Intel to discontinue desktop Core i3 and mobile Core i7 CPUs
Sep 17, 2013: Intel plans to discontinue several Ivy Bridge processors next year. According to a Product Change Notification, that was published yesterday, the company is going to retire Core i3-3210 and i3-3225 desktop CPUs for socket 1155, along with Core i7-3720QM, i7-3820QM and i7-3920XM mobile microprocessors for socket G2. Both tray and boxed versions of these microprocessors will be discontinued.

Intel launches mid-class and budget desktop CPUs
Sep 02, 2012: Shortly after the launch of 22nm Ivy Bridge microarchitecture in April 2012, all Core i5 and i7 desktop products were transitioned to the new technology. Until today, less expensive Pentium and Core i3 processors stayed on older 32nm process. It all changed today, when Intel released Pentium and Core i3 "Ivy Bridge" microprocessors, and refreshed Celeron and Pentium lineups. Overall, the company launched 16 new mid-class and budget SKUs, including one previously unknown model, Core i5-3335S.

Bits and pieces: unreleased Intel CPUs spotted
Aug 16, 2012: In the 4th quarter 2012, Intel's Extreme segment of desktop market will be updated with Core i7-3970X. Details of this CPU were revealed by DonanimHaber, and later confirmed by a roadmap, leaked by VR-Zone. Existence of this SKU was also confirmed earlier this month by Intel, when the Core i7-3970X was added to Intel's Material Declaration Data Sheets (MDDS) database.

New Intel Core i3 and Pentium CPUs to launch in September
Jul 17, 2012: Intel Ivy Bridge (IVB) desktop microprocessors were launched in April of this year, and so far only Core i5 and i7 families were transitioned to the new architecture. According to the launch schedule, that we posted back in March, Ivy-Bridge based Core i3 CPUs should be available in the third quarter. We now have more details on the schedule. Based on information, that we have on hand, Core i3-32xx products will be released in the second week of September (the week that starts on September 2nd). Along with Core i3s, Intel will introduce Pentium G2100T and G2120 SKUs, also based on the Ivy Bridge core.

Prices of upcoming Ivy Bridge desktop CPUs
May 21, 2012: First desktop Intel Core i7 and i5 processors with Ivy Bridge (IVB) core were rolled out less than a month ago, and more of these parts will be coming in two weeks. Specifications of forthcoming models were known for quite some time, but the prices were revealed only last Friday. DigiTimes reported that upcoming Core i5 microprocessors will be priced from $184 to $205. DigiTimes also provided $177 - $138 price range for IVB-based Core i3 chips, coming in the third quarter. We were able to confirm this information, and we can also provide slightly more details about prices of Ivy Bridge CPUs.

Revised Ivy Bridge launch schedule confirmed
Mar 27, 2012: Ivy Bridge launch was delayed twice. First time it slipped from the first to the second quarter 2012, and then it was delayed by another two weeks. Current launch date for desktop Ivy Bridge CPUs is set on April 29, which was confirmed by two different sources, Sweclockers and Donanimhaber. That still left us in the dark in regards to mobile processors, due to rumors that their launch was pushed back until June. After seeing recent desktop and mobile roadmaps we can confirm that both desktop and mobile IB chips will be released at the same time.

Details of Ivy Bridge Core i3 CPUs leaked
Feb 15, 2012: One of the most anticipated events of the year will be the launch of Ivy Bridge micro-architecture and related products. The first Ivy Bridge "third-generation" processors will be introduced in April, and more products will follow in the second and third quarters. Details of upcoming Core i5 and i7 CPUs were revealed last November, and slides with specifications of more budget-oriented Core i3 chips were leaked this week by
