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.
