According to “PCConnection.com” the Intel Haswell i7-4770k and i5-4670k processors are ready to be sold. The new Intel Haswell i7-4770k  has hit the scene quietly and quite unexpectedly.  Online pc parts retailer “PCConnection.com” has the new 4th generation Intel Haswell chips listed as “In Stock” and ready to ship within 24 hours. Good news for some technophiles itching for the newest, shiniest things, but it comes at a steep asking price.

Many sites are claiming the Haswell i7-4770k to be around a 10% increase from Ivy Bridge i7-3770k, which is about what we saw when we went from the Sandy Bridge 2600k to the 3770k. The price tag on the new chip however is currently at $394.82. I don’t know what you imagined this chip would cost, but to me I never expected it to sell above $360, if that. Anyways, if you head over to PCConnection.com you can purchase one right this moment.

Similarly, the i5 4670k is selling for a bit higher than I would have expected, but they are the first small retailer selling it at all so they are probably asking a good $25 premium on the Newegg.com or Microcenter pricing. You can find this too on PCConection selling for $274.07. Then you have to factor in shipping and your options are ground shipping or overnight, so about $13-28.00 shipping depending upon how badly you want to be the first to yield a Haswell. I don’t blame you, I’m itchin’ too now.

I can’t be certain because I haven’t tried the Haswell chips yet, but I would assume that after a few months the early motherboard Bios bugs will be fixed and we will see a larger performance spread between the Intel Haswell i7-4770k and the Ivy Bridge 3770k than the IB previously earned over the Sandy Bridge 2600k. Here’s to hoping anyway!

If you are lucky enough to buy an Intel Haswell i7-4770k and you want to get using it RIGHT NOW, you can snag a small-form Intel motherboard (that’s right, apparently they made an 1150 socket motherboard) to pop it in and have you up and running. The DH87RL MICRO-ATX LGA1150 motherboard can be found at rakuten.com for $104.99. You might want to act fast, because it seems these products are dwindling already. Three motherboards left as I write this!
