Default Intel Releases 3rd Generation Core Processors

Intel this week has launched its long-awaited Ivy Bridge processors, ushering in both 22nm and tri-gate era. As the third-generation Core product, it'd be expected that some nice features would be present and performance improved, and that's just what we got. While performance improvements are not going to be major in most cases, Ivy Bridge proves to be the best processor Intel has ever released, for a number of reasons.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!

30w less power under load, $20 cheaper, and 5-10% faster on the CPU-side. Pretty good.

Can't wait to see some low voltage or CULV versions in laptops! 0.9v at 4Ghz is pretty darn nice already...
