Haswell - Computer Definition
The fourth microarchitecture in Intel's Core family of CPU chips, introduced in 2013 and superseding Ivy Bridge. Using the same 22 nm element size of its predecessor, Haswell has improved graphics but more significantly is able to provide comparable CPU performance at lower clock speeds, thereby enabling laptops to run cooler. Haswell was superseded by Broadwell. See Intel Core, microarchitecture, Intel microarchitectures and Broadwell.
