Cheaper Haswell processors on the horizon, pricing available

It’s no secret Intel plans to unveil Core i3 and Pentium chips on the Haswell architecture in September and with the new month knocking on the door Intel has prepared a few new chips for work. All in all the US chip giant will unveil three new Core i3 processors, a faster Core i5 chip, a new Core i7 high-end part and three budget-oriented Pentium processors. All chips will be built on the tried and tested 22 nm tech process.

The entry-level Pentium line on the Haswell architecture will have two cores and will be represented by the Pentium G3220 (3.0 GHz, 3 MB shared L3 cache, USD 70.61), Pentium G3420 (3.2 GHz, 3 MB L3 cache, USD 90.18) and the Pentium G3430 (3.3 GHz, 3 MB L3 cache, USD 100.26). All members of the Pentium line will not support Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost technology.

The Core i3 line will start with Core i3-4130 (3.4 GHz, 3 MB L3 cache, USD 136.85) and will continue with Core i3-4330 (3.5 GHz, 4 MB shared L3 cache, USD 154.75) and Core i3-4340 (3.6 GHz, 4 MB L3 cache). Just like the Pentium line, the new Core i3 products will not have Hyper-Threading or Turbo Boost.

In addition to these chips Intel will unveil a new Core i5-4440 processor (3.1 GHz/3.4 GHz Turbo Boost, no Hyper-Threading, 6 MB shared L3 cache, USD 197.26) and a new Core i7-4771 chip (3.5 GHz/3.9 GHz Turbo Boost, Hyper-Threading, 8 MB shared L3 cache). This chip will sell for USD 333.77.

An interesting fact is that Intel boosts cache sizes on less capable processors. Thus the Pentium line will now have 3 MB of shared L3 cache, up from the current 2 MB offered, while certain members of the Core i3 line will have 4 MB of L3 cache, up from the current 3 MB.
