Ivy Bridge works in 60 series boards

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Manufacturers confirm


We spoke with a few motherboard manufactures and got word that the test version of Ivy Bridge they have works just fine in a few 60 series motherboards available today.
 
In order to run Ivy Bridge 22nm CPUs branded Core I 3000 series on Cougar Point chipset, you will need a new bios and drivers to make it happen, as well as M8 firmware. In that case Ivy bridge processors will work in H61, H67, P67 as well as Z68 boards.

Ivy Bridge won’t work in business edition Q65, Q67 and B65 chipsets as Intel hopes that business will buy complete platforms, not just upgrade CPUs.

Still, 70 series chipset codenamed Panther Point will be the first Intel chispet to offer native USB 3.0 support as well as PCI 3 gen for graphics enthusiasts as well as three display support. Our sources are telling us that Ivy Bridge looks fine, and that all should be ready for launch in March or April.
