Ivy Bridge


Recommended Posts

What exactly is Ivy Bridge? Is it a totally new chipset or is it a new line of sand bridge?

Intel's 3rd generation i3/i5/i7 (new processor series). They are backwards compatability with current 1155 socket mobo, but there will be newer chipsets that support more ports and slots (native pci-e 3.0, usb 3.0, and etc).

It sure is nice to see them adding support for the current chipsets but I hope it wont be painful to update the BIOS of the current boards to be able to install the new CPU.

 

Edit : BTW when it will be released in 2012 ?! in which quarter !!?!

From the Anandtech chart, it looks like the newer chipsets won't support Sandy bridge. Anyone have any ideas on why? Just because of limitations of the architecture not supporting what the chipset does?
