The new high-end Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs are just fresh off the wafer, but what seems to be updates to the current lineup have already surfaced.
One of AMD’s new Trinity chips have been thoroughly tested and it looks like a modest improvement for integrated graphics.
Intel only releases five mobile processors in the initial batch of new 22nm Ivy Bridge processors. Conveniently enough, though, all of them are quad-core varieties that should drip feed into the latest gaming laptops real soon.
There has been much talk back and forth about delays with Intel’s next-gen Ivy Bridge platform, but now it looks like things have started to settle, with some launch dates confirmed.
Intel’s next-generation Ivy Bridge processors will start to trickle out in April, but some details about the successor Haswell, due in 2013, have already surfaced. It seems that Intel continues its valiant struggle towards integrated graphics that suck slightly less.
Overclocking the processor in a gaming laptop is impressive, even if it doesn’t have such a major effect on gaming performance.
An Intel China representative recently told the Financial Times that Ivy Bridge has been pushed back 8 to 10 weeks, which caused quite a commotion on hardware websites all over the world.
