Ivy Bridge 22nm has 24 shaders

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Double the graphics in Sandy Bridge 2011 cores
If you think that 32nm Sandy Bridge has much better graphics core than current Intel graphics solutions, you should get really excited about the next generation 22nm architecture codenamed Ivy Bridge.

The next generation Core processor in 22nm will have two times the number of shaders, and the number will go up from 12 to 24.

This is a huge increase and will boost the gaming performance across Intel's Ivy Bridge range of products. However, there is one big catch, the drivers. Intel's biggest issues take years to fix, and we don't expect that Intel's integrated graphics will satisfy anyone who is at least a bit serious about proper graphics, but casual gamers might enjoy playing some undemanding games on their notebooks.

Of course desktop Ivy bridge will have the same shader number, but as you can iamgine, Intel is selling more and more laptops and in 2012, when Ivy Bridge ships in serious volume, there will be even more notebooks and demand for new ones.

Ivy Bridge is slated for launch in late 2011, but we expect that serious volume shipments will start in Q1 2012, so it's still more than a year away.

Let's hope that Fusion with the new Bulldozer core won't come much later, but unfortunately only in 32nm or 28nm. If Intel continues with this speed, you might be able even to run Crysis 4 on Intel's Integrated by 2015, of course not with all details cranked up.

Gaming performance?.... Seriously!? That's what you're going with!

Does the new graphics core support OpenCL?

what an absurd comment

Last i heard about Ivy Bridge is that it is still on track for 2H 2011 launch. That is crazy, half of Sandy Bridge won't even be out by then. Can someone speak to Intel to get clarification on its time lines. What Ivy Bridge will be out in 2011? Even mid-range should challenge the high-end Sandy Bridge that is coming out at the same time! Craziness!

As for the graphics, i think its great that the vast majority of non-gaming graphics can be handled by the much more efficient CPU/GPU. But the most important thing is to have a proper switch off of you dedicated 300Watt discrete GPU card.

Aero, Blu-rays, maybe even encoding can be all done on the CPU but there is no point in any of that if your GPU is still drawing Megawatts of power all the time.

Come on! At least they mention AMD.

You AMD/ATI fanboys always complain when there's an article about AMD - and fuad mentions Nvidia.

@noypogs16

Fuad does get a little carried away but i think he has a point. Intel's 40nm is hitting 4GHz easily, its 32nm is hitting 5GHz on air, 22nm is supposedly just around the corner and presumably will be another nice jump in clocks but AMD is stuck at 40nm with a poorer overclocker and a very old architecture.

Don't get me wrong i love AMD, i have an AMD CPU and graphics card but they need to push out Bulldozer fast and get back in the game!

@loadwick

Agreed both AMD and Nvidia need to develop something for turning off the discrete gpu.
Nvidia's Optimus was a good idea but only worked on some notebooks. With hybrid cpu/gpus coming from both AMD and Intel an optimus like system for desktop systems for all AMD/Nvidia/Intel combinations would be a great idea.

What everyone needs to know is that intel said last year the majority of the gaming market takes place on casual gaming (online flash games, facebook games etc) and said that's where they remain focused hence all of these shitty graphics chips they keep throwing up.

Intel aren't a threat to the likes of AMD or Nvidia in the graphics sector, they've no intention of taking on the worlds top 2 graphics manufacturers in the enthusiast gaming market because they know they'll get their arses kicked.
