Ivy Bridge to launch in March / April 2012

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Intel slows down
We told you quite a lot of details about Intel's 22nm Ivy Bridge CPU and its platform, but now we got a good indication that the launch is scheduled for the March to April 2012 timeframe.

Intel has talked to its partners and revealed that Ivy Bridge launch is slated for Q2 2012, not Q1 as they traditionally did in the past. This means that in the last few years Intel has slowed down its new generation tick - tock strategy by two quarters, or half a year.

Launching a new processor in very early Q1 actually made a lot of sense as a lot of people would end up buying a new PC early in the years begiing and not at Q4 when traditionally customers get a lot of electronic gadgets for their homes.

Both desktop and mobile Ivy Bridge are scheduled to launch in March or April and until then, you will have to satisfy your Intel notebook and desktop needs by Sandy Bridge. Interestingly enough, most affordable notebooks still come with Arrandale 32nm previous generation processors as Intel let them coexist with better Sandy Bridge 32nm siblings.

Is it verified and guaranteed that Ivy will work on current LGA 1155 chipsets?

Are you still sticking with:

"Haswell new 22nm architecture that should debut in 2H 2012"

This is why, whether you love or hate AMD, we need Bulldozers to be a great chip.

If AMD can pull another Athlon64 out of the FAB then Sandy Bridge will have to try and appeal on price and Ivy Bridge will have to be pulled in to maybe Q4 2011. This would in turn pull Haswell in as from what i have heard Bulldozer 2 is not far behind Bulldozer and offers some nice improvements.

The other option is that Sandy Bridge-E will have to be priced sensibly instead of Intel's normal high end pricing. But this doesn't help Intel getting destroyed on the GPU side of the chip.

inaphasia, just buy one and stop worrying. The way things move whatever you'll get will be outdated a year later. Enjoy the moment.

And in AMD's case, every 5 years. lol

Sorry I had to. :P

wow, I guess it wasn't just tsmc that had problems going past 32nm.

Looks like no one knows. Can't say im surprised considering they use a thumb in response to a question. I comment saying im getting an intel CPU and i get voted down (but i expected that), and you ask a question about intel CPU's and you get voted up.

I think fudzilla needs to follow Tech Reports' lead and show scores for both the thumbs up and down rather than a combined "score". Food for thought there.

Still can't wait for my Asrock P67 Fatal1ty and 2500K. :D
