    Article: The Evolution of Intel's Core i Processors


    With the recent arrival of Intel's 4th generation Core i "Haswell" CPUs, we thought we'd take a look back at the evolution of the consumer based Core i series. It's been quite a journey over the last few years!

    Your missing Bloomfield. Bloomfield, Clarkdale & Lynnfield are all in the first Core i microarchitecture, codename Nehalem.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nehale...oarchitecture)

    Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge are both in the second Core i microarchitecture with the Sandy Bridge codename
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Bridge

    The Haswell line of parts, is the first in the third Core i microarchitecture that is also named Haswell.

    Yea it was based on the 1156, 1155, and 1150 desktop sockets, ie the 1st-4th generation "consumer" series. The 1366 and 2011 sockets weren't included.

    Thanks! This means there is an average of 127.6 days from release that apple will release a compatible OSX

    By my calculation then, we will see Haswell support on:

    Wednesday, 27th November
