Report: Intels Haswell-E Processor to Support DDR4 Memory

By - Source: Fudzilla | B 4 comments

The upcoming ultra high-end Haswell-E processor will reportedly have support for DDR4 RAM.

Intel is reportedly developing an ultra high-end processor that they've codenamed "Haswell-E." It will replace the Ivy Bridge-E, a CPU that hasn't even been released yet but is expected to arrive in Q3 2013.

According to Fudzilla, the Haswell-E will have from 12 to 16 cores, a TDP of 130 W, and support for DDR4 memory that promises to deliver exponentially more bandwidth than previous generations of processors.

Given that none of these details have been finalized and that DDR4 memory is still far from being finalized or produced, we're somewhat skeptical of this report and are interested in seeing how much of it actually turns out to be true.

    Major errors in this article. DDR4 HAS been finalized; JEDEC released the final specification in September 2012. Production of DDR4 began in the second half of 2012. DDR4 DIMMs were demoed in early 2013, and will be sold beginning in late 2013 (for servers, since no consumer boards will support DDR4 at that time).

    12-16 cores? Ye gods! What would you even use them for?!

    Apparently the new The PlayStation 4 is coming out and sporting DDR5 mem. isnt 5 better than 4? (One of you Ram guys mind taking this one?) The dinosaurs were not yet thriving back in Triassic when Graphic Cards implemented DDR5, with the Radeon HD 4870, which i think was the first to do so(ok, June 25, 2008, so no dinosaurs). You can argue it's not much of a boost given our current CPUs, or not economically feasible(yeah, thanks) for a PC build, but given my interest for iGPUs you can understand my, um, ...sourness.
