Intel’s Haswell 4th Generation Processors for Socket LGA 1150 Guide

By September 25, 2018 No Comments

Intel’s Haswell processors succeeded the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge micro-architectures and, since then, have paved the way for Broadwell and Skylake micro-architectures. Haswell processors were announced in 2013 and subsequently launched globally. Haswell CPUs were primarily designed to improve the performance and power savings features of processors working with Intel 8-Series and 9-Series chipsets. Haswell CPUs are compatible with motherboards that have Intel’s Socket LGA 1150.

Haswell Vs Ivy Bridge

Every time Intel releases a new micro-architecture, naturally it is always compared with its preceding version and in this case, Haswell is pitted against Ivy Bridge. Compared to Ivy Bridge processors, Haswell processors have as much as 8% higher vector processing performance, single threaded performance has increased by as much as 6% and so has multi-threaded performance. Sequential CPU performance too has increased by 6%. The average improvement in performance of Haswell processors as compared to Ivy Bridge is around 3%.

There are many features of Ivy Bridge that have been brought forward to Haswell processors. It still features a 22nm manufacturing process, 3D tri-gate transistors, micro-operation cache with storage for 1.5 K micro-operations, 14- to 19-stage instruction pipeline, dual-channel DDR3 memory, and 16 PCI Express 3.0 lanes among others.

There are certain new features in Haswell comparable to Ivy Bridge. Haswell processors come with a larger core with a fourth arithmetic logic unit, second brand prediction unit, third address generation unit, higher cache bandwidth, deeper buffers, and better memory controllers.

Full List of Haswell Processors

If you are looking for a processor capable of playing the latest games at maximum settings, you could do worse than a Haswell chip. Overclocking is possible up to 4.7GHz, although it will be much more stable at around 4.4GHz.
