Intel Releases Newest Wave Of Haswell Processors
Written by Andrew Moynihan on 03 September 2013 at 10:08

Intel have just released another wave of processors for both their mobile and desktop lines, padding out the i3/i5/i7 series with more processors featuring the HD4000+ integrated graphics.

The Celeron and Pentium lines also got a few more processors, and all of the lines are getting mobile CPUs with the -U and -Y suffix, showing off impressively low thermal design power(TDP)...

Intell Haswell i7 Processor

Of note in the release is that, as of Haswell, all Core i3 processors now support AES instructions, and use the HD 4000+ series of onboard graphics. Combined with that, the i3-43XX series is using a 4MB L3 cache, along with HD 4600 graphics.

On the mobile side, the -U and -Y lines were fleshed out; both sets feature the System on a Chip architecture, with 2 cores - Hyperthreading is also enabled for the Core iX series.

The -U CPUs feature the HD 4400 graphics, which runs at 1100MHz, and range from the 1.4GHz Celeron 2955U all the way up to the Core i7-4600U, running at 2.1GHZ with 3.3GHZ Turbo. All of the -U line runs at just 15W TDP, making them very light for mobile devices.

Not as light as the -Y range however, which runs at a paltry 11.5W. To compensate, the onboard graphics is only an 850MHz HD 4200, with processor speeds ranging from the Pentium 3560Y at 1.2GHz, to the Core i7-4610Y at 1.7GHz (2.9GHz Turbo).

Preliminary pricing puts the -U and -Y lines at a fairly expensive price point, with the cheapest offering (the Celeron 2955U) going for $132; the Core i5-4300Y is priced at $304, a hefty sum. Here's the full list of the released processors:

OWAIT, i3-4340 running at 3.6GHz ??!! coool =Đ
i5-4440 seems as very low, with only 3.1GHz, and i7-4771 with 3.5GHz nothing awesome :P

I don't like it when i5s and i7s have two cores… why don't they just keep it simple just like in the desktop area?
But Intel has really closed the gap with AMD APUs with these new integrated graphics cards, though at a big price…

because desktop i5 is useless architecture which Intel uses only in desktop gaming segment,
in laptops i5 is underclocked desktop i3
and i7 if doesn't include "Q" in name is underclocked desktop i3 again,
all that is Intel's trick to fool customers, that's why Game-Debate is here to help =Đ

Agree with tzzsmk… I originally wanted laptop with simple i3-3120M but I got this i5-3210M one instead as the dealer Orient Tech - is a client of my auditing firm and they got me it cheap… But I must say this i5 is awesome… It can consistently maintain the turbo-frequency of 1100 MHZ on the HD 4000 and it also has t-junction of 105 Celsius vs 95 for i3… But by far the greatest disadvantage of my i5-3210M over i3-3120M is greater power consumption… But my laptop still gives 5 to 6 hour battery backup so no worries… The dual core i7s laptop CPUs are however, a total waste of money…

also the power consumption shouldn't be that higher, even my lappy i7-3630QM has power consumption of about 6W when idle watching videos/browsing web :Đ

My B490 is very frugal when it comes to power consumption… It also runs very cool… It is a very thick and bulky laptop - this has allowed Lenovo to put in a biga$$ cooling system in there and air flow is very good…

I'm interested in seeing how the Haswell desktop i3s might hold up to say a Sandy bridge i5…

Not much, haswell have only small performance gain compared to ivy or even sandy briddge. That means any 4 core sandy is much better than haswell i3

Then what Haswell only has much much better iGPU only…? This will benefit only like budget laptop buyers then with say a Haswell i5 mobile CPU and iGPU…
