    Sandy Bridge E delayed to 2012

    Like with Ivy Bridge, it seems Sandy Bridge E is delayed to 2012:

    With all the people moaning about AMD delaying processors,it seems Intel is also having issues this year too together with the B2 chipset problems.

    Re: Sandy Bridge E delayed to 2012

    Fail, if thats the case I may skip Sandy Bridge E and get a Ivy bridge chip and sell on my i7 920, Wont get the 6 cores but I will get a much faster CPU which clocks better and uses less power.
    At this rate Ivy Bridge E wont be that far behind Sandy Bridge E in terms of release date lol.

    I doubt Intel are doing this because of problems or manufacturing delays - much more likely because there is no competitive pressure at the high end...

    How do you know this for sure??

    Maybe there are problems and trying to act like Intel has had no problems before is stretching things. Remember the B2 chipset issue this year??

    Like I mentioned before with Ivy Bridge people tend to be too gullible when it comes to marketing.

    Can't be sure either way, but often when there are manufacturing issues there are rumours about them... I just think it's more likely they are stalling or feet dragging out of choice, there is little to compete with high end offerings already out. Perhaps Intel even have one eye on not becoming "too dominant" and attracting regulator attention again, who knows... could be hundreds of theories...
