    Does this mean I'll be able to pick up a cheap 2500k soon?

    If the recent launch of the Core i5 2550K is anything to go by,NO!

    Re: News - Ivy Bridge mass shipments delayed by Intel until June

    Doh! I know I am only one potential customer, but I've been putting off buying a new PC because I'm waiting for Ivy bridge (and Win8 (intedned to try the pre-release), and Keppler (which was going to be an upgrade when available). Each and any delay simply makes it more and more likely I'll cut the faff and wait for the full Win8 and set it up 'properly' all at once now. So their delay will equate to a slightly longer delay in my purchase. One thing it most certainly does not do is encourage me to buy from the old lineup instead of waiting.
    :-s

    PS - Some companies I know are holding back their roll-out of upgrades until Ivy Bridge too (I've no idea where they stand on Win8 - they've only decided to like Win7 for urgent upgrades in the last 6 months).

    Sandy Bridge is already a ridiculously fast chip - I can't think of a current situation where you would need Ivy Bridge instead.

    Exactly. They don't need to rush to beat any competitors. They could probably delay until 2013 and still be on top of AMD many times over.

    I was waiting for Ivy Bridge too so this is disappointing news for me. I'll still wait for it even when Sandy Bridge is fast enough because i'd hope to make use of the media encoding improvements from the 4000 Video core and pair it up with a 7 series board for PCI-E 3 and native SATA-III/USB 3 onboard.

    Re: News - Ivy Bridge mass shipments delayed by Intel until June

    The thing is 22NM has been ramping up supposedly from late last year and there was noise about lauching some 22NM chips late last year too. So either Intel is going to have a metric **** ton of CPUs to sell in June,or either the ramp up is not happening as quick as they want to.

    Despite the weak economy,Sandy Bridge was launched ahead of schedule and there was loads of previous generation CPUs still easily available.

    It will be interesting to see how good retail availability is though.

    Mobile devices,which is the whole point of Intel using 22NM Trigate transistors. Extra battery life and less cooling requirements. For the UltraBook market,Ivy Bridge will be far better suited than Sandy Bridge. For desktop users,only possibly the enhanced features of the IGP might be of use.

    I am actually looking forward to it myself being a SFF PC fan but SFF PC fans are probably a tiny part of the DIY PC community though.

    I'm holding back because I don't need to upgrade really and I want my next upgrade to be good for another 5 years at least.
    I was going to upgrade to an i5-2500K based system from my Q6600 system but the i5-2500k is less than twice as fast on average and I can get by.
    By waiting for IB, I get*:
    USB3.0 natively built in. I don't want 3rd party controllers.
    PCIe 3.0 - PCIe 2 is fine for now but it'll probably be a bit of a bottleneck in 5 years time.
    Lower total system power consumption - idle and peak and maybe a low enough idle to just leave it on permanently.
    Marginally improved performance across the board.
    Hopefully faster video transcoding.
    Hopefully higher memory capacities but I suspect that the larger than 8GB DDR3 modules will never be cost effective and DDR4 will be the one to hit that sweet spot.

    However, with that said, Trinity seems to be worth a second look. I'm hoping that AMD have a decent transcoding engine built in to it and substantially higher single threaded performance.
    The power consumption of Llano is all ready ridiculously low so if it stays the same or gets better then that's fine.

    * All of this is speculation. Some of it more speculative than others.

    Re: News - Ivy Bridge mass shipments delayed by Intel until June

    This is disappointing. As a hardware junkie/enthusiast I was planning to buy a K series 1155 ivy bridge on release, perhaps mainly because my current 2500k is not an amazing overclocker.

    I know for a "fact" that mobo manufacturers have had ES silicon of ivy since last summer, so I don't understand this delay except for Intel getting rid of old inventory etc. Which is reasonable from a business point of view, but terrible for enthusiasts. Just goes to show what happens when the competition is not good enough

    Here's hoping future ARM processors are able to present the Intel behemoth with some actual competition in the consumer sphere.... time will tell!

    I care not for Ivy Bridge, very little I do is CPU bound, especially when it comes to gaming and with the emergence of GPGPU, intensive number tasks and rendering are becoming less bound to the CPU, I'm just hoping this doesn't affect the NVIDIA Kepler announcement.

    well if anything it will tie in closer to win8 really. Potential for some bargains, i think we might see some tasty laptop deals.

    Re: News - Ivy Bridge mass shipments delayed by Intel until June

    First I was waiting for Sandy Bridge, then Intel screwed up the initial chipsets so I waited for Z68, by then Bulldozer was around the corner so I thought I'd see what AMD would come up with, disappointed with bulldozer I decided to wait for Ivy.

    Guess I'll be rocking my Q6600 for a little longer...
