Intel Corp. on Monday began to sell affordable Core i3 and Pentium microprocessors based on the latest Haswell micro-architecture for desktops. The new chips will improve performance of inexpensive and low-power personal computers and will further expand share of chips made using 22nm process technology in Intel’s lineup.

Unlike previous-generation Core i3 “Ivy Bridge” microprocessors, the new Core i3-4000 family “Haswell” products come with 4MB of cache, a 1MB boost that will inevitably improve performance in single-threaded and memory-intensive applications. Traditionally, Intel Core i3 feature two cores with Hyper-Threading technology, the new-generation chips sport Intel HD Graphics, HD Graphics 4400 or HD Graphics 4600. The new Core i3 chips in LGA1150 form-factor will cost from $122 to $149, typical price for performance-mainstream offerings by Intel.

The new Intel Pentium central processing units come with two cores without HT technology, reduced clock-rates compared to Core i3 products, basic Intel HD Graphics adapter as well as 3MB cache. The Pentium chips in LGA1150 package cost from $64 to $86.

In addition to new desktop-class Core i3 and Pentium processors with Haswell micro-architecture, Intel also introduced new mobile versions of chips featuring the same technology.

Intel plans to start selling Haswell-based Celeron chips in Q1 2014.

when it comes to performance per watt intel haswell i7-4770k is exceptionally better than AMD's FX 8350 nearly 70% haswell is going to hit budget market......
so now if anyone asks me waht will i choose between intel and AMD my choice will be A10-6700 over i3-4330(if i don't want discreet gpu).
yes haswell good enough for everyday normal computing

haswell i3-4330 wins here- boots faster.
2.better fps with discreet gpu.
3.some power saving(doesn't matter on desktops coz difference is negligible on power bill)
4. in bechmark i3 is better than A10-6700.

A10 6700 wins here-
1.almost all premium instructions.
2.better virtualization.
3.much better encryption. heavy softwares like siemens NX, catia,inventor A10-6700 flushes even haswell i7.
5. youtube videos buffer faster.
6.can run any AAA game smoothly on decent resolution again flushes out haswell i7.
7. newer version of media softwares are better on A10 like sony vegas pro.
8.AMD Steady Video Technology.
9.AMD Radeon Dual Graphics just buy a HD7730 and enjoy performance of HD7750.
10.AMD Eyefinity.
11. "NEVER SETTLE" -one free AAA title.
12. much better REAL-WORLD PERFORMANCE(i tested personally).

so in short buy haswell i3 only if u want to save some watts or if u blindly believe on benchmarks.actually all websites uses superpie which tailored for intel only,cinebench which is fined for giving better result to intel cpu etc....
so frnds don't belive on benchmarks blindly real thing is real world performance where amd apu's are the best all round package,and yes in discreet gpu segment i personally recommend intel i5,i7 cpu over amd FX coz 40%better performance and almost half power consuption.

I would buy A6 which mostly we recommend for low cost computers.

But if they decide to add discrete well chose I3 and AMD HD 6500 series or 6700

my choice is HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 avilable at 80 bucks only and gives exceptionally better performance than 6700 also it supports TressFX,much better compute DX11.1,future AAA games will work much better than 6700 and the best part is it will support DX11.2 later this year.

Lets not forget that AMD APU with GPU disabled (Athlons x4)costs 30-40 USD dollar less, while Intel I5 with GPU disabled (P suffix), costs the dam same.

So AMD athlons 740 and 750 and more recently 760K, can be found for 90 USD

and pair that with HD 7750/7770/7790, and you can build youself a pweorfull computer for ~400 USD.
