    Haswell is shipping! And the USB bug is confirmed by Intel

    c|net: Intel's next-gen 'Haswell' chip now shipping to PC makers

    c|net: Intel confirms USB bug in 'Haswell' chipset

    BrightSideOfNews: Intel Confirms Haswell Chipset Bug

    According to this Intel will be fixing the Haswell USB bug with a C1->C2 stepping upgrade beginning shipments in mid-July (15th), samples beginning on Apr 19th. FYI.


    EDIT: Personally IDC bc I have hexacore X79 i7-3930K, Haswell-E won't come out until next year, and when it does I read somewhere it will be strictly quad-core. Since Haswell only has about a 10% advantage over SB, do the math, I win with mine!

    Ha! gotta hand it to Intel...they can save money on testing simply by getting the reviewers and testers who are so keen to get their hands on the silicon "first", to do it for them....win win?

    what chipset will haswell be using, since its a new socket? will have a new set or just the lower end (not the x79) ? I want to upgrade from my z68 board has there been any talk about what will replace 2011 and x79? i've looked and haven't really found anything... just thought maybe someones heard something.
