Haswell-E Intel Core i7 5000 CPUs to launch in Q2 2014

Intel decided to accelerate its plans to introduce the new i7 Extreme ‘Haswell-E’ series processors and Intel X99 series motherboard chips by unveiling it at Computex 2014 in June. As expected the platform is made for enthusiasts as it will provide tuning and overclocking features, allow up to 5 PCIe 2.0/3.0 x8 mode, up to 10 SATA 6Gbps ports, 6 native USB 3.0, Intel Rapid Storage, Rapid Recover and other features.


It was known that Intel planned to unveil the enthusiast class Haswell-E processors by Q3 2014, along with the long list of motherboards with Intel X99 using the LGA 2011-3 socket. As always, motherboard manufacturer will arm these chipsets with multiple overclocking and fine-tuning capabilities with other features such as Thunderbolt 2.0, 802.11 AC, better onboard audio, etc.

But this will also add a pressure on memory manufacturers to roll out DDR4 modules much sooner than expected. The same will have to be said for Cooling system manufacturers. This is a surprise and interesting move considering the next-gen enthusiast class processors will be aimed towards a fraction of the overall DIY PC market.
