Intel accidentally confirms entire Ivy Bridge launch lineup
Friday, March 2, 2012 @ 8:50am

Intel committed one of its bigger gaffes in recent memory after it briefly posted a product list (PDF, since pulled) showing the Ivy Bridge processor lineup for launch. While there is the erroneous posting of a 3GHz low-voltage notebook chip, the listing shows both 17 desktop and 11 notebook chips that had been leaked earlier. About six desktop and at least one notebook chip are missing, although these are likely to be low-end Core i3 models arriving later.



On the desktop, the official choices shown so far would almost exclusively be quad Core i5 parts, ranging from a very low-power 2.3GHz i5-3570T to a 3.4GHz i5-3570. With the exception of the dual-core, 2.9GHz i5-3470T, the group would have 6MB of cache and go without Hyperthreading, leaving them to process four tasks at once rather than the Core i7's eight. Most will have the slower HD 2500 integrated graphics, with just two carrying the faster HD 4000. Notebook parts should start off with 1.7GHz, 1.8GHz, and 2GHz low-voltage Core i5 and i7 parts almost certainly destined for ultrabooks like the MacBook Air, while the regular dual-core group will range from a 2.5GHz Core i5 through to a 2.9GHz Core i7. Quad-core chips will all be Core i7s from 2.1GHz to 2.3GHz. All of these parts will be high-end, with Hyperthreading and HD 4000 video. Intel has already said that it might push Ivy Bridge to June, at least for some models. However, the listing is billed as a spring catalog and showed that Intel at least intended the parts to be available for much of the spring. [via ComputerBase]
