Ivy Bridge in Q4 2011

http://www.nordichardware.com/news/76-motherboards/41290-intel-x68-motherboards-being-tested-by-intel-and-partners.html

By the looks of it i guess everything is being pushed back. Most people assumed Q3 2011 for Ivy Bridge, possibly called Sandy Bridge E. Perhaps Bulldozer wont have as big a competitor from the start as was thought. Perhaps BD will be delayed further. Who knows, but specs look good, as does the future.

  1. Ivy bridge isn't SB-E though, its the 22nm die shrink of SB.

    This says nothing of Ivy Bridge, only Sandy Bridge E which is the LGA2011, LGA1366 replacement. I do doubt though it will be pushed back. If its in testing now, then it has plenty of time till Q3 2011.

    Ivy Bridge has always been set for Q4 2011 for the start and then of course release the iterations through Q1-Q2 of 2012.
  3. Well, if SB-E is coming before Ivy Bridge, which it would make no sense if it wasnt, then what does that say for "Ivy Bridge"?

    Ivy bridge is going to be like Westmere/32nm Nehalem die shrink. It will replace the entry-level SBs on 1155, warm up the 22nm process, then at a later point infiltrate the server market and bringing another 980X to the table.
