able to get their Haswell processors beginning on June 2. The slides indicate that Intel is preparing 14 different desktop SKUs as well as seven mobile SKUs for launch.

Of course, Sunday, June 2 as the introduction date for Haswell is still speculation at this point, but Intel traditionally launches new architectures on Sundays and there is no reason to believe that the company will break this tradition with Haswell. The extended introduction is likely due to the Computex tradeshow, which opens its doors on June 4 to 8.


Haswell therefore arrives substantially later than originally anticipated and it appears that Intel's product cadence has become much more elastic recently. The original tick-tock model that was introduced in 2006 predicted die shrinks in uneven years and new architectures in even years. With the a June launch date, Intel is about six months behind its own plan.


The information posted by VR-Zone also reveals a slight change in the sequence numbering system. The models Core i7-4930MX, Core i7-4900MQ, Core i7-4800MQ, Core i7-4702HQ, Core i7-4700HQ, Core i7-4702MQ and Core i7-4700MQ switch their name extensions from "QM" to "MQ". HQ models are new in the lineup.

Any word on pricing yet? I'm looking at doing a Haswell build (My Core 2 Quad is getting a bit long in the tooth now) but there is zero information on the costs that I can find :(

EDIT: Also, what's up with that naming scheme? Did they just pluck random numbers out of the air?

im sure the pricing will be on par w/ today's processors.

as for the release date - i wouldnt be surprised if Intel released a high-end CPU part well before June. Intel's stuck to the Q2 2013 release window for Haswell, but June seems a bit late into Q2.

Looks like my next PC will be Intel Haswell + AMD HD 8000 + a sweet SSD drive for Windows and my main programs. Now to wait 6 months :cry:

What socket is that going to be? 1155 or 2011? Or a socket we not yet have?

All processors feature a new socket called LGA 1150 -- a replacement for the current LGA 1155/Socket H2 -- and will use the Lynx Point chipset motherboards.

I know it's taken directly from Tom's Hardware, but I couldn't be arsed to create an account to correct them. VR-Zone is a Singaporean website, not Chinese.

I'd prefer if you didn't use any other text color but the default. It's invisible in the dark theme.

XM and QM are all mobile processors. No word on desktop models or naming, is there? I still hope LGA 2011 will not have started and is about to end with Sandy Bridge E.
