We have talked a lot about Haswell-E in the past already, as it is the next big thing in processor land to happen in 2014. A new roadmap leaked on the Haswell-E is an 8 core CPU series. Conformed now is that with the platform you’ll get DDR4 memory. Quad-channel DDR4 RAM along with increased frequencies could lead to a near 50% increase in bandwidth compared to the older, triple-channel configuration which housed much more conservative RAM clock speeds. The high-end SKU will be priced at 999 USD.
