Intel's Haswell chips have been quite well-recieved. According to DigiTimes, Intel will be expanding its Haswell line-up with new processors in September. The report states that the company will be unveiling 13 new processors for desktops and 24 for notebooks.
Intel has separated its mobile processors in several categories, which includes the M series mainstream chips, H series high-performance chips and Y and U series for low power-consumption chips.
Despite its expansion of Haswell, Intel won't be abandoning its previous-generation Ivy Bridge chips. The company will be bringing out four Ivy Bridge chips in September. The company is also expected to unveil its Bay Trail T platform chips for tablets, M platform for entry-level notebooks and D platform for entry-level desktops.
New Haswell chips coming soon
Intel had launched its Haswell chips back in June. In contrast to the buzz regarding the launch, Intel has made relatively modest microarchitecture improvements with Haswell, especially when compared to Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge release, which is the name given to 22nm shrunk die of the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture based on 3D transistors.
The release was in line with Intel’s ‘tick-tock’ product development and release strategy adopted since 2007. Every 'tick' is a shrinking of process technology of the previous microarchitecture and every 'tock' is a new microarchitecture. Intel’s Sandy Bridge microarchitecture, introduced in early 2011, was a ‘tock’ built using a 32nm manufacturing process, the Haswell release too is a ‘tock’ and it uses the 22nm manufacturing process as Ivy Bridge.
