Intel's Ivy Bridge-E set for Q3 2013, Shows Leaked Slide

By - Source: VR-Zone Chinese | B 25 comments

In a leaked slide from VR-Zone Chinese, we have early confirmation that the LGA-2011 based Ivy Bridge-E is slated for Q3 2013.


The newest client platform road-map leaked by VR Zone Chinese shows that the next-generation high-end desktop (HEDT) platform will be released in Q3 2013. In addition, the Ivy Bride-E looks to follow the release of Intel's Core "Haswell" processors based on the LGA 1150 socket in Q2 2013. The Ivy Bridge-E will be built on the same 22 nm process as the current Ivy Bridge and will utilize the LGA 2011 socket. Though not all details are known, the Ivy Bridge-E should feature more processing cores, memory channels, cache, and be a PCIe 3.0 certified system. 

What remains to be seen is if Intel will launch a new chipset, along with the release of the Ivy Bride-E processors. If history repeats itself, expect Intel to release a new chipset with Ivy Bridge-E to replace the X79 chipset. As with the current Ivy Bridge, Intel released a new chipset with the transfer to the Ivy Bridge processor, though it made certain current LGA 1155 chipsets were compatible. With current X79 chipsets not fully certified for PCIe 3.0, we look for the new chipset to be fully PCIe 3.0 certified, along with other features being implemented with the Lynx Point Chipset on the "Haswell" platform.  

In other news, the slide does look to confirm what we reported in July about the up coming release of the Intel Core i7-3970X in Q4 2012 just-in-time for the holidays.

    ThunderfoxSo will IB-E still have a borked IHS?


    I'm going to laugh if they pair cheap thermal paste with a $999 processor.

    Another frigging socket? Ugh. 1156... no no... 1155... NO!! I got it this time! 1150!

    Does that mean from Q1 next year there will be no more development on 1155, so if I am buying now I should get a 2011 chipset or hold off a few months?

    Would you prefer if Intel went the AMD route and kept the same socket for like 5 years with little to no advancement in their chip technology?

    All I can say is I'm happy I bought a 2600k 18 months ago, looks like a chip that will likely hold up for a long time.

    One would think that naming it Ivy Bridge-E would make it compatible with the LGA 1155 socket.

    Pray tell, what is an "Ivy Bride" CPU?? - The version intended for the wifey?? :p 

    Seriously tho, if I actually needed a workstation-class system, this would be the one I'd get..

    ?? Today's Sandy Bridge-E is on LGA2011 - quad memory channels vs. dual for one thing. IB-E should be a drop-in replacement with a BIOS update.

    whitey: Moar FUD plz.

    "Would you prefer if Intel went the AMD route and kept the same socket for like 5 years with little to no advancement in their chip technology?"

    Orly? Are you trying to say that Trinity and Bulldozer aren't light years better than Athlon 64 x2? Because I know you're not trying to say that Intel's chipsets are better.

    "All I can say is I'm happy I bought a 2600k 18 months ago, looks like a chip that will likely hold up for a long time."

    From this we can infer that Intel is the one spending many years with little or no advancements in their chip technology, otherwise they'd have a compelling upgrade for you.

    What I would prefer is to buy a system that will allow me to upgrade the CPU again in 12 - 18 months. If dev for 1155 stops in Q1 then I would prefer to wait till 1150 comes out.

    Oh. I never heard of Sandy Bridge-E. So is this like a beefed up version of Ivy Bridge with quad memory?

    I am so glad I upgraded my 920 to the 3820. I would be pissed if I had just bought socket 1155 and it was going to be obsolete this fast.

    p67 motherboards released in March 2011. According to your argument "update the cpu in 12-18 months", you can update a sandybridge cpu to ivybridge. because 12 - 18 months from march 2011 is, march 2012 to September 2012. You can even update it after 24 months, March 2013.

    If you think intel could have kept the 775 chipset for all the cpus. Hmm... think about crappy NB & FSB, no sata III, no usb 3.0, no eSATA, No DMI etc etc..,

    quad memory, bigger cache, no IGP, but likely 8 cores/16 threads

    Ivy bridge-E Sandy Bridge-E = LGA2011 (EXTREME Version)

    Ivy bridge, Sandy bridge = LGA1155 ( mainstream version )

    Looks like EOL for SB is 1Q2013. Hey OCers, get 'em while they're hot!

    Then the slide has those "gt or eq to" 3770K and 3570K in the subsequent quarters. It would be nice if they fixed the IHS, but I'm not holding my breath. More likely just a single multiplier bump made possible by some minor tweaks and adjustments to process and stepping.

    What I find hard to swallow is that IB-E happens after Haswell. I mean, really? The 3960X has been around for a while, and the process has had most of its kinks worked out by now, so what's taking so long? Oh, right... no competition... no reason to push progress...

    And I would prefer to build a system that doesn't need a CPU upgrade in a year or two or three. This all depends on what you use it for but seriously man just build a SB/IB system on 1155 now - they are so powerful you won't need to upgrade to Haswell or Broadwell anyway so no worries about the socket being phased-out. Or if you insist on supreme performance then build on socket 2011 and you can swap out your expensive SB-E with an expensive IB-E in 12-18 months if you so desire.

    I read you meant to reply to my comment.

    What about Socket 775? Netburst through Penryn. There was a lot of changes through the life of that socket and.. guess what? There was huge advances in speed whilst power consumption went down. Intel went with socket 1156 after 775 for the mainstream market. Fine. Enter socket 1366 for the high-end desktop market. Fine. Oh OK, now it's socket 1155 for the mainstream (2 years later) and socket 2011 for high-end. That is not fine. Too many sockets in too short a time span.

    I too have a 2600k and it would be great to be able to drop in Haswell with only a BIOS update... providing the MB manufacturer would support it. I don't want to have to buy a brand new MB every time I want to upgrade.

    More evidence that Haswell will be (as Intel has said) more about mobility than power.

    I hope it brings enough more to the table that waiting for it instead of going Sandy Bridge-E is worthwhile. Of course, I pretty much have to wait anyway because my computer related purchases means building a SB-E rig right now isn't possible, so, not a big deal I guess, for me.

    It doesn't bode well for any significant boost for the power user until maybe 2015 - if they are releasing a top-end chip based on earlier architecture, that means they are really sticking to their intent to develop Haswell as a mobile processor. I don't see much hope for some kind of extreme version of Haswell.

    AMD might take the performance crown back after all.
