Desktop Ivy Bridge 22nm to launch in April

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Week 14, April 1 to 7th, quad core only


The date is still not final, but we have a launch week now. If all goes as planned, Intel plans to simultaneously launch mobile and desktop Ivy Bridge in Week 14. The launch should take place from April 1st till April 7th, at least this is the current plan that Intel shared with a few partners.

On the desktop side, Intel again starts with quad-core parts, following up with dual-core Ivy Bridge 22nm CPUs a month later. The current launch schedule includes Intel Core i7-3770K, i7-3770, i7-3770S, i7-3770T, i5- 3570K, i5-3550, i5-3550S, i5-3570T, i5-3450 and i5-3450S Processors. As you can see there are no Core i3 3000 series planned for the initial launch but the Core i7 and Core i5 3000 series will launch simultaneously with Z77, Z75, H77 and B75 (business) chipsets, previously known as Panther Point.

This will put some additional pressure on AMD FX and A8 Llano processors as well as on soon to launch Trinity quad cores. Ivy Bridge was definitely delayed by at least a whole quarter, but it will still be the first 22nm architecture, starting as of April.
