Intel Confirms That Ivy Bridge Is Definitely Delayed

There have been suggestions floating around that Intel's new Ivy Bridge processors would arrive later than anticipated on the market. Now, those rumours have been confirmed as true by a senior Intel employee, so we won't see the processors in April as previously expected.

Speaking to the Financial Times, Intel's executive vice-president Sean Maloney stated that the new processors were delayed, and that when it came to new release dates, "I think maybe it's June now." The first mobile Ivy Bridge processors were originally expected to land by April.

Why the hold up? Maloney suggests to the FT that it's due to the manufacturing process. Fair enough: they are a technological leap on from the Sandy Bridge line, so I guess we should cut them some slack. [Financial Times]


    Urgh, was going to wait a month or two to build a new comp to get IB, but that's looking pretty distant now.

    The Sandy Bridge line up is a great line of processors which for most people will be more than enough processing power.

    There was some suggestion that it would only be the duel core IBs that are delayed because duel core SBs are overstocked..

    i guess at the least i can snap up a SB laptop for even cheaper

    Ivy bridge is just a shrunk sandy bridge anyway, my 2500kSB gets up to 4.5Ghz then my mtherboard or memory craps out anyway, so I don't see what real advantage a smaller die would make anyway.

    So which is gonna come out first. IvyBridge or Diablo 3? :P
