Intel launches Core i3 and Pentium chips on Haswell architecture

The second wave of Haswell processors has arrived a bit earlier than expected with chip giant Intel unveiling the budget-oriented Core i3 and Pentium processors on the most progressive, as of now, Haswell architecture.

There are no surprises – the Core i7-4771 tops the list with several Core i5 processors finishing the refreshed mid-to-high end. Intel also has five Core i3 chips, five Pentium processors and two Celeron chips, which occupy the low end of the spectrum. The core number also remains the same – the Celerons and Pentiums have two cores, the Core i3 chips again two cores but with support for Hyper-Threading technology, while the Core i5 and Core i7 processors have four cores but the i7-4771 supports Hyper-Threading and can process 8 threads at once. Pricing ranges from USD 42 for the Celeron G1620T to USD 314 for the Core i7-4771.

The new processors are available now.
