Intel is set to launch its new Ivy Bridge processor in April 2012 and will make the move to 22 nm on LGA 1155. It will feature faster integrated graphics controller, lower TDP, higher clock speeds and overclocking ceiling with the 22 nm process. Right around the corner, Intel is set to release its "tock" strategy with the Ivy Bridge successor, codename Haswell.
A road-map slide leaked by DonanimHaber shows Haswell is set to release in around the March to June 2013 time-frame. Haswell is based on Intel's new CPU architecture that replaces the unreleased Ivy Bridge. Haswell looks to be based on the new LGA 1150 socket, which will not be compatible with either the LGA 1155 or LGA 2011 sockets. It will be based on the tri-gate 22 nm manufacturing process, similar to Ivy Bridge. Haswell is expected to have Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2), DX11.1, OpenGL 3.2, Thunderbolt, Transactional Synchronization Extensions (TSX) and Windows 8 support.

Seeing a slide like that make me think that hitting a dead body is kind of useless..Reply
Today AMD have troubles to keep general performace with the current Sandy-Bridge. Ivy-Bridge will be better and it's coming.. in less than a year and half will be an Ivy-Bridge upgrade?
AMD really need to run at fast pace. really fast..
Competing with intel on the highend space isn't on amd's shortlist.Reply
Isn't Ivy Bridge a "Tock" and Haswell a new" Tick"?Reply
I'm guessing it'll most likely be july, actually, going by the 1 year and three month diff b/w SB and IB.Reply
I wonder what Haswell brings to the market though. 14nm sounds cool enough for now :D
should i get the Intel Core-i7 3930K now or wait for Ivy bridge?Reply
AMD is dying in the desktop world, and it will continue, unless it can bring something that works as good as what the specs said originaly.Reply
when sandybridge came out so cheap it realy affected AMD. the performance you get from a sandy is way more. did gaming fps with 2600k and FX-8150. the amd had 3-8 fps drop compared to the sandy.(tested with gtx 260 and 8800GT(lower cards make the difference clearer).
when it came down to Rendering the sandy beat the Bull with 2-6 minutes to spare for the same job. which is a big difference for me.
so yea, amd realy has to pull the thumb out their ass and fix their shit.
i wait for haswell...ivy bridge seemed so obsolete compared to haswell's 'features' like dx11.1 and win8....:PReply
Yet another socket? I remember why I hated Intel :-PReply
Sucks that I really need to upgrade my old AM2 system, so it'll probably be Ivy Bridge for me and then I'll have to throw it all out and start over in a year or two...

Tock is the new architecture = Haswell

Haswell is not 14nm. Its a new architecture on the same process node of ivybridge (22nm).
