Intel to release cheaper Haswell chips in September

A document that is closely related to Intel has revealed that the chip giant plans to introduce cheaper Core i3 and Pentium processors on the Haswell architecture this September. Previously these chips were expected at the end of 2013 or in early 2014.

According to this unofficial document the cheaper members of the Haswell family will arrive on September 1, 2013. The new list of chips will include Core i7-4771, Core i5-4440, Core i5-4440S, Core i3-4340, Core i3-4330, Core i3-4330T, Core i3-4130, Core i3-4130T, Pentium G3430, Pentium G3420, Pentium G3220, Pentium G3420T and Pentium G3220T processors. At the same time Intel will also release a bunch of Ivy Bridge processors – the Core i5-3340, Core i5-3340S, Celeron G1630, Celeron G1620 and Celeron G1620T.

The catch in the whole story is that only Asian customers will get the new Haswell chips on September 1. Customers in North America and Europe will have to wait until September 29 to obtain these chips.
