Intel (INTC) has begun shipping its Haswell CPUs to OEMs ahead of a launch set for later in Q2, CNET reports. Both Intel and its clients are counting on Haswell's power savings and ability to enable thinner/lighter ultrabooks and convertibles relative to Ivy Bridge systems to give a lift to PC demand, which (from all indications) remained weak in Q1.
