Not content with just FIVE processor sockets (LGA775/1156/1155/1366/2011), Intel is preparing to launch the 'Haswell' processor in socket LGA1150 for the upcoming Intel Z87, H87, B85, H81 chipsets. VR-Zone reports the first Intel Z87 and Intel H87 motherboards will be on display at CeBIT 2013 in Germany. Intel 'Haswell' CPUs are expected to launch at Computex 2013 in June.
