Prices of upcoming mobile Ivy Bridge CPUs
May 07, 2012
: On April 23 Intel announced first "Ivy Bridge" based mobile
processors, all of which had 4 CPU cores and could handle as many as 8
processing threads at once. These chips were not cheap, and even the least
expensive Core i7-3720QM model had price tag close to $400. On June 3
Intel plans to launch more affordable dual-core CPUs, also based on
Ivy Bridge micro-architecture. Prices of these microprocessors will
range from $225 to $346.
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 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.
Ivy Bridge mobile CPU lineup revealed
Dec 06, 2011
: The launch of Ivy Bridge micro-architecture is still a quarter
away, but we already have plenty of information on upcoming desktop
microprocessors, thanks to a series of leaks of Intel roadmap slides.
Not only desktop roadmap has been leaked.
published yesterday a few slides, containing release
schedule and specifications of Ivy Bridge mobile microprocessors.
According to published slides, Intel will launch 3 quad-core CPUs in
April, followed by 3 dual-core mainstream models and two ULV
processors in May.
