Intel to launch Ivy Bridge-E in Q3 2013
| by Roydon Cerejo |
A leaked slide from Intel reveals its plans to launch Ivy Bridge-E in the third quarter (Q3) of 2013. The CPU will thankfully re-use the same LGA 2011 socket that was used by Sandy Bridge-E and will most likely be an up-scaled version of the current CPU. The Ivy Bridge-E chips will be based on the same 22nm fabrication process, only with more cores, memory channels and PCIE 3.0 interfaces. While the socket remains the same, we have yet to see if Intel will launch a brand new chipset just for Ivy Bridge-E.
The roadmap for next year
The performance gains found in the new processors are due in part to the three-dimensional structure of the new Intel transistors. Until today, computers, servers and other devices have used only two-dimensional planar transistors. Adding a third dimension to transistors allows Intel to increase transistor density and put more capabilities into every square millimetre of these new processors. Intel has once again re-invented the transistor and delivered a combination of performance and energy efficiency, thus sustaining the pace of technology advancement and fuelling Moore’s Law for years to come. The third generation Intel Core processor features Intel HD Graphics 4000 that delivers up to two times better 3D graphics performance compared to the previous-generation processor. Intel HD Graphics 4000 supports Microsoft DirectX11, OpenGL 3.1 and OpenCL 1.1.

More cores, more performance, but do we really need it at all?
