In what has become an annual ritual, the higher-end segment of Intel’s new generation of processors has been launched at the Computex trade show in Taipei. This includes the quad-core versions of what Intel calls the fourth-generation Core i-series, which was until recently known by the code name “Haswell,” and was extensively previewed at CES 2013.
Quad-core CPUs are generally found in higher-end desktops and laptops, and are part of Intel’s i7 CPU line. Most mainstream PCs use Core i3 and i5 dual-core CPUs — the Haswell versions of those are coming later.
For laptop and desktop shoppers, this means some PCs you buy over this summer and beyond will include the fourth-gen chips, although the new parts retain the same Core i3/i5/i7 series names as the previous generations. Adding to the potential confusion, current-gen (and even last-gen) Intel CPUs are more than powerful enough for everyday use, such as Web surfing, HD video playback, social networking, office tasks, and e-mail — so you’re right to ask what the motivation to upgrade is right?
