Report: Intel Scheduling 22 nm Ivy Bridge for April 2012

Since the introduction of its tick-tock cadence back in 2005, Intel traditionally unveiled a new generation of die shrinks at the end of uneven years, but the 45 nm and 32 nm products appeared to be squeezed into those years, while the actual volume rollout occurred several months later. Heise.de reports that 22 nm Core i3000 processors won't make it into 2011. Instead, Intel's Ivy Bridge platform is likely to debut around April 2012. Intel's (32 nm) Xeon E5 is delayed to spring 2012 as well.

There is no information about the reason of the possible delays. Last week, a report suggested that AMD is also dealing with some manufacturing problems.

    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.

    Looks like no upgrade for me this year.

    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..

  • there really is no point to upgrade from Lynnfield unless u need a new motherboard to sli or crossfire or need Quick Sync.... a 3.52GHz i5-760 will run circles around anything AMD has to offer

    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.

  • lets be careful before we king Intel and champion of the decade, IvyBridge has the same likelyhood to be a failure as Bulldozer, nothing is set in stone

I would love for my laptop and smartphone to last me at least 16hours of heavy use.
