A web-site has published what it claims to be specifications of the first chips that will belong to the so-called Haswell Refresh product family. Apparently, the new central processing units will not bring any significant performance improvements compared to existing offerings due to the fact that the new chips are only 100MHz faster than existing products.

Sometimes in the second quarter of 2014 the world’s largest chipmaker will introduce four new performance Haswell Refresh products – Core i7-4790, Core i5-4690, Core i5-4590 as well as Core i5-4460 – in addition to one low-power “S” model and two reduced-power “T” models, reports Chinese VR-Zone web-site. The more advanced unlocked Core i7 microprocessor (Core i7-4790K?) is predicted to be made available in Q3 2014.

The higher-performing chips based on Haswell micro-architecture will replace existing processors on the market (e.g., Core i7-4790 will replace both Core i7-4770 and 4771), just like refresh products are supposed to do.

Given that Intel’s “Haswell Refresh” central processing units as well as Intel’s next-generation 9-series core-logic sets due in 2014 are not expected to bring any noteworthy performance improvements and innovations, it is safe to say that only next-generation Broadwell or even Skylake chips will truly boost performance by a significant margin.

Intel did not comment on the news-story.

Can anyone guess what SR , BTS , and HR mean underneath each year in the roadmap graphic?

I did a google search and only came up with a few hits, all of them asking that same question, but no one answering.

Please do not say "HR" is Haswell Refresh, since HR appears in late 2013 as well as late 2014.

SR = Spring Refresh
BTS = Back to School
HR = Holiday Refresh

Just saw this one in Anton's post in Windows Threshold.

Any architectural changes? Maybe not.. Damn.

Haters look pretty foolish.

For the record SB, IB and Haswell all brought approx. 5%-7% gains over each prior model. This is NOT very impressive considering what AMD has been bringing in both CPU and APU gains. Kaveri changes the playing field forever and for good. Intel is losing market share on all fronts and they know it.

Intel is playing catch up. It is 2 years behind in develop of APUs. This is about the lead it had on AMD in CPUs. But it is a new game now.

Its no deference with AMD Trinity and Richland, they gain less 10 percent. but power increase at nearly same percentage

No arm, not amd.

Sandy Bridge was a 15-25% performance per clock improvement over the original Core i series

Ivy Bridge was about 10-15% faster per clock over SB
Haswell is about 3-5% faster per clock over IB and in many cases within 1%

To be honest this is also the fault of AMD for not having any CPU that can fight with the I7 4xxx series. Heck, they cannot even match the performance of I5 in games or single threaded apps, and this is sad. Not to mention very bad for the customers...

Intel is being pushed by M$ to have better tablets. Win8 can't match Android if Intel tablets last onlu 2h in batery.

It's acceptable a laptop last 3h, we carry their charger in their bags. But a tablet is expected to last at least a few days without recharging, and phones at least a week. Nobody use them plugged on wired AC.

Deal with it, Haswell family is meant for ultrabooks and tablets and we'll have to take whatever Intel gives us. And Skylake will probably be aimed for smartphones, so it will be another 4-6 years with no improvement over SandyBridge.

AMD once brought its Opteron die into desktop with its s940. Intel can anytime bring a 6 core CPU into s1150, it's just holding performance.

3 years now! AMD still 2 years behind Intel!
- AMD no 22nm?
- AMD 130 Watts vs Intel SB 95W, IB 77W, HW 84W
- SB/IB/Haswell all 3.5GHz ...AMD 5GHz gets beet by IB wtf lol
