25 new chips lined up
Intel is reportedly planning to introduce its next generation Ivy Bridge processors on April 8.
According to Taiwanese PC makers, Intel has lined up 25 new parts in total, 17 reserved for desktops and eight mobile parts, including a couple of ultrabook chips.
However, not all of them will show up in April. Four desktop Core i7 and three Core i5 processors should show up in April, with prices ranging from $184 to $332. Intel will also launch four 7-series chipsets in April, with an additional two business oriented variants coming in May.
In the notebook department, Intel plans to release three pricey Core i7 quad-cores in April. The Core i7-3920QM, 3820QM and 3720QM will cost $1,096, $568 and $378. Core i5 models will follow a bit later, along with the Core i7-3667U and Core i5-3427U, two ultrabook oriented parts. Four mobile chipsets are also rolling out in April.
