[EXCLUSIVE] Intel 2014 Haswell-E to pack 8 cores, DDR4, X99 PCH and more

LGA 2011-3 Socket

Haswell-E will bring a new version of your same old LGA 2011 socket with it. Dubbed LGA 2011-3, the derived socket has the same dimensions and ball pattern pitch as LGA 2011. Basically, the number of pins remains the same while their layout changes. According to the slides, the new design is more efficient as per Intel’s research, and additional wings in the LGA 2011-3 socket help improve package handling.



Haswell-E is going to be a blast. From what we’ve seen, Intel is putting in a lot of efforts to the last 22nm platform. In short, if you’ve been waiting to replace your current system with Intel’s highest end offerings, Haswell-E is the platform to wait for (and grab, the moment it’s out).
