Intel confirms 22nm codename is "Ivy Bridge"

Written by Fuad Abazovic



IDF 2010: Details still sketchy

Intel’s next ‘tick’ architecture just got a solid codename.

After Intel's Sandy Bridge releases, the second-generation Core architecture that is scheduled to come in Q1 2011 in massive volumes, the semiconductor giant will introduce Ivy Bridge, a more refined successor architecture based on a smaller fabrication process.

Ivy Bridge is Intel's 22nm architecture and it will continue the all-integrated strategy, as getting a monolithic core with graphics inside of the chip is a winning combination.

At the moment, Intel’s EVP Dadi Perlmutter, the co-general manager of Intel Corporation's Intel Architecture Group, is focusing on 32nm Sandy Bridge and talking about the second generation of Turbo Boost Technology, which should offer superior performance to the current Turbo technology found in 45nm Nehalem and 32nm Westmere-based processors.



Ivy Bridge might be mentioned in more detail at a later time, but this is all that has been confirmed for now.

Intel is an innovation machine... when it wants to.

Ivy Bridge? That codename was disclosed years ago…

Probably will be just incrementally faster than 32nm.

Act surprised... ;-)

Quoting function69:

Well yes, it's just a tick.

Expect a few tweaks here and there, maybe more cache, more cores and/or higher clocks, and probably a beefier GPU. Remember that GPUs scale very well with additional transistors. Oh, and likely lower power, too.

So incremental, sure, but still quite nice.

I am waiting on the 11nm Furry Beaver.
