We brought you the launch date of the AMD Trinity APUs and, now, we get to tell you when the Intel Ivy Bridge series of CPUs is finally going to show.
After being delayed by a few months (and let's not even get into what the “broken” CPUs are all about), the next-generation chips will come out on April 23 (2012), according to Chinese VR-Zone.
Previously, the most accurate estimate was that the processors would be formally unleashed between April 22 and 28, while mass availability was scheduled for April 29.
We think the newest report means that the products really will start selling on that day, but you never know.
It should be mentioned that the list of upcoming models doesn't include the Core i5-3550S or the low-power i5-3570T and i7-3770T.
On the bright side, the prices of $182-$320 (139-245 Euro) seem to be $2-$12 lower than initially thought (1.52-9 Euro).
