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.
Ivy Bridge Performance and Overclocking Overview
Apr 27, 2012
: With the paper launch of Ivy Bridge earlier this week, and products shipping from the end of the week, we have taken a look at a number of reviews to give you an idea of what to expect if you buy an Ivy Bridge system, along with an overview of what to expect if you overclock it. Indications so far are that at the same clock speeds, Ivy Bridge will outperform Sandy Bridge by a few percent, but if you overclock it will get much hotter much quicker.
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.
Ivy Bridge productions CPUs sold on eBay
Mar 31, 2012
: Next Intel micro-architecture, code-named Ivy Bridge, is still a
month away, however you can already buy unreleased processors. It's
not unusual to see pre-production, or engineering samples of not yet
released CPUs sold before they they are announced. In this case,
however, we're talking about production processors. Several Ivy Bridge
production SKUs, including i5-3570K and i7-3770K, are sold in
countries like Russia or China. Two IB models can be also bought on
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,
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 graphics performance estimates
Feb 21, 2012
: Less than two months remains until the launch of the latest Intel
micro-architecture, codenamed Ivy Bridge. New micro-architecture will
feature many performance enhancements, and one of them is a beefed up
on-chip Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). According to previously leaked
documents, Ivy Bridge should perform considerably faster in graphics
applications than Sandy Bridge microprocessors.
Expreview ran a number
of benchmarks on engineering sample of unlocked i5-3570K Ivy Bridge
processor with HD 4000 graphics, and compared results to
second generation i5-2500K with HD 3000.
The results, collected by Expreview, confirmed previously leaked
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.
