Intel is expected to unveil its next-generation Haswell processors in Q2 2014, as well as the new 9-series chipset. The new Haswell refresh will be concentrated on the desktop side of things, with over 20 different SKUs being made available.

The new CPUs will have higher clock speeds, with the new high-end Core i7-4790 being clocked at 3.6GHz. MSI has stepped up to the plate early, announcing that all of its current 8-series motherboards will support the new Haswell processors. With over 20 motherboards on the market, this gives MSI an interesting position in the market, as it will release new 9-series motherboards, but support the new processors on its current motherboards, too.
