Haswell-E and X99 motherboards launch date listed

The highly expected arrival of the Haswell-E processor, X99 motherboards and DDR4 memory has been scheduled a bit earlier than expected – the new platform will arrive on August 29, instead of sometime in September and hardware enthusiasts will be able to purchase all of it on the same day.

Intel plans to launch three Haswell-E processors – the most powerful one of them will be the Core i7-5960X, which will have eight Haswell cores with Hyper-Threading technology enabled for a total of 16 threads processed at once, 20 MB of L3 cache and 3.0 GHz of clock speed. The chip is expected to cost more than USD 1000. Next we have the Core i7-5930K with six cores under the hood, Hyper-Threading technology for 12 threads processed at once, 15 MB of L3 cache and 3.5 GHz of clock speed. This processor will sell for USD 500-750. The Core i7-4820K is the final chip of the three – it will have six cores but the rest of the specs are unknown. This one will be the cheapest of them all – it will sell for USD 350-450.

A number of X99-based motherboards and DDR4 memory kits have been revealed by now so given you have the money you can make yourself a nice and shiny new Haswell-E system on August 29, which is next week.
