As you know, Intel is one of the well known companies which build the essential technologies and components for computers and other electronic devices. This company or the Intel is expected to launch its latest processor which is named as the Ivy Bridge and this launch is expected to take place at the last week of April. The launch of this processor is likely to be followed by the announcements of some new product such as laptops, and desktops. These announcements are expected to take place in the week in which the day April 23 come across or soon after it.
This processor named as the Ivy Bridge is going to be Intel’s biggest phrase on the announcement and all these is because of its high quality graphics. As it is, this processor comes alike the new A5X chip, the one on which Apple keeps much prominence and importance and the one by which the third generation iPad is powered. Graphics being well qualified and having magnificent quality enables you to witness the most considerable expansions and increasing benefits on the CPU. As a matter of fact, Intel has always been conventionally focusing on boosting the power, efficiency and performance of the CPU.
The rollouts of the processor are expected to be spread out even though the first announcement is likely to take place this month. According to Intel’s past doings, the quad-core chips were rolled out first which were the followed by the powerful processors which were inducted into the ultrabooks and the MacBook Air. There are many rumors about Apple coming out with a 15-inch MacBook model and 13-inch MacBooks which are likely to fuse this high-efficiency Ivy Bridge chips. Many more companies like the Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Sony, Toshiba, Acer, and Asus will like to update their systems with this new chip.
Coming to the technologies induced into this processor, the first thing which comes to the mind is the Intel’s 3D transistor technology. This Ivy Bridge is a chip which features 22-nanometer (Sandy Bridge is 32nm) and is going to be the first chip to use the Intel’s 3D transistor technology. As a matter of fact, 3D or vertical transistors have become a necessity as the dimensions of the device become small and hence the packing in of the transistors in the customary two-dimensional models become impossible. One more amazing fact is an USB 3.0 is built into this Ivy Bridge and this is something which Intel is doing for the first time. In-Stat, a Market researcher claims that nearly 400 million USB 3.0 enabled devices are going to be shipped in this year, the 2012.
