Intel launches Ivy Bridge processor

Intel has formally launched its Ivy Bridge processor to the market (April 23). Ivy Bridge is the first device to be realeased officially on the company's 22-nm manufacturing process technology which includes FinFETs, which are transistors built into a vertical fin of silicon.

The launch covers quad-core devices aimed at desktop computers with dual-core devices for ultrabooks – Intel's term for thin notebooks – due to be announced later in the spring, reports said. The move from 32-nm Sandy Bridge processor to 22-nm Ivy Bridge should provide 20 percent more performance at 20 percent less average power according to one estimate.

The chip includes a graphics processor unit and DirectX11 support. DirectX is a collection of application programming interfaces (APIs) for handling multimedia tasks specified by Microsoft Corp.
