Ivy Bridge pushed back to June

Written by Peter Scott



Manufacturing issues apparently


Intel exec Sean Maloney told the Financial Times over the weekend that Intel’s next generation 22nm chips will ship in June.

Ivy Bridge was originally expected to ship in early Q2, but it seems Intel was forced to delay it for a couple of months due to manufacturing issues. Rumours of an Ivy Bridge delay have been circulating for weeks, but this is the first time an Intel exec went on the record and confirmed the delay.

“I think maybe it’s June now,” he said.

However, some things are still not clear. VR Zone reported last week that dual-core Ivy Bridge parts will be delayed, but quads were supposedly on track. Maloney did not elaborate and it is unclear whether he was talking about the entire series, or just dual-cores.

Intel’s official position is only that it will start shipping Ivy Bridge in Q2, so both April and June are covered.

In any case, the delay could play into AMD’s hands, as the outfit is gearing up to launch Trinity APUs and even try to unsettle Intel in the ultrabook market with some low-voltage parts.
