Although code-named Haswell micro-architecture is tailored for low power consumption, the first chips that Intel Corp. will release on its base will be high-end offerings for desktops and laptops in April, 2013. Just like it happened to previous-generations of Intel Core i-series products, the high-end mobile offerings will not be dramatically slower compared to their desktop brethren.

The first breed of Intel Core i-series 4000-family “Haswell” chips for notebooks will consist of only three models aimed at high-end laptops, according to VR-Zone web-site. The chips will have four cores with Hyprer-Threading technology, will operate at 2.70GHz – 3.0GHz base clock-speeds and can automatically overclock all four cores automatically to 3.50GHz – 3.70GHz frequencies. All chips will have Intel’s highest-performing HD 4600 graphics core.

Considering extreme performance provided by Intel Core i7-4930MX, 4900MQ and 4800MQ central processing units and their 47W – 57W thermal design power, it is likely that they will primarily find them homes insider desktop replacement (DTR) laptops as well as all-in-one (AIO) desktops.

The first Intel Core i-series “Haswell” chips will be released in April, 2013; mainstream solutions powered by Haswell micro-architecture will be launched sometimes in Q3 2013, whereas ultra low-power Haswell products are projected to reach the market in Q4 2013.

Since Intel will barely end-of-life existing Ivy Bridge products as soon as the first Haswell microprocessors reach the market, expect sales of existing advanced notebooks and ultrabooks at discount prices in spring.

4800MQ looks like the quad-core mobile sweet spot. Only 200mhz separates it from the 4930MX in 1-4C Turbo Boost configuration.
