A leaked Intel roadmap by Chinese portal of VR-Zone has spilled the beans of some interesting details of the upcoming Haswell-E Processors which would replace the Ivy Bridge-E platform.
We know that Ivy Bridge-E launches in Q3 2013 and would consist of three SKUs which would be compatible with the current LGA 2011 socket and X79 chipset based motherboards. A year after its launch, the Ivy Bridge-E would be replaced by the Haswell-E platform which brings alot of new developments along with it. Haswell-E would be compatible with the X99 chipset which we heard off a while ago. Not much is known what improvement or key features X99 chipset has to offer but we can point out the addition of SATA Express support with the Haswell-E platform.
Now the most intresting thing about the slide is that while Haswell-E processors would be compatible with LGA 2011 socket, they would also offer compatibility with the new LGA 2013 socket. Now the LGA 2013 socket can be seen mentioned in the slide as (2011-3), now we cant officially say that it would be a new socket so we will have to wait for some official reports. But i guess that since VR-Zone is reporting that Haswell-E would be the first platform to officially bring DDR4 support to consumers, Intel could develop LGA 2013 motherboards with DDR4 DIMMs compatibility while the LGA 2011 socket would restrict users to LGA 2011 socket. Another possibility is that the LGA 2011 socket would feature the X79 chipset which would be backwards compatible with Haswell-E but to gain access to DDR4 support, users would have to move towards the X99 chipset based LGA 2013 motherboards.

Intel Roadmap Confirms X99 Chipset and DDR4 For Haswell-E Processors Compatible WIth Socket LGA 2011-3
Intel’s already released their 2014 roadmap to their product LARs. We got a sneak peek last week and noticed the Haswell stuff as well, but there were no specifics on chipset compatibility.
This was posted yesterday. It is Intel sensitive information which actually hurts all of us to be posted at all. It is demonstrable that leaked advance plans suppress current sales and financially hurt Intel. The results in higher prices for us all in the name of titillating information.
I just read of copy of Intel’s road maps yesterday. They are corporate sensitive information for a reason and it is not “cool” to leak them.
I didn’t leak them, I just said I saw them. We’re all held to Intel’s NDA when we go into these product meetings, so I get it. I provided nothing specific about the information we saw, and to be fair, Haswell’s been on the “hot topic” list for a month now.
I don’t disagree with any of your points, but Intel is the big man on campus. A leak from a Chinese partner isn’t likely to hurt their bottom line enough to make a difference.
I don’t know what any of this means.
I have a hp desktop and laptop and a samsung galaxy 3. presumably the new processors make stuff faster.
I’ve had the desk top and laptop for long enough that i’m tinking of getting new ones.
when do the new computers come out with the new processors?
AMD roadmaps are floating around too.
The products with the chips show up some time AFTER the chips are released.
