If you’re looking to upgrade your existing tower with one of the upcoming Haswell processors to take advantage of the new on-board graphics, it looks like you won’t be paying much of an early-adopter tax to Intel at all.

For example, the cheapest 4th-gen chip on the list is the 3.0GHz Core i5-4430, rumored to retail for $175; whereas its likely predecessor, the core i5-3330, has a suggested retail price of around $180, according to Intel. On the other hand, the near top-of-the-line 3.5GHz Haswell Core i7-4770 is expected to retail for $292, while the current chip with similar computing power is going for between $290 and $310. (You can see a more complete list of prices via HotHardware.) Of course, these numbers have not been confirmed by Intel, and discounts have yet to be announced for the current crop of processors, so take these prices with a grain of salt.

VR-Zone also believes Intel will be making the Haswell processors official on June 2, just ahead of Computex in Taipei that takes place between June 4 and 8. That timeline seems to mesh with the mid-year date we’ve heard from Intel so far, so we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears tuned for more updates. ... z2RREN4500
