Ivy Bridge 22nm comes in 1H 2012

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Maho Bay chipset, Panther Point PCH
According to the most recent roadmap Intel shows to its customers, it looks like the upcoming Ivy Bridge 22nm architecture is scheduled for 1H 2012. The production, if Intel's CEO is a reliable source, should start in Q4 this year, 2011, while availability should be expected in 2012. This is what Paul Otellini said back at IDF 2010.

You can expect to see Ivy Bridge roughly a year after Sandy Bridge January 5th launch. The desktop platform around this new CPU is called Maho Bay and the chipset that will power it is Panther Point PCH. Naturally there will be a mobile version as well.

The graphics is still a part of CPU and it is a DMI chipset and has FDI support. Last time we checked FDI standard for Flexible Display Interface, something that enables you two or more display outs.

Intel promises much better energy efficiency and this is natural as we are talking about 22nm transistors and a lot of optimisation.

Hey Fudzilla writers, can you dig around and find out if a future Sandy Bridge chipset (not H67) will suport discrete graphics and Quick Sync without affecting overclocking , on other than MSI boards?

If the GPU can support DX11 then I.B. must be more than just a die-shrink, probably the reason why it will need a new socket.

My question is, will QuickSync be faster on Ivy Bridge? At 22nm i am sure it will be clocked higher, its meant to have double the number of 'execution units' and on top of that its meant to have on-board RAM which i am sure can only help.

funny to hear the brand-new Sandy Bridge processors from Intel being claimed to have only DirectX10 features, while AMD has DX11 built in right now.

immediately Intel say "our Ivy bridge CPU's will have DX11".

not a smart strategy to down-play your just-released CPU's by saying their successor will be better. notice they don't say WHEN, and it seems the WHEN is 1.5 years away. that's a long time to have AMD succeed Intel in integrated graphics.

Intel not in such a good Graphics position, wonder what they'll do with Nvidia's IP since the $1.5 Billion deal.

Intel is struggling and had to get their checkbook out to compete with AMD and Nvidia since Larrabee project isn't going so smoothly.

Intel has always lagged behind in discrete graphics. But doesn't everyone expect a chip's successor will be better? it's not 1.5 years away, it's the beginning of next year. But by then AMD will probably have an APU...

with HD7310 graphics in it. I don't see Intel's integrated graphics catching up to AMD's anytime soon. If you want a powerful processor and have a lot of money to spend on it, you get Intel. If you want good integrated graphics or want to save some money to buy a discrete card and don't need a ton of processing power that'll just lay idle when playing games, you get an AMD.

yes, my mistake, more like a year and a quarter.


Fuad's speculation: "You can expect to see Ivy Bridge roughly a year after Sandy Bridge January 5th launch"

could be up to end of 1st quarter next year while still being "1st quarter 2011".

AMD have all this time to capitalise and get Fusion products with great integrated GFX into consumers hands.

What is with this "AMD has a year to capitalize" stuff? AMD has to SURVIVE 2011. Just look at AMD's financial performance vs intel, it's even worse than their product performance vs. intel.

I think AMD will survive, but they're going to have to win back some market share in the server space that's been lost to intel. The last few years have been really unkind to AMD in this market segment. They've lost even their old sanctuary in the 4S and higher segment.

@Naterm, AMD finacials are showing 6.5 bln revenue, up 1 bln from last year's report, their profit is now in the green at around 400 mln USD after all taxes and debt were deducted, up about 700 mln when last year they were in the red, that means they lost 300 to 400 mln.

I'm mot saying that these numbers are wowing anyone, just that for a smaller company that has to fight two bigger companies, even with slower products, they are doing fine.

AMD already launched Bobcat and that will up next year's report, Bulldozer is set to reduce the gap between K10.5 and Sandy bridge, Llano will be a whole class and seeing how well NI did vs Evergren on the same process, I don't doubt the next GPU will kill!

AMD lost $400 million, intel made $11.46 billion. That's not even in the same league.

Bulldozer isn't launching in a vacuum. It'll have to go head to head with (most likely) faster and more power efficient intel processors. I'm sure it will do better than the Opteron 6100 and 4100 chips (you can't do much worse) but it's an uphill fight. Llano is a desktop CPU, that's only going to help so much. The desktop market is flat at best, laptops are becoming more and more important and AMD isn't known for their mobile CPUs. They barely even have a platform, and that's what matters in the notebook world. It's also possible that it will lower their profits in some areas, shipping one chip versus two.

Naterm,

1.) Bulldozer CPU's will be on the same 32nm process and while Intel's will have matured over the past half year to year or so Bulldozer CPU's have an advantage of using two cores for threads only capable of taking advantage of a single core so that alone may slaughter Intel on some benchmarks.

2.) AMD's Bobcat platform is superior to Intel's especially in the graphics department. Browsers are implementing GPU acceleration for XP/Vista/7.

The real vacuum is good products with great value, from Intel.
