Intel plans to release two high performance mobile Haswell chips

It seems that by the end of the year Haswell’s true power will have come to notebooks as well. To make that happen Intel plans to release at least two high performance mobile Haswell chips with the first two being Core i7-4850HQ and Core i7-4950HQ.

Both chips will be based on the Haswell architecture and will have four cores, 6 MB L3 cache and will have support for Hyper-Threading technology, Turbo Boost, Trusted Execution Technology and VT-d. Another common feature for both chips will be the integrated HD 5200 GPU (GT3), which runs at base clock of 200 MHz but goes up to 1300 MHz in case of need.

The Core i7-4850HQ will run at 2.3 GHz, while the i7-4950HQ will operate at 2.4 GHz base speed with Turbo Boost bringing the chips as high as 3.5 GHz and 3.6 GHz respectively. Both processors will have TDP of 47 watts and are expected in Q3 2013.

Pricing as of now is unknown.
