more waiting, thanks..
to me not really a big deal, I'm still rockin' a sick i5-760 (phys-x) unit with a strong clock and optimal hardware to go with..
it's my AM2+ units with nVidia chipsets has me is waiting on AM3+ Bulldozer nVidia SLI boards (990X's) first anyways..:D
so go ahead and delay the launch but wait, AMD and Bulldozer is delayed again too...
WTF.? :pfff:
at least AMD/Bulldozer should be out this year.... LOL
hopefully like the report says in July or whatever.

The persistent rumors that Ivy Bridge would be out towards the end of this year made me hold out on going with SB, now about another year to go, I am getting an SB now (and probably regret it when IB does get here) =\

nobody knows that for sure..
I'm sure you have read the threads and other on-line info on it as well.
it's all speculation at the moment..

Good for Intel If amd want to make us wait.. we might wait until Ivy bridge and we might let pass bulldozer by then..

I'll probably end up with one of both Intel/Ivy and AMD/Bulldozer to be honest.
I do not know of course yet how these set-up will be, but one day..
whenever that will be.

How much you wanna bet this is because of preliminary reports of the performance of AMD's Bulldozer chips? All of a sudden, Intel isn't as afraid of the competition, so they start delaying chip releases to milk more out of the current ones.

Who cares if they're being released q1 2012.. they're releasing faster than SLOW AMD is.. Ivy Bridge is going to eat AMD alive.. downrate me all you want AMD fanboys.

Just to give this a positive spin for AMD, it could be yield issues causing the delay. I'm also not sure if the 3D architecture is all that well suited for faster clocks due to heat transfer issues.

I can't recall Ivy Bridge ever being slated for a Q4 2011 release, but if it ever was that's really old news. For as long as I can remember every leaked road map placed Sandy Bridge-E in Q4 2011 followed by Ivy Bridge in Q1 2012, so I'm not really sure what this article is talking about. But I guess Intel is being a little more ambiguous about their release schedule now, saying 1H 2012 instead.

First time I've heard of those issues...

Lower TDP, higher performance per watt, higher transistor density, lower voltages, significantly higher clocks thanks to faster switching speeds. All positives so far.

This is bad news for consumers but good for AMD so it can have more time to compete with Intel’s Sandy Bridge, and maybe with Sandy Bridge E.

How long has Bulldozer's release been "just around the corner"? It seems like it has been at least a couple of years.. It is beginning to seem like the DNF of CPUs.

Also, last November I was at a conference and I saw that same slide showing Ivy Bridge in late Q1/early Q2 of 2012. I suppose that since the slide is out there already I am no longer bound by the Intel confidential agreement (not an NDA but very similar to one, kind of like a weak NDA).

If the road map is right, does it mean that Ivy Bridge comes first in the mainstream segment? Sandy seems to hold extreme and premium segments allso in 2012...
Any news about that?

It will be worth the wait, for anyone who can hold out on building a new rig wait. Trust me it will be well worth it. Now I have said too much already and will leave it at that.

That's Sandy Bridge-E, X79, LGA 2011, in the high-end extreme segment. It's not the current LGA 1155 Sandy Bridge which Ivy Bridge is slated to replace in the performance/mainstream segments. Ivy Bridge isn't intended for the high end segment and will not replace Sandy Bridge-E on LGA 2011. Hopefully Intel intends to do a 22nm process shrink of Sandy Bridge-E later in the year as well, but this might not happen due to their tight tick-tock release schedule.
