Intel confirms 4th gen ‘Haswell’ processor to appear at Computex

We all knew this was coming, but today it’s now official. The folks from Intel took to their social network channels to tease a countdown to their next Intel Core processors. The 4th generation chip that’s known as ‘Haswell’ that will be powering laptops, ultrabooks and hybrid portable devices moving forward. That countdown ends this summer on June 3rd.

Posting the image you see above to Twitter, Intel teases that in approximately 3,337,200,000,000,000 nanoseconds Intel will reveal their hotly anticipated 4th gen Intel Core processor to the world. Basically right at the beginning of Computex 2013, where we’ll see loads of Haswell powered hybrid PCs and more.

Haswell hasn’t been much of a secret, and earlier this month we confirmed Intel had already started shipping Haswell to an array of PC manufacturers. Haswell promises to bring a major boost in performance and more importantly battery life over Ivy-bridge for all those ultra-portables.

Around the same time we are also expecting to see Windows Blue show its face, so this years Computex is looking to be a pretty exciting event. We all knew the chip was coming but now all you enthusiasts can circle a time around June 3rd on your calendar and start getting ready for the onslaught of Haswell based systems. We could even see a few Android-based systems too, so stay tuned.
