Intel releases new Haswell chip
The popular processor maker Intel has released a new Haswell processor with lowered power consumption. The new chip is known as Core i5-4460T and comes with four cores that make use of the latest 22 nm technology. As expected this new Core i5 chip does not support Hyper-Threading.
Being a Haswell-based processor the Core i5-4460T comes with support for the LGA 1150 socket and runs at 1.9 GHz (2.7 GHz in Turbo Mode). It also has an integrated DDR3-1333/1600 memory controller (up to 32 GB), integrated Intel HD 4600 graphics (350 – 1100 MHz), Intel VT-x, SpeedStep, Anti-theft and many other Intel processor technologies.
While the new chip looks a lot like any other Haswell chip, the Core i5-4460T is remarkable with its low power consumption. In fact this is the first Intel Haswell processor that makes it into the 35W thermal envelope.
The chip is currently available as a tray version and sells for USD 182. So if you want an energy-efficient Haswell computer, this might be the chip for you.
