Although Haswell processors will be released in June, there's pretty much nothing left that has not been leaked, including photo's, benchmarks, specifications, new technology .. and now the prices as well. The flagship Haswell model, Core i7-4770K with unlocked multiplier, was already spotted this week in some stores in Europe. The Haswell processor can be also pre-ordered from several online stores in US. What's more, the stores list a handful of other Haswell SKUs, including i5-4670K.
PCSuperStore currently has Core i5-4430, i5-4570, i5-4570S, i5-4670, i5-4670K, i7-4770, i7-4770K and i7-4770S on pre-order, with prices ranging from $197 to $368.
The table below shows how these prices stack up against prices of Ivy Bridge products from the same store:

With one exception, all Haswell microprocessors are currently 4% - 13% more expensive than Ivy Bridge counterparts. Pre-order prices tend to drop a bit when it gets closer to launch, but at this point it is impossible to tell whether they will drop to Ivy Bridge level, or will be a few percent higher reports cpuworld.
