Of course they are in no hurry since Bulldozer has been weighed and found wanting. I'm sure Intel won't drag its feet to much since they learned not to do that the hard way.

this gives me some more time to start acquiring hardware, first up is a Z68 mobo.
running a Core i5-760 @ 3.52GHz I was able to pass over Sandy Bridge, I will not be skipping Ivy.
even with AMD and it's 'Bulldud', Intel is again pulling way out in-front..

I'd hope that Intel would release a 6 core mobile CPU, or at least a high clocked quad core mobile CPU (3GHZ + constant hopefully) instead of just focusing on low tdp. Power efficiency is awesome but bleeding edge needs to be there too.

Yeah, powerful mobile chips would be nice, but if I had to choose between horsepower and power efficiency for my mobile devices, I would definitely pick power efficiency. I would love for my laptop and smartphone to last me at least 16hours of heavy use.

im not sure i understand 100%, does this mean we can buy ivy bridge chipset motherboards and ivy bridge cpus in april? or is that only when the manufacturing process starts and we will have to wait several more months to actually be able to buy it?

Im currently running a first gen i7 1366 platform, i skipped sandy bridge, figured id get either bulldozer when i upgrade (not going to do that now) or ivy bridge, looks like ivy bridge is the one to shoot for but time is a factor, i only got the money around tax return time probably (hoping) for a possible upgrade. Not going with x79 thats too expensive for me im afraid.

As long as performance is the same as SB and the power usage / heat is lower i'll be happy, which is most likely what it's going to be like.

With Bulldozer still ramping up, a delay by Intel could be disastrous, especially if AMD releases a revision that increases clock speed/performance even more.

Even now, the performance of the Bulldozer has to be causing a loss of sleep at Intel. A quick revision by AMD could boost clock speeds a few hundred megahertz, which should be enough to exceed even the 486 in performance, on virtually all benchmarks with more than one thread running.

Having chosen Intel over anything else for the 1st time in 13 years of PC building doesn't really make me an AMD fan I guess. But I DO share your opinion concerning multi-tasking. It feels like the multi-core implementation on any current Intel is rather strange - much different than any multi-processor server platform I've ever played with, it feels more like a rebranded HyperThreading. AMD on the other hand resembles multi-processr systems with the feeling there seems to have horsepower to spare even if you peak all cores to 100%. My other complaint relates to Turbo Boost - it only seems to reach the peak clock advertised while running benchmarks, nothing else will do. Can't believe I'm the only 1 who noticed these things...

so intel is getting their !@#$% on. i hope they really are facing production problems cuz everything about this delay seems like a ploy to milk mainstream sandy bridge and specially sandy bridge-e even more before ivb comes out and makes sb-e upgrades 'not worth the money...ever'.
i partially blame amd for not releasing a competitive platform. yeah 990fx gives you one of the best chipset in terms of connectivity and pcie 2.0 lanes but what do you get to use with that? zam'disappointing/space heater/powersucker'bezi. interlagos doesn't seem all that great either, at least not enough to gain more server marketshare from intel. amd should have given intel a good run for their worth. kinda like what they (almost)did with bobcat and llano.

this is what lack of competition results - laziness and delay.. :(

That article addresses a legitimate concern. What it fails to address is the fact that a lot of the comments like yours are from fan boys who really don't care about the facts. You say Bulldozer multitasks better than any Intel quad (I'm assuming you're not counting hyperthreads) and yet I've read multiple reviews from trusted sites that say otherwise in most circumstances. Is it fast? Yes, but it's lacking when compared to the current Intel crop. This is how the pendulum swings and I'm sure AMD will temporarily take the lead back some day.

I got it. Thanks for the chuckle.

Processors from 2007 are still viable products (based on performance, not price or availability). For the mainstream use, I doubt the average joe could ever tell the different between the older and the newer. I don't like to point fingers at Intel or AMD. I don't like pin the successes or failures of one, on the other. I also don't like to accuse every decision or problem is directly influenced by the competition.

I like to blame the software guys.

correct me if im wrong ivy bridge has nothing new and is just a die shrink, and maybe a graphics bump.

gpu will be pathetic, im assumeing, but we all know that.
the shrink will be able to pull faster speeds out of the cpu, but at the same time it wont be ungodly fast.

realistically, this may be more of a "failure" than people think, because honestly, even if you have an amd 3ghz quad core, or even a bulldozer, you do not need the performance bump this give. realistically, you don't need to upgrade anymore at all, cpu wise, unless you get a new motherboard.

i mean a core2 to an i7, or a phenom to an i7 when it was all new, would be a reasonable jump, but now? its not as large a margin as people think.

intel is releasing this because its a die shrink on a design they know, work out kinks in the fab process, than go full swing into new cpu design next.

intell is probably planning a loss on this gen with the cpu to get a jump on future gens.

Ivy Bridge is coming with tri-gate transistors. 30% faster and 50% less power consumption over SB. AMD is screwed so hard when Intel will be able to take a "garbage" Ivy Bridge cpu and sell it for $50 and still defeat a Phenom II X4.

I was a fan of AMD at it's golden period of amd 64bit athlon 3500+ etc.
I have to admit, AMD is losing the research race, which is sad for 2 things.

It gives Intel a monopolistic attitude that hurt us, the hobbists,
making us to change motherboards/rams/channels too often
and for small steps in performance :( 

I was really happy with my socket 1366 / i7-920, however i was
forced to an upgrade because of motherboard failure.
i5-2500k is fine, really, but from i7-920 to ivy bridge even, the performance
in games, for example is really the same for me, considering i dont want to spend
300euro every year for graphic cards..

If this keeps on, cloud gaming will be reaaaaaaaally welcome
think about it,

if we spend 400euro/500$ every year on pc upgrades just to play the games at perfect quality
why not keep the same pc and play on cloud with just 10-20 bucks/month and all games be on good quality AND originals!

Is this where this thing is going? is it intentional (i bet it is )

Since Core architecture Intel does not have any competition in the X86 market. Intel have no need to introduce faster/better things. We all know that Intel could release 4+ ghz parts if they wanted. But why if there is no competition?
This will bite Intel in the end. ARM 2007 416mhz. Intel quod core 3ghz. ARM 2011 Quod core 1.2ghz. Intel Hexa core 3.3ghz. ARM have increased in speed 16 times last 4 years. Intel just 2 times (if you consider Hyperthreading).
Next year many will have phones/tablets that are faster then their home computers and for 90% of the population they are fast enough for all the tasks they do. Just hook up any HDMI monitor and a wireless keyboard and you have a complete setup.

RISC and *nix is taking over the world. Fun how things turns out and we can finally put down 40 years legacy X86 microcode that is ineffective.
