    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.

    It would be great to see how long it took apple to adopt each architecture. Love the images by the way

    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
