Intel , the leading manufacturer of microprocessors in the world, today announced the first wave of next-generation chip, code-named Ivy Bridge . In the first batch included 13 quad core chips clocked at rates 22-nanometer manufactured by the process of three-dimensional transistor Tri-Gate.

Ivy Bridge processors were distributed between the rulers Core i5 and i7. In the next-generation chip processor, Intel is betting on graphics performance, which, according to the manufacturer exceeds the GPU Sandy Bridge chips by 60 percent. It should also be noted that Ivy Bridge chips are different native interface support USB 3.0.

Models range i3, part of a series of i5, and ULV chips class will go to the market by the end of spring. Productivity gains of Ivy Bridge processors over the previous generation (Sandy Bridge) was 20 percent, and reduced power consumption while at the same 20 percent. Intel Ivy Bridge processors is set to debut with companies MSI , Asus and Lenovo .
