I had read some time ago that Intel had planned to do a tiered release of Haswell chips - the 1st one they did earlier this year, and I had heard of a 2nd one (with a subsequent price-lowering on existing chips) around now, supposedly.
Does anyone know where I can read up on what the supposed plans are for this 2nd release? Has it already happened? My Google searching skills have failed me in finding info on this.
The only thing directly to a new batch was the i7 4771 that was mostly because the 4770 and 4770K had different 100mhz difference, so intel was releasing this sku to have a similar CPU to the top of their line, just without overclocking.
Now new releases have happened, as they usually Intel only release their Quads on launch, dual cores i3/Pentiums were released on September, and we should see dual an single core Celerons on early 2014.
Now a replacement for the 4770K i never read that it was on the works on haswell, like new iteration still on the same 22nm, but who knows.... intel likes to release new refreshes on laptops with 100mhz speed bumps. Or like they did with the 2600K and 2700K, didnt happen with the 3770K though, i doubt it will happen with haswell, broadwell is getting closer, which will be haswell on 14nm?? i dont remember, so if you can wait 6-7 months we will see replacements all across the board.
