Haswell is the codename for Intel's processor microarchitecture that will serve as the successor to the current Sandy Bridge and upcoming Ivy Bridge architectures. Haswell will use a 22nm (nanometer) die shrink fabrication process like Ivy Bridge and is expected to serve as the "tock" in Intel's alternating tick-tock model of releasing new processor families. The "tick" to Haswell, codenamed Broadwell, will be fabricated on a 14nm die shrink.
Processors utilizing Haswell are expected to appear in 2013 from Intel. The successors to Haswell and Broadwell will be Skylake and Skymont, and they’re expected to use a 14nm die shrink and a 10nm die shrink, respectively.
