Report: Intel to launch Ivy Bridge on April 8

By - Source: Digitimes | B 36 comments

Information about Intel's Ivy Bridge launch appears to have leaked out of Taiwan.

The first processors are apparently lined up for an April 8 launch. Digitimes reports that Intel will introduce 17 desktop CPUs and eight notebook CPUs that day.

According to the post, the company will launch the quad-core desktop processors Core i7-3770K, 3770, 3770S, 3770T, as well as Core i5-3570, 3550 and 3450 with tray prices between $184 and $332. The Core i5-3470T is scheduled for May and at $184, Digitimes wrote. The desktop CPUs will be complemented by the Z77, H77, Z75 and B75 chipsets initially, while the Q77 and Q75 will launch on May 13.

On the notebook side, the publication highlighted the Core i7-3920QM, 3820QM and 3720QM, which will be spearheading the mobile portfolio with tray prices of $1096, $568 and $378, respectively. Mainstream versions, including Core i5-3520M, 3360M, 3320M and the ultrabook CPUs Core i7-3667U and Core i5-3427U will be unveiled "later". The mobile chipset lineup will include the HM77, UM77, HM76 and HM75 in April and the QS77 and QM77 in May.

Intel declined to comment on the report.

    memadmaxHave some patience.... I'm sure your 3960x is so obsolete by now that it just dogs down when its running solitaire.....................................

    Ikr. Every time a new processor is released, the older stuff just gets slower! :sarcastic:

    Can't wait to see how the mobile chips stack up. AMD has more time now to fix Bulldozer and get the Piledriver chips competitive.

    I remember reading somewhere that the introduction of ivy bridge will phase out the dual cores and make the quad cores mainstream while the 8 cores will be the "new" high end.

    The i7-3770k will be an interesting benchmark review against the extreme sandy bridge CPUs and i7-2600k. I am looking forward to this tom.

    I'm sure most people will have enough CPU power even with an I3 or a Phenom II x4 but meh ...
    It's funny to see people getting the latest and greatest Intel CPU equiped laptops so they can browse the net , IM , read mail , listen to music , use Office and maybe even watch a HD movie ....
    I have a Phenom II x6 and it's way above what I need.

    I've been waiting for Ivy Bridge for a while now. My Core i7 920 is fast.... but Ivy Bridge will be a nice upgrade in a few months. Personally I can't wait!

    My Athlon II X4 is handling everything I throw at it. Let Ivy Bridge come! And then let software that needs it come eventually.

    So will the current intel motherboards be compatible with the ivy bridge series? I'm guessing yes because they are all i7's.

    It delayed and missed the back to school refresh in Jan. But,need to compare the performance of AMD bulldozer and INTEL ivy as gfx capacity doubled from last time. That will result in wait for PC refreshes til April for people as going for SNB will not have much gains.
