Intel partners have Ivy Bridge boards

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Prototypes in house


Despite the fact that you probably won’t be able to buy a Ivy Bridge desktop or a motherboard based on Intel’s new 70-series chipset before April, many partners are working hard on motherboards to support Intel’s new platform.
 
A while ago we said that Ivy Bridge is pin compatible and will work in most 60-series motherboards, but for a full experience you will need to get the new board, e.g. one based on the H77 chipset. Intel’s partners are already playing and Ivy Bridge 22nm is the real thing, they have samples and they claim that in some cases it’s much faster than Sandy Bridge at the same clock.

The most impressive performance increase is graphics that rocks much faster than on Sandy Bridge. Intel is certainly getting much better when it comes to graphics and multimedia on its platforms.

Ivy Bridge boards, CPUs for both notebooks and desktops are expected in March / April time, and once again you will get better performance, better battery and overall better platform to dominate notebooks and most desktops in 2012.

You forgot to mention Intel will rape your wallet :)
Also when P67 and H67 came, they had defective transistor/chips, hurray!
Lets see if they can release something not broken or overpriced his time...

Sorry but Intel has plenty of low priced $50-$140 Sandy Bridge chips for sale. AMD's Fusion is priced in that same exact range.

Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge will be competing with AMD's upcoming Piledriver in that same mainstream $50-$140 price range. AMD will loose on the CPU side but hopefully they can integrate a much better GPU without power consumption going off the charts, that's where AMD has some serious problems.

Any advantage Fusion had in a faster GPU will be nullified till Piledriver. Except that Piledriver will *STILL* be on a 32nm process while Ivy will be 22nm. That's a major problem for AMD.

I was thinking about new products at release/beginning, Intel tends to overprice their newest things a lot to begin with, and lowering prices around after half a year, to something more sensible.

About Fusion Piledriver vs Ivy Bridge is hard to say, afik AMD will be using a newer Bulldozer design than the current one in Piledriver, hopefully they'll give each other an hard competition next year, and daddy needs a cheap good HTPC :P

New board again..............wooot!

Every year they have new chipset, every year the Intel user gets obsolete, every year Intel is making money out of them, e very year new idiot is born, sounds like infinity.

What you are talking about ?!

Ivy bridge is going to work with current LGA 1155 motherboard with bios update

Yes you are 100% correct. Intel is not launching replacement for H61 chipset i.e H71, the entry level. H67 v/s H77 = H77 has built-in USB3 & smart response tech if u use SSD as caching. Both are useless coz if u buy SSD why u wanna use it for cache only better as a boot drive & 98% of H67 chipset boards come with USB3.0 ports even Intels own H67 boards have USB3 ports! Intel will get greedy & not issue BIOS update for their own line of H67 chipsets im sure. Some partners might also back-track on support for Ivy Bridge on H67 but this is a 50-50.
