Intel launches 3rd-gen Ivy Bridge processors

Intel just announced the arrival of the first 22nm quad-core processor in addition to their 3rd-generation Intel Ivy Bridge line-up.


The state-of-the-art processor, with its Intel HD 4000, promises to deliver better, if not twice 3D Graphics and HD Media processing performance than its predecessors. But it doesn’t stop there. Intel knows how important for people nowadays to share files to love ones, especially videos.

To answer that need, the new processor is armed with Intel Quick Sync Video 2.0 technology that hastens video conversion for a much faster upload. When Intel say faster, they mean twice as fast as the previous 2nd Generation processors and up to 23 times faster than their 1st gen procs.

Intel wants to make sure that they don’t just deliver ground-breaking performance, but they also keep their users safe from tech harm’s way as much as possible. That’s why, the new processor is equipped with Intel’s two security features, Intel Secure Key and Intel OS guard along with their pre-existing security features Intel Identity Protection Technology and Intel Anti-theft technology will definitely ward its users off any possible credential loss that may leave to hacking and eventually identity theft.

According to Intel, computers from leading manufacturers with this processor should be available later this month or early next month as well as the boxed version of it.

    It’s redundant. “3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Processors”? It should be either just “Ivy Bridge Processors” or “3rd Gen Core Processors”

      really? who the fuck cares dude

      ^ I do…a professional writer or a bloggger for that matter ought to be grammatically sensitive for him to be worth reading and credible enough! CNET Asia phrased it like this…”Intel’s third-generation Core-i processors, codenamed Ivy Bridge, go official today.” Isn’t it a joy to read when you are not deprived of the whole nine yards of information!

      Actually, I’m just a 3rd year HS student, going 4th year this June. I really don’t want to make a big deal out of the title. I just want to correct it hoping that it will be corrected immediately so that readers will not be confused. I corrected The Verge (theverge.com) once and all they did is change it and say “Thanks” to me. Can’t you just do that without cursing? Act professional or at the least, act more mature than a 3rd year HS student.

      ^ It really depends on the situation. Saying that on an article of a professional blog doesn’t really make sense and actually, the kid is helping, it’s just that other people don’t take it that way.

  2. ramon says:

    i agree..it’s not a 3rd gen ivy..it’s the 1st ivy bridge…

  3. michael says:

    i think its correct… 1st gen i7(dont know the codename), then the second gen was sandy bridge, then the third was ivy bridge…

    • booyah says:

      its the microarchitecture. should be 3rd gen Core. “1st gen i7″? funny. btw, pchub is doing pre-selling of ivy bridge procs.

  4. Ryuji says:

    I’m not usually into being a “grammar police” but I must admit that the title made me confuse for a split second :P

    wag nga kayo mag marunong… mag research muna kayo…

    @ topic

    sir yuga, is it locally available na po ba?

    • bavarian says:

      nasaan ang utak mo? kakarelease nga lang tapos locally available na? magresearch ka muna ogag. GMG. Google mo ga-go.

    I have read somewhere in laptopmag.com that the Intel HD 4000 (the gpu included with these processors) can play Batman Arkham City in almost 720p resolution with details set to low and DX11 disabled.

    http://blog.laptopmag.com/intel-ivy-bridge-tested-how-much-better-is-it

    It simply means that Ivy Bridge laptops can at least play some newer games just fine with its integrated graphics. This is quite a huge improvement compared to the Sandy Bridge graphics.

    That’s What intel always says when introducing their 1st and 2nd generation i3, i5,i7 cores “it can handle high end Games” http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33642_7-57415456-292/intels-ivy-bridge-arrives-heres-what-you-need-to-know/?tag=contentMain;contentBody;5n

      You can’t blame the marketing department to want to sell their products ;) Anyway, those issues are going to be addressed by Haswell anyway, and even before than, AMD’s Trinity is already on the way.

    When will these be available here in the Philippines? I plan on buying the i7-3770k for my new rig.

    An availability date of Apr 29 is what I’ve heard of. I don’t know if it’s applicable here.

  9. r41 says:

    My God, here we are with the release of a new batch of processors featuring a HUGE leap to the 22nm process and the people of the Philippines are talking about the title. Way to go!

  10. wtf002 says:

    Filipinos tend to make issues on the smallest of things and that’s true story.

    Why do i enjoy reading the comments more than the article? I like this site :)

    • Marc says:

      hahaha I’m with you on this one. Nakakatawang nakakatuwa talaga mga tao ngayon. As for the the topic, i agree the title is very wrong and misleading. :D This is a “tech blog site” people. Come on!

    We’re a bunch of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community.
    Your site provided us with valuable information to work on.
    You’ve done an impressive process and our entire group will
    probably be thankful to you.
