Intel announces entry-level Ivy Bridge early

Coming near you on June 24

Chipzilla has announced that its entry-level Ivy Bridge Core i3 processors will be available after June 24. This is a lot earlier than the third-quarter which most people expected.

Intel’s Taiwan branch announced these chips will start shipping as early as the third week of this month. The dual-core Core i3 chips were expected to launch just in time for the holidays. Intel's Core i3 chips, we should soon see even more affordable laptops and desktops.

Higher-end versions of Intel’s third-generation processor were released earlier this year - the top-of-the-line Core i7 and mainstream Core i5 processors. These are already showing up in new and updated laptops and desktop PCs.

It is unclear whether Intel moved up the timing on the Core i3 processors to help ramp up Ivy Bridge computer sales. It is also strange because most of us thought this move was waiting for Windows 8 to be released.
