Intel to release Ivy Bridge-E in September 2013

The arrival of Haswell in June of this year will soon be followed by the official release of the next generation high-end Intel chips – the LGA2011 Ivy Bridge-E generation. The chips were at first expected in Q3 2013 and later moved to Q4 2013 but the actual release has been pushed back to Q3 2013 with the arrival date expected in September of this year.

LGA2011 users should expect three Ivy Bridge-E processors – the Core i7-4960X (six core, Hyper-Threading, 15 MB L3 cache, 3.6 GHz clock speed/4.0 GHz in Turbo Mode, 130W TDP), Core i7-4930K (six-core, Hyper-Threading, 12 MB of L3 cache, 3.4 GHz clock speed /3.9 GHz in Turbo Mode, 130W TDP) and Core i7-4820K (quad-core, Hyper-Threading, 10 MB of L3 cache, 3.7 GHz clock speed/3.9 GHz in Turbo Mode, 130W TDP). All chips are fully compatible with the existing LGA2011 infrastructure – all you may need is a simple BIOS update and cash to get the actual chip.

The pricing of the upcoming Ivy Bridge-E chips is still unknown.
