Intel to release Ivy Bridge-E processors in early September

The US chipmaker Intel has unofficially announced that the high-end high performance Ivy Bridge-E processors for socket LGA 2011 will be released in early September. The information has been spotted in an Intel Corp. document but so far has not been disclosed to the public.

According to the document the Ivy Bridge-E generation will be unveiled during the first or the second week of September but presumably before the upcoming Intel Developer Forum, which starts on September 10 this year.

Intel plans to release 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). Haswell-E processors will then follow these chips.

Just like the regular desktop Ivy Bridge LGA 1155 processors the new Ivy Bridge-E family will be drop-in compatible with the existing LGA 2011 infrastructure, although some motherboards may need a BIOS update. Analysts, however, do not expect a significant performance improvement when Ivy Bridge-E comes to market in three months time.

The pricing of the new chips is still unknown.
