Ivy Bridge 22nm sticks with socket 1155

Written by Fuad Abazovic

DirectX 11 and three display support

The Ivy Bridge 22nm story gets even better. The new chip is socket LGA 1155 and it is socket compatible with the existing Sandy Bridge processors and Sugar Bay 2011 platform. Unfortunately we are quite sure that Cougar point PCH chipset of Sandy Bridge won’t support the new 22nm Ivy Bridge.

We are afraid that you will still need a new board. Even the Panther point PCH chipset is pin compatible with Cougar Point chipset of Sandy Bridge, but again this might help board manufactures to make boards faster, but end users will need to buy a new board.

 

The new platform officially supports USB 3.0 and its graphics can deal with DirectX 11. One additional news is that Maho Bay platform graphics now supports three independent displays, something that might come handy to a few, i.e. users in the financial business. Let's not forget the enhanced media performance as well as much better performance in both graphics and CPU area.

Sounds good, and the new platform comes roughly in a year's time, Q1 2012, most likely January 2012 if Intel doesn't hit any delays.

Didn't this happen with the 900-series chipsets? Every new CPU needed a new one.

I find it hard to believe that a new chipset will be necessary. After all it's just a shrink, not a new architecture.

indeed, its just the finalised second gen core I processors, the sandy bridge cores are not fully implemented (FMA3 is not included for instance)

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.

Should I buy this HP laptop? I was planning to get it since it's Sandy Bridge inside, and I thought it will be Ivy Bridge compatible. Should I get it or not?

why was my previous question down rated? it was merely a question

Some people are really stupid.

EDIT:
No, the article is all confusing. And this is "news". I already read about the compatibility before. Now I got confused by this sh!t, if you don't have a real answer GTFO.

Ditto. With Intel a new chipset is always necessary even if it makes no sense. It's been Intel's modus operandi since the Pentium MMX with Socket 7 or whatever.

I'm sure that Sandy Bridge E will do just fine for the next two years if your a gamer, Ivy Bridge is just not necessary for those that purchased Sandy Bridge E. You have to ask yourself how much is enough for what you use your computer for!

Probably because it's a stupid question. intel uses different sockets for it's mobile processors so this article has no bearing on your laptop.

Because the answer was plain as day in the news post. Don't ask a stupid question and then call other people stupid. It's like those people who ask questions that could have more quickly just been searched on Google.
