20 May SAY GOODBYE TO SANDY BRIDGE, HELLO HASWELL

POS-X’s flagship POS Terminal, the EVO TP4 Pro is getting a boost in power from the Intel Haswell™ processor line. In response to this boost, POS-X has made the decision to replace all of their Sandy Bridge™  processors with the new Haswell processors effective immediately. The new models are in stock now and ready for purchase. Please see the End-Of-Life Notice at the bottom of this article for phase out dates of our older Sandy Bridge models.

Intel’s fourth generation Haswell processors boast higher processing power, lower energy consumption, and faster graphics than previous generations all while keeping the price of the EVO TP4 Pro down.

The Haswell series processors represent such a drastic improvements in performance, that a new Celeron Haswell CPU scores a higher benchmark than the older Pentium Sandy Bridge. See the chart below to compare benchmark scores of both series.
