Intel Ivy Bridge processors released today
Apr 29, 2012: Last Monday Intel announced Ivy Bridge microprocessors, and disclosed initial lineup for desktop and mobile markets. The same day the announcement was followed by numerous reviews and benchmarks, published by hardware news site. Today is another big day: the processors are now officially released, and they are hitting retail. Also today, Intel added new SKUs to official pricelist.



Intel announces Ivy Bridge desktop and mobile CPUs
Apr 23, 2012: Today Intel announced Ivy Bridge (IVB) microarchitecture, as well as 15 quad-core microprocessors, and 5 wireless chipset options. Initial IVB line-up includes six mobile processors, four desktop Core i7 CPUs with Hyper-Threading, and five Core 5 desktop models without Hyper-Threading. All processors will be available in OEM systems and in retail later this month. Some processor benchmark results are already available on Intel website, and earlier today many hardware news sites posted their own reviews with detailed benchmarks.



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.



Ivy Bridge to launch on April 8
Dec 28, 2011: There has been a lot of talk recently about Intel reducing prices of Sandy Bridge CPUs in the run-up to the launch of Ivy Bridge. Digitimes today (December 28 ) published details including pricing and release dates for various Ivy Bridge processors and chipsets. Initial SKUs will be released on or around April 8 2012, with a few more parts following over the following few weeks.



Prices of Ivy Bridge desktop CPUs
Dec 19, 2011: Ivy Bridge micro-architecture, planned for the second quarter 2012, will bring a number of enhancements to CPU and graphics portions of the chip. The CPU cores will feature up to 15%, sometimes even higher performance due to micro-architecture improvements and 100 MHz - 300 MHz higher Turbo Boost frequencies. HD 4000 and HD 2500 graphics will add support for DirectX 11, and it will be considerably faster than current HD 3000 and HD 2000 on-chip graphics. What's more important, better performing Ivy Bridge CPUs will come with 20% lower Thermal Design Power. It's great that upcoming CPUs will run cooler and faster, but at what price? Based on pricing information, that we've seen, desktop Ivy Bridge SKUs will have prices, in most cases identical to Sandy Bridge predecessors.



Ivy Bridge desktop CPU lineup details, part II
Nov 27, 2011: Today we published details of upcoming Ivy Bridge microprocessors, that were leaked by Zol.com.cn news site. As soon as we published the story, we discovered that more detailed list of Ivy Bridge models was leaked by corescn website.



Ivy Bridge desktop CPU lineup details
Nov 27, 2011: In the second quart 2012, Intel is going to introduce 22nm shrink of Sandy Bridge micro-architecture, codenamed Ivy Bridge. As we previously reported, initial launch will include Core i5 and Core i7 desktop microprocessors, along with Core i7 mobile models. Processor numbers and some details of desktop Core i5s and Core i7s were revealed this week by Zol.com.cn.
