I received mine in the mail today

Confirmed: Intel Core i7 “Haswell” processors have begun shipping

Consider this a confirmation of our story the other day that “Haswell” processors have begun shipping – I received my Intel Core i7 4770 “Haswell” chip in the mail today. The photo above was taken not twenty minutes ago and originated from a warehouse in PA by a place called Eerie Computers.

Unfortunately, because Haswell isn’t set to actually launch until early June I have no way of testing it or benchmarking, however if there’s any indication that an official launch is close at hand, this is it.

Update 05/17 @ 6:10 PM EST: For those asking, my specific Haswell identifies as being from Batch # L306B433.
