Intel’s New 4th Generation ‘Haswell’ Processors

Haswell-intelEarlier this month Intel formally introduced its new 4th-generation Core processors for desktop and mobile PCs. These 4th-Generation Core processors (also known as Haswell) will gradually replace last year’s 3rd generation Core processors (also known as Ivy Bridge) in many of the same system setups and configurations. Intel’s 4th-generation processors are being built on a new 22nm manufacturing process, which was introduced with the 3rd-generation Core processor.

Like previous Ivy Bridge (i3, i5, and i7-3xxx) processors, the new Haswell processors will come with an i3, i5, or i7 brand number followed by a four- to six-digit model number starting with the number 4. Fourth-gen mobile and desktop processors will be energy-efficient, allowing system manufacturers to expand and refine their designs for new product categories.

“We made one of the most seismic changes to our roadmap ever to build these new Core processors that deliver the stunning performance of the PC and the mobility of a tablet in one device. The new processors power the most exciting 2-in-1 designs to-date.” said Executive Vice President Tom Kilroy.
