When it comes March-June 2013

Although it won't show up until sometime in March-June next year, there has been a lot of info regarding Intel's Ivy Bridge successor known under the "Haswell" codename. Now, managed to score a new set of specs, revealing more details about the integrated GPU part and its support for DirectX 11.1, OpenCL 1.2 as well as the Auto-Stereoscopic 3D (AS3D) feature.

The feature for the iGPU starts with "significant 3D and media performance increase and auto-stereoscopic 3D (AS3D) that will bring decent Blu-Ray 3D acceleration. The new iGPU part will also have support for DirectX 11.1 and OpenGL 3.2 as well as support for OpenCL 1.2 that will help to speed up certain tasks with GPGPU-optimized applications. According to the slide, Intel's Haswell will also be able to drive up to three independent displays via HDMI 1.4, DVI, DP and VGA, although VGA (D-Sub) will be available via Lynx Point chipset since all digital display outputs will be wired directly to the CPU.

Details regarding Haswell are literally pouring but we are still over a year away from the official launch as according to the latest leaked roadmaps, Haswell is scheduled to be launch sometime in March-June 2013.
