As expected Intel is going to release a new lineup of processors based on the “Ivy Bridge” Architecture on a 22nm die. The main cause of the huge shift from the 32 nm to 22 nm is the 3D tri gate transistor technology. This 22nm die size is a enormous jump by intel as it will tend the processors to be far more effective and draw lesser power.
Intel for the previous couple of years seems to be going on a “Tik-Tok” Cycle.
The cycle obviously indicates that in the ‘tik’ intel goes to a smaller die size and in the ‘tok’ they modify the processor architecture. And this “tik-tok’’ can be obviously seen over the years beginning from 2009 and carrying on up till now.
Let’s see what intel holds for us in 2012. The ivy bridge is announced to be released in April 2012.
Primary Attributes of Ivy Bridge
- 3D Transisitor technology
- PCI Express three. Help
- RAM Help upto 2000MHz
- CPU Multiplier 63 ( previously 57 for Sandy Bridge)
- On chip Intel HD Graphics with DirectX 11 help
The models that are included in the Ivy Bridge loved ones are stated to be named after the predecessor Sandy Bridge only to be in the series 3000 and are said to run on LGA 1155 Chipset.
Now let’s speak about the competition Intel has, for the current few years Intel has been ruling the Processor market all over the planet. Despite the fact that AMD appears to come up with new and high performance processors from time to time but nevertheless AMD has failed so far. They have produced a processing unit named “APU-Accelerated Processing Unit” which is a combination of CPU and GPU on the identical silicon chip! Last year in October AMD released the lengthy awaited line up of its BULDOZER Architecture. But as the Processor was reviewed it was proved that it was unable to compete even with the Intel Core i5 Processors. AMD tends to introduce an updated Bulldozer lineup with PileDriver based on 32nm die which is similar than the Intel Sandy Bridge Architecture. But nevertheless AMD has to make a run for it because intel is going to hit the market soon in with the 22nm Ivy Bridge.
Suggestion: We advise our readers not to acquire any pc hardware until April, a lot of new technologies are coming to market in the Q2 (2nd Quarter) 2012 with less expensive rates and much better performance. For far more data remain tuned!
