Intel lists Haswell-E pricing

There are just 3 days left until the launch of the all-new Intel Haswell-E/X99/DDR4 high-end platform and many hardware enthusiasts are already waiting for the first Haswell-E chips to hit the market. We almost know all details of the new chips except one crucial thing – pricing.

Now this changes too – Intel has officially listed the prices of the upcoming Haswell-E generation and here they are – the Core i7-5820K will sell for USD 390, the Core i7-5930K will cost you USD 583, while the top Core i7-5960X will retail for USD 999.

The official clock speeds have also been listed – the junior Core i7-5820K will run at 3.3 GHz (3.6 GHz Turbo), the Core i7-5930K will operate at 3.5 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) and the Core i7-5960X will run at 3.0 GHz (3.5 GHz Turbo).

There are some interesting details on the flagship Core i7-5960X too – the chip will have 2.2 billion transistors and a CPU die that measures 17.6 x 20.2 mm. When compared to the old Core i7-4960X flagship, Intel says the new i7-5960X will be 20 per cent faster when working with Ultra HD content, 32 per cent faster when rendering 3D objects and 14 per cent faster when working with game physics.

Intel will also release a service-free liquid cooling system for the new chips. The cooling system will be called Intel TS13X and will have a 120 mm cooling fan that will spin at 800-2200 rpm, producing noise between 21-35dBa. The cooling system will sell for USD 85-100.
