For a while now, all signs have pointed to a spring launch for Intel's 22-nm Ivy Bridge processors—but the spring is a pretty broad time frame. Thankfully, the rumor mill is able to offer a more precise (though unofficial) estimate.
Quoting unnamed sources at Taiwan's PC makers, DigiTimes reports that Intel has set an April 8 release date for its next-generation processors. That date will purportedly see the arrival of no less than 25 new chips; 17 of them will be aimed at desktop systems, while the remainder will target notebooks and ultrabooks.
DigiTimes lists a handful of model numbers for desktop Ivy Bridge CPUs to be priced between $184 and $332. However, past reports from other sources have provided more thorough descriptions of the desktop Ivy Bridge family. You'll want to check out this story at CPU World for more details.
