Desktop dual-core Ivy Bridge in Q2 2012

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Only quad at launch
Ivy Bridge 22nm is a dual and quad core architecture destined to come in first half of 2012. Just like the mobile version of the new architecture, desktop variants will also only launch with quad-cores and the launch is scheduled for March to April 2012.

New quad-cores will replace the Core i7 2600 series as well as Core i5 2500 and Core i5 2400 series, while the Core i3 dual-core version of Ivy Bridge is not scheduled to launch before Q2 2012. There is a clear distance between quad-core and dual-core launch and in the worst case scenario you might have to wait for three months, while in best case scenario we are talking about a few weeks difference.

Ivy Bridge based Pentiums are still under consideration and in case they happen, we can only expect them after Q2 2012.

That gets you to wet yourself?... mmk.



I wonder if the process is working alright. Delays aren't a good sign.

Delays?LOL what delays? You clearly made mistake - its not damn amd,its Intel,so no delays like amd 6 months late with they Shovel aka bulldozzzer LOL

Think the reason for the "delay"? is lack of competition and quite possibly the lack of any competition from bulldozer when its released.

From recent release of BD specs looks to me AMD are increasing clocks at the expense of tdp just to try and be competitive with sandybridge on the performance front.

Intel have probably decided in the lack of any threat to milk a little more out of sandybridge following the initial chipset problems.

techno - you failed with Sandy,they cpus very well priced,especial y 2500K and 2600K (which cost 5 times less than X990 and performs same or even better) people demanding those cpu's since they are brilliant cpu's

In other hand,some GOOD NEWS for amd fanboys:

Actually cant stop laughing now MHUAHAHAHAHAHAH A
Good luck believe in "amd" - another fail from them,its clear they have problems with that Shovel,so less talk about Intels problems with P67 chip,they handled it very well,cant say this about amd,just promises,promis es,promises..When they release that BullDozzeEr it will be irrelevant anymore.amd=n00bs LOL

Drac, Sugi cucu coinac. You go buy intel's overpriced sh*t, i'm replacing my i5 760 with a nice 8-core bulldozer chip when i comes out. AMD's chips are cheaper, and some of us have common sense and don't like spending loads of cash on brandname.
