Haswell Is Here!

June 2, 2013

Intel 4th generation Haswell CPUs and a large selection of compatible motherboards hit the shelves this morning and are available for purchase from several retailers. To see prices and add them to your part lists, check them out here:

As with other CPUs and Motherboards on the site, PCPartPicker provides automatic compatibility guidance to make sure your CPU and motherboard are compatible.

Everyone is saying to not upgrade from sandy or ivy to this. But what should i get if i am not upgrading? No one reccomends one over the other people just say it is not worth the upgrade.

Get a better GPU if you have to spend the money. The performance increase really isn't worth it unless you're really concerned with energy.

ugh that's not what i said. i currently do not have anything to upgrade from. just a laptop. its either haswell or ib for a STARTER not an upgrade.

I would stick with Haswell. It has introduced a new socket, 1150, which means you have the option to upgrade to Intel's next release (the tick in this cycle). There are no upgrades coming for 1155/Ivy Bridge. It's up to you though - Ivy Bridge is still a little cheaper at the moment.

@ logger, but I think 1150 will end with Skywell. So unless one is planning on upgrading to Broadwell.....

Intel seems to be sticking with each socket for only two processor lines these days... Broadwell should still use 1150, but I expect Intel will switch to a new socket for Skywell.

I'm in a similar situation (Currently operating on an old Socket 739 Athlon64 in one PC and LGA775 Presler model, Pentium D 930 in another) looking to build a new PC.

My initial intention was to definitely go with Haswell as I didn't expect such a big price difference between the two, but now I'm not sure. Haswell obviously has some performance upgrades over IvyBridge, but are they worth the extra price?

The bigger difference in my mind is the platform change. In the end you have to ask yourself, "Do I want to build my new PC on a dead socket and thereby limit my upgrade-ability or pay a little more but have the potential to upgrade just the CPU but not MB at a later date?"

A lot of high powered build on haswell with overclocking will easily exceed 1200 watts, could you add support for cases with dual PSU support

  • 79 months ago

There are reliable psu out there that are more than 1200 watts.

That's not what Adam asked though, is it?

  • 79 months ago

I was suggesting that instead of using multiple PSU. He seemed to believe 1200 watts was the most a psu could output.

Yeah, I misunderstood your (quite legitimate) post. I apologize.

No problem.

Are you going to add the GTX 700 series anytime soon? EDIT: Just checked its there now.

Microcenter had the nerve to raise the i7-3770k's price instead of lowering it like they should...

  • 79 months ago

Same with the i5-3570k =/

  • 79 months ago

Well, they DID say the lower i5-3570k price would expire in numerous ads...

Bad time to have it expire though.

The Gigabyte G1 series needs to be added for Haswell.

Yes, the Snipers need to be added when you get a moment. Awesome work.

Please add the Xeon-E3 V3, those are compatible with socket lga 1150 boards. Here is the Xeon 1230 v3 @ newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116906&Tpk=xeon%201230%20v3&IsVirtualParent=1

There's the A4-4000, but I believe that's it for now. You can find it here:

Meh. I'm in my return period for my motherboard and processor (Ivy Bridge). Reviews hasn't been favorable...at least on the desktop side.

Any update of when the newer Corsair Vengeance Pro RAM will be on the site?

  • 78 months ago

I think part of it is also inflation.

Philip, you added the Sniper M5 board wrong. The site says it has a maximum of 2W TDP.

Yow. Thanks for letting me know. Should be fixed now.

  • 78 months ago

Thank you for fixing it, I was completely confused when the part picker said it was incompatible with the 4770K until I read the note.

Is the Geforce GTX-760 graphics card a good partner with the Haswell i7-4770k CPU? Also will a EVGA/Gigabyte/MSI version of Geforce graphics card work on an ASUS motherboard or does that depend on what PCI version it is regardless of manufacturer?

When Skywell is out the cheapest i7 will be $1000 intel is out of control with their pricing.

I don't think there is sufficient information for me to be able to provide guidance one way or the other regarding Haswell and PSU compatibility for low power states. There does appear to be a viable workaround with disabling the power states via the BIOS, but to be honest the issue sounds like speculation at this point. (I'm also a little skeptical of the article for raising concerns that might mean a new PSU purchase, while only explicitly naming/linking to a single manufacturer.)
