Refresh to begin in the second quarter and carry through the third.


Intel will refresh Haswell in 2014 to gradually replace all current processors, but it will be a slow process.

According to a new chart obtained by VR-Zone, Intel will begin the refresh process in the second quarter with the non-K series of chips then move on to the K-series in the third quarter.


Also to note, the Core I7-4770 and Core I7-4771 are set to be retired to be replaced by the Core i7-4790, while the Core i5-4570 and i5-4670 will be replaced by Core i5-4690 and the Core i5-4590.

There will also be new  low voltage processors with “S” and “T” designators in both series.
