Intel’s next generation CPU line-up codenamed Haswell has been leaked by VR-Zone. The next generation CPUs are being built using Intel’s new 22nm manufacturing process that makes the die wildly smaller and also is expected to make the CPUs more power efficient. The leak suggests Intel will have 14 CPU SKUs ranging across the Core i5 and i7 tiers. These CPUs will utilize Intel’s latest CPU socket – LGA 1150 on Lynx point chipset motherboards and split into standard six power SKUs and eight low power SKUs.

Intel’s flagship will be the quad-core i7-4770K which will have a clock speed of 3.50GHz. This power will also be spread across eight threads and it will have a boost speed of 3.9GHz with a 8MB cache. The on-die graphics unit to HD 4600 with 1,250MHz dynamic max frequency. Notably, the TDP boost increases to 84W across the standard power range from 77W that is in the current Ivy Bridge chipset. Also Read - Top 5 affordable laptops for basic video editing/casual gaming
All the new i7 Haswell chips will be quad-core CPUs with eight threads and a 8MB of cache. On the other hand, all the i5 models will also be quad-core but these will have four threads and a 6MB of cache. Consumers will be able to pick a CPU with clock speeds between 2.0 to 3.1GHz.
