Intel next-gen Haswell CPU line-up leaked, Core i7-4770K the flagship

VR-Zone has managed to get their hands on the line-up for Intel's upcoming 22nm Haswell desktop processors, revealing that there will be initially 14 CPUs across the Core i7 and Core i5 brands. These processors will be utilizing a brand new CPU socket - LGA 1150 - on Lynx Point chipset motherboards, and are split into six standard power SKUs and eight low power SKUs.

The flagship chip out of the bunch will be the Intel Core i7-4770K, bringing a 3.50 GHz base clock speed across four cores and eight threads, with a 3.9 GHz boost speed and an 8 MB cache. The on-die graphics gets updated to Intel's HD 4600 offering with a 1250 MHz dynamic max frequency, but perhaps more interesting is the TDP boost to 84W (from 77W in Ivy Bridge chips) across the "standard power" range.

All Core i7 chips in the Haswell line-up will feature 4 cores and 8 threads with 8 MB of cache, while the majority of Core i5 chips have 4 cores and 4 threads with 6 MB of cache. For the low-power range, TDPs range from 65W down to 35W, and you'll be able to pick up a CPU with a clock speed between 3.10 and 2.00 GHz.

Haswell is the successor to Intel's current Ivy Bridge line of CPUs, keeping the same 22nm process but introducing a brand new microarchitecture for improved performance. The first round of processors are expected to be released in Q2 of 2013.
