On the 21st of July 2012 Intel released the 3rd Generation Intel Core™ i7-3770 Processor, commonly known of the ‘Ivy Bridge’ Processor. This breakthrough in computer technology was the finest of its time. But in the small space of just under a year, Intel have announced their latest core processor, the 4th-Gen core processor and also the Motherboard, code named as the ‘Haswell’ has been announced to be released early June 2013.
The Haswell chip’s functions seem to be revolved mostly around increased battery life, it has been that the chips capabilities could bring the battery life of equipment such as laptops, convertibles, detachables and tablets to up to 2 times the battery life they had with the use of a previous processor. Though the increasing innovative breakthroughs seem to be directed greatly towards equipment such as these, desktops computers will also be affected by Intel’s latest product. The Haswell is supposed to greatly improve graphics performance, aiming the market toward the dominant and vast spectrum of computer gamers. The gravity of the improvement of graphic performance has been expressed as being three times as powerful as the 3rd-Gen Ivy Bridge Chip, though this statistic is mostly dominant in desktop setups. Laptops and Ultrabook will experience a boost in graphics capabilities but not quite as significant as that of the desktop users.
Furthermore the Haswell is said to enable high definition gaming and video playback, the power of the chip alone should reduce the need for a separate graphics card
in most cases. As well as this, The Haswell chip will enable Laptops to play 4k video, the Ultra High Definition running on 3840×2160 pixels as opposed to the traditional 1080p.
With the chip is the release of the Haswell Motherboard, though dis similarly to the Core Processors, the motherboard is predicted to only be marginally better than the Ivy Bridge Chip.
Again it is based dominantly on integrated graphics and power saving features rather than any significant increases in the CPU’s capabilities.
The chip will most likely be used for hectic overclocking, enabling users to run the quickest games ‘n’ stuff. Head shots are foretasted to increase by roughly 87%, as the chip’s Auto-Aim feature deploys and integrates directly with First Person Shooter games.
