Intel's 4th gen processor codename: Haswell offers superior performance over the previous generation Ivybridge by up to 10% clock for clock. This astounding performance boost results in performance improvements in multi-tasking, encoding, gaming and multithreaded applications. Intel's 4th generation processor has improved PCI-Lane 3.0 bandwidth which helps further boost performance of latest generation 3 graphics cards for the ultimate gaming experience.
For overclocking enthusiasts, Intel's 4th gen CPU has improved memory overclocking support, with up to and beyond 3000MHz possible with the very best memory kits. Memory bandwidth is critically important to Haswell compared to previous generations. High frequency memory performance significantly improves encoding, gaming and benchmarking tasks.
The biggest leap in Intel's Haswell processor is the on-board graphics which is now up to 2.6x faster than previous HD4000 found in the Ivybridge CPU. What this means is these latest processors can actually play the latest games in HD with low/medium settings applied. Of course if you want to experience True HD gaming at maximum details then a dedicated graphics card is still a must.
There are two words in your vocabulary that should never meet—Game and Over. You love playing, and you love winning, so you demand unmatched performance, the ability to customise your rig, and features that put you in control of the action. With Intel technology, you step into a heart-pounding experience. Pick up your weapon, challenge your friends, and experience gaming at its best—because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you’ll do with it.
As a creative force and a professional, you must continually balance your vision with the deadlines of the real world. Intel technology helps you keep up with your creativity with unmatched and customisable performance, and feature’s that give you full control to optimise your workflow and maximise your productivity. So keep imagining, keep creating, and take your inspiration to the limit—because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you’ll do with it.

DISPATCH ESTIMATE THURSDAY 18 JULY 2013 - SUNDAY 28 JULY 2013
DELIVERY ESTIMATE MONDAY 22 JULY 2013 - WEDNESDAY 31 JULY 2013
The problem is that I already have been charged, I mean, I have already paid for something that hasn't been sent yet, and it's not going to be dispatched until at least the 18th of July, in 16 days, and in 26 days in the worst case scenario, almost a month in advance!
What's the trick? Amazon has changed the status of the order to "Dispatching Now", and the estimates are the same, it seems that Amazon do need cash, so they charge you for your orders, even when the order isn't supposed to be dispatched in 15-30 days. And they are going to be "dispatching now" my order for almost a month.
I am beginning to look for alternatives to Amazon, I think they are getting too much power and market dominion, and they are beginning to do what they please.
Actually, there's no way to complain other than this, I have searched the web site and there is no other way to complain, I can only complain about the dispatching once I have received the order, and I can only tick three check boxes.
It's a pity

It is passively cooled and decodes all video formats with ease.
It even can interpolate 1080p video footage to 60fps with SVP (Smooth Video Project - google it), which is very heavy on CPU+GPU. I use the integrated graphics and its fine.
I have never had any problems with it, unlike the 4670K in my server. I am very happy with the reliability and uptime of this processor.
I've found that the integrated graphics in this i5 can more than handle what I need, and I don't need the graphics card. I use it as a sort of half workstation/half media center. I have a main screen on my desk (1366x768) and a second 1280x720 monitor, as a workstation. But at the push of a button (on an HDMI switcher,) I can switch the secondary monitor to my 1080p screen in my living room to stream netflix and such.
The old parts could hardly run quickbooks, let alone a youtube video. Now it can do so much more, using less than 200W of power!
Just upgraded from an older Nehalem series Intel Core i5 and the difference is awesome!
Much much faster, idle temp down at least 10C from the previous one using a stock cooler.
Couple that with the faster DDR3 that i bought with it and this thing is blazing!
This CPU running the new "Haswell" architecture is blazing fast, miles ahead of my older i3-3220. If I would have waited a few months I would have bought this for myself as it was only about $80 more than mine.
This is paired up with a Gigabyte Z87 (GA-Z87-D3HP) motherboard and 6 gigabytes of RAM which is plenty for what they need.
Basically all they do on the computer is surf the web, money management and occasionally my dad will edit some pictures. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone wanting a balance of speed and value, AMD still has a better value/performance ratio but I'd choose Intel any day simply because of personal preference.
Closest comparison with AMD is the 8350 and I have both.
If you are planning on gaming, the future titles that are ported from the consoles then go with the 8350, but if you run a lot of older games that use single core and newer multi cores then you want the 4430.
Another note: The AMD 8350 runs loads hotter and pulls a lot more power, Still a good CPU though.
