Feel free to run up and down your block screaming, "Ivy Bridge is coming! Ivy Bridge is coming!" That's not something you would have wanted to do prior to today, because if a fellow pedestrian grabbed you by the arm and demanded to know exactly when Ivy Bridge would roll into town, all you could have offered in return was a bunch of conflicting info . But in this day and age of the Internet, leaked slides are as commonplace as cockroaches in a dirty motel, and we found one that details precisely when Ivy Bridge will launch.
Assuming the slide obtained by Turkish website Donanimhaber.com is real -- and they usually are -- Intel's 22nm Ivy Bridge launch will take place on April 29, 2012 and consist of the following desktop CPUs:
A second batch of Ivy Bridge chips will follow on June 3, 2012 and include the following models:
More Core i3 and Pentium models will follow in the "Holiday" period, though the slide doesn't mention which ones. In regards to chipsets, Intel will roll out the Z77, H77, Z75, and B75 for desktops and HM77, UM77, HM75, and HM75 for notebooks.
