    "...Haswell chips are actually up for pre-order on some online retailers..."

    [ARM thought they had until June to start worrying about Haswell crushing their stock price. Think again...]

    Intel's new "Haswell" chip design is just around the corner. But we're already getting a peek at finished products, courtesy of a German PC vendor.

    High-end laptops with Intel's upcoming fourth-generation Core series of chips appeared on DevilTech's site, according to Heise online.

    Unannounced Intel silicon in those rigs includes quad-core Core i7s, such as the 4800MQ and 4900MQ.
    And speaking of leaks, Haswell chips are actually up for pre-order on some online retailers.

    For those who follow Intel chip rollouts closely, the chipmaker usually debuts quad-core mobile chips first and then follows up with more conventional laptop silicon, then, a bit later, the most power-efficient variants.

    Haswell is a brand new microarchitecture that is expected to be announced formally in June.

    Compared with third-generation Ivy Bridge processors, Haswell will boast a much faster graphics processing unit (GPU) and slightly faster central processing unit (CPU).

    Intel has said in the past that Haswell is the company's first mainstream system-on-a-chip because it integrates most of a PC's core processing functions on one chip.
