Intel's fourth generation processors, Core Haswell, missed an expected CES launch, but word on the street is that we will see Haswell at Computex Taipei later this year.
As it turns out the official launch of the processor line has been set for June with a press conference taking place just a few days ahead of Computex Taipei 2013, the largest tech trade show in Asia. The press conference will announce the processors downstream partners and maybe layout the new processor line.
The Haswell architecture is designed specially to optimize the power savings and performance benefits from the move to FinFET transistors on the improved 22nm process node. Intel is optimistic about the new chips, estimating them to make up 14-16 percent of its CPU shipments by the end of Q3 2013.
