By , source: WCCFtech

WCCFtech reports that Intel's plans on the Haswell-E platform has been confirmed by an informal source. Though the confirmation provides little new information, it does give a good impression of what we can expect out of Intel's next generation of high-end processors.

The Haswell-E Extreme Exition processors will have eight cores, which doubles to 16 threads thanks to HyperThreading technology. The CPUs will debut simultaneously with the new X99-chipset, which supports DDR4-memory with a standard frequency of 2133 MHz. The chipset will also provide USB 3.0 functionality, 10x SATA 6 Gbit/s, Turbo Boost 2.0 and PCI-Express 3.0.

Haswell-E will be available as both a K- and X-version, with the latter having a recommended price of $999. Intel will officially introduce the new high-end processors during Computex 2014, with a public release slated for the third quarter.
