Intel’s Ivy Bridge delayed ‘by a few weeks’

Spring launch still on target.

During the weekend, Intel China’s VP and chairman, Sean Maloney, told the Financial Times that the recent rumors about their latest Ivy Bridge CPUs being delayed are true. The expected launch of Intel’s latest 22nm processors was supposed to be in April, but Maloney said that the launch has been delayed till well after Spring time frame. ”I think maybe it’s June now.”

However, when Forbes reached out to Intel, Jon Carvill from their Media Relations department said that the Ivy Bridge launch has been delayed by just ‘a few weeks’. Furthermore, Intel’s Dave Salvator confirmed with Tom’s Hardware that, ”The piece on Forbes has the correct information: our 3rd generation Intel Core launch is delayed by a few weeks, and we remain on track for our Spring 2012 launch time frame.”

So a few more weeks could mean that Ivy Bridge processors will hit the market in May. Hopefully Intel China’s VP had things wrong and we won’t have to wait for as long as June to see Intel’s 22nm goodness.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.

    there is no hurry. we dont want to re-live the sandy bridge fiasco that led to recall of motherboards that had some compatibility issue on the long run with the chipset.
