A leaked chart suggests that Intel plans to release 14 new desktop processors next year based on the 22-nanometer architecture.
The slide was leaked by tech site VR-Zone (translated here) and, if it is genuine, outlines a variety of processors, ranging from a flagship 3.5GHz quad-core Core i7-4770K part that can be turbo boosted to 3.9GHz with a thermal design power (TDP) of only 84 Watts, to a more modest Core i5-4430S 2.7GHz quad-core part that can be turbo boosted to 3.2GHz.
It seems that the on-board graphics have been updated, with mention of a new HD 4600 GPU capable of delivering a maximum of 1250MHz dynamic frequency.
All processors feature a new socket called LGA 1150 -- a replacement for the current LGA 1155/Socket H2 -- and will use the Lynx Point chipset motherboards.
Haswell is the follow-on to Intel's Ivy Bridge architecture, utilizing the same 22-nanometer process but adding updated architecture for better performance.
Last month a report emerged claiming that Intel is planning to release its upcoming 14-nanometer Broadwell architecture processors as a ball grid array (BGA) rather than an land grid array (LGA) package, thereby putting an end to CPU upgrades.
