Haswell-E uses a Soldered Thermal Interface

Reports are coming in that the IHS of Intel's upcoming Haswell-E CPUs is Soldered. Haswell-E could be an overclocking beast!



Read more on Intel using a Soldered IHS on Haswell-E CPUs here

Nice find

1 thing that worries me about the 5960x is it's base clock, 3 jiggaherz is awfully low

I initially thought that but then again 8 whole solid 100% thorough bred cores, now that's yummy! and I bet with not much tinkering would hit 4.0 - 4.2Ghz.

Yeah, but if we can overclock it well it doesn't really matter.

They need to keep it lower to keep power consumption and heat down. Business users who need the CPU will use the 8 cores which will remove the disadvantage of the lower clocks.

Seems like a very good idea from Intel. Hopefully we can look forwards to this with Broadwell.

True, Like Intels first 6 core CPU which was also an Extreme variant, This is a beta to see how well it does in the market, The generation afterwards will hopefully have an 8 core in the K segment, 6930K 8 Core, I hope anyway

Yes 3.0 GHz is quite low by enthusiast standards nowadays, but remember this is an 8-core CPU so it will produce more heat at the same clock speed than it's 6-core counterparts. That being said 3 GHz is a little low considering similar Xeon E5 parts go up to 3.4 Ghz currently.

Like the Xeon version - its another speed binning excersise - 8 cores all working right are easier to bin at 3GHz than 4GHz

Expect faster versions later, remeber GHz isnt what the 2011 socket is about. If youre a n0000b and just see GHz buy the mainstream 1150 stuff..... or even worse..... AMD

But, The benchmarks require the Jiggaherzizz !!!
