Intel's next-gen 'Haswell' chip now shipping to PC makers

Intel logoIntel's "Haswell" chip is now shipping to major PC makers, a source close to the company told CNET today.

Intel's fourth-generation core, aka Haswell, is "shipping to customers now and will launch later this quarter," the source said.

Intel is expected to make a statement to this effect at the IDF Beijing conference next week.

Haswell, expected by June, is the next-generation mainstream Intel processor that will power ultrabooks and a variety of hybrids that straddle tablet and laptop designs. Haswell's new microarchitecture will deliver "the single largest generation-to-generation battery life improvement in Intel history," according to a recent statement from Intel CEO Paul Otellini.

Intel is also expected to reiterate that its next-generation Atom chip for smartphones, "Merrifield," will be shipping to customers by the end of the year.

And "Bay Trail," its next-gen Atom chip for tablets, will be in products by that time too.

The quad-core Bay Trail chip is Intel's "most powerful Atom processor to date" and "doubles the performance of the current tablet chip, 'Clover Trail+,'" according to recent statements from the company.

Both Bay Trail and Merrifield are based on an overhauled Atom microarchitecture that uses out-of-order execution, not unlike Intel's mainstream Core processors.
