4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® Communications Chipset 89xxCC Series

Formerly Glen Forest (Haswell Mobile + Cave Creek)

Manufactured on industry-leading 22nm process technology with 3D tri-gate transistors, these 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors are based on the Intel® microarchitecture codenamed Haswell. The introduction of Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) 2.0 benefits math, codec, image, and digital signal processing software while improving performance in face detection, professional imaging, and high-performance computing.

Paired with the Intel® Communications Chipset 89xxCC series, this processor-based platform extends the scalability of Intel® architecture (IA) into smaller footprint communications systems without sacrificing industry requirements such as workload acceleration and compression, multicore processing, and virtualization.

The platform addresses the needs of thermally constrained solutions, such as midrange security appliances, branch office routers, network access, media and communications servers, small cells, control plane processing, and storage.

  • Error Correcting Code (ECC):  Enhances performance, uptime, and autonomous operation. Detects multiple-bit memory errors and locates/corrects single-bit errors to keep a system up and running without requiring system reset.
  • Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology1: Additional logical cores on Intel® architecture-based systems increase control plane and data plane performance. Boosts performance for parallel, multi-threaded applications
  • Intel® Virtualization Technology2 for IA-32 and Intel® 64 (Intel® VT-x):  Faster performance for core virtualization processes. Improves application performance, live migration, provisioning, dynamic load balancing, and disaster recovery.
  • Intel® QuickAssist Technology:  Delivers hardware acceleration services for efficient cryptographic and compression performance.


Product and Performance Information


Available on select Intel® Core™ processors. Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires an Intel® HT Technology-enabled system. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software used. For more information, including details on which processors support Intel® HT Technology, visit


Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, and virtual machine monitor (VMM). Functionality, performance, or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems.
