Ivy Bridge not delayed

Written by Nick Farrell



Intel quashes rumours


Intel has moved to squash rumours that its new Ivy Bridge chips will be really late.

Last week, Digitimes claimed that Intel was going to delay mass availability of its new Ivy Bridge processors until after June. The original target date for Ivy Bridge shipments was in April. VR Zone has learned that the report was only partly true. Intel will only be delaying the release specifically of mobile Dual-Core Ivy Bridge processors, but everything is more or less on schedule.

The reason for the delay of the Dual Core  processors is due to an overstock of the previous generation chips. There were some fears in the Apple camp that Job's Mob's release plans for updated MacBook Pros and iMacs might be put on hold.  However if Apple is going to stick Quad-Core processors in their iMac, so that product line should see no added delays.

The iMac was last updated in May, 2011 and is overdue for a refresh.  Only one of those uses a dual core processor and that will probably be axed anyway.
