Intel shows system with DDR4, Haswell-E

In an attempt to show hardware muscles chip giant Intel has demonstrated a fully functional computer with DDR4 memory and a Haswell-E processor.

The event has taken place at Intel Developer Forum last week where Intel has demonstrated an “Intel DDR4 reference test platform”. Unfortunately the company has said nothing about the working frequencies of the memory and the processor inside but given the hardware specs the machine must have utilized the Intel Wellsburg chipset, also known as X99.

The first mass quantities of DDR4 memory are expected next year where they will power high-end servers gradually coming down to consumer systems. As to the Haswell-E processors and the X99 chipset – they are also expected next year, most likely at the end of 2014. Haswell-E will pack eight computational cores and a quad-channeled memory controller.
