First Haswell-E details shared online

The upcoming high-end Intel Haswell-E platform is not a secret to any hardware enthusiast as it was first mentioned months ago but up until now processors for the platform have not been released. What’s known is that every Intel hardware enthusiast will need a new Intel X99 chipset-based motherboard and DDR4 memory but no other details about the CPUs have been released so far.

There’s a new development regarding the chips though as first unofficial information has been leaked online but take this with a grain of salt as specs may change or be fake in the first place. According to this early information there will be three Haswell-E chips at first – the Core i7-5960X, Core i7-5930K and Core i7-5820K. The first processor will have eight true computational cores, while the other two chips will have six processing engines. Caches will range from 15 MB for the “K” processors to 20 MB for the eight-core Core i7-5960X. The processors will run at 3.0 GHz for the Core i7-5960X, 3.5 GHz for the i7-5930K and 3.3 GHz for the i7-5820K. All chips will have TDP of 140 watts and support for DDR4-2133 memory; DDR3 memory will be fully incompatible with the new Haswell-E platform.

Prices have not been mentioned so far but judging from prior history the slowest Core i7-5820K will sell for around USD 300.
