As you all know, Intel announced the launch of its much anticipated 22nm Ivy Bridge processors earlier today. Intel is counting on these third-generation Core processors for the success of ultrabooks, which it hopes will be able to check the rampant growth of tablets and, in the process, conquer a large chunk of the mobile PC market. But ultrabooks will not be the only products to make use of Ivy Bridge chips; there will also be plenty of all-in-ones, desktops and notebooks. In all, over 570 Ivy Bridge-toting systems are expected to ship in 2012. The MSI GT70 and GT60 are two such products. Hit the jump for more.
Boutique system builder AVADirect readily admits it's "no secret" that it hasn't been offering Clevo-brand notebooks "for quite some time," and there was good reason for that. AVADirect was preparing for the next generation of notebooks built around Intel's HM77 chipset, which brings support for both 2nd generation (Sandy Bridge) and 3rd generation (Ivy Bridge) Core processors from Intel and native SuperSpeed USB 3.0 support.
