Intel Haswell-E i7 5960X, i7 5930K and i7 5820K pricing revealed

While we are very close to Second Generation Maxwell architecture announcement, Intel is also preparing for a big launch on August 29th. Today we are going to talk about CPUs.

Haswell-E is just around the corner, and I know many of are planning to replace both CPU and GPU at the same time. For that reason I thought you might be interested in pricing of the new platform.

Intel i7 / X99 Haswell-E pricing:

  • Intel Core i7 5960X 8C/16HT – 40-lane PCI-Express support (x16 + x16 + x8) — $999 
  • Intel Core i7 5930K 6C/12HT – 40-lane PCI-Express support (x16 + x16 + x8) — $583
  • Intel Core i7 5820K 6C/12HT — 28-lane PCI-Express support (x16 + x8 + x4) —– $389

Intel i7 5820K looks like sweet spot for single high-end graphics card owners. Now, if you own two high-end cards, or you’re planning to upgrade your rig to CrossFire or SLI, then you should think about i7 5930K, as it will offer two x16 PCI-E lanes. It probably won’t change much in terms of performance, but it’s always good to know you are squeezing all juice from your beloved cards.

My first ever CPU was Intel 486DX and I still use it to this day… as a key chain…

Enjoy the slides.
