Ivy Bridge – Intel’s 22 nm die shrink of the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture

Ivy Bridge is the codename for Intel’s 22 nm die shrink of the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture based on tri-gate (“3D”) transistors. Ivy Bridge processors will be backwards-compatible with the Sandy Bridge platform, but might require a firmware update (vendor specific). Intel has released new 7-series Panther Point chipsets with integrated USB 3.0 to complement Ivy Bridge. The upcoming Core i-series processors based on the Ivy Bridge architecture are being pitched at ultrabooks, but the company is now extending the chips to high-performance tablets with Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 operating system.

Apple bringing out a thinner 15-inch MacBook Pro model in the coming months as well as 13-inch MacBooks. Those systems will likely tap Intel’s more power-efficient Ivy Bridge chips..then Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Sony, Toshiba, Acer, and Asus will update and/or bring out new systems.
