    Earlier this week, a report tabled the model numbers of Intel's 2012 Core processor family based on the "Ivy Bridge" silicon. Its processor model number scheme consisted of Core i5/i7 3000 series, targeting various market price points. Many of these model numbers are confirmed on the latest roadmap slide detailing the Core processor family for 2012. We are also getting to see what the nomenclature of next-generation Core i3 processors could look like.

    The slide shows that Ivy Bridge processors will start selling in Q2 2012, which is consistent with reports of an April 2012 launch. Intel will begin with Core i3-32xx (xx = TBD), i5-3450, i5-3550, i5-3570K, i7-3770, and i7-3770K. Around this time, there will be a market transition among cheaper Core i3 parts. In Q3 2012, i5-3470 and i5-3570 will displace i5-3450 and i5-3550; while a faster Core i7-37x0K processor will displace the i7-3770K. The market transition among some Core i3 parts will continue in Q3. Q4 2012 will largely resemble Q3, except that the lower-end Core i3 lineup will have fully transitioned to Ivy Bridge. There will be no changes in the LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E HEDT lineup, except that an affordable quad-core part will be added in Q1 2012. For quick reference, we re-posted the table from the older report.

    8/16 are Xeons, entirely different division. There are no Core 8/16 chips.

    i guess they will be release 8/16 in Q4 2012 maybe, i expect it will be 22nm on X79 chipset, named I7 3990X.

    Wile E; Just put the Xeon in your desktop system, that's what I do... (Research compatibility first of course)

    So I guess I did well to purchase a 3930K, not going to see that 8c/16t unless you want to go Xeon :ohwell:
    Damn I really hoped to have an UNLOCKED 8c/16t Intel chip, really :|

    Man, there's really no reason to upgrade, is there? Besides the usual itch, of course.

    SB-E is 6-core, which we've had for almost 2 years now.

    IV is still 4-core.

    And those poor fellows who bought an SR-2 with two 6-cores.. they won't have a reason to upgrade until they have grandchildren.

    This industry has taken a fall..

    Yep, atleast for gaming but believe me queue rendering across ethernet with two 6c/12t speeds up your schedule by a good amount, especially if clocked above 4ghz ;)

    Wow nice! This may not be a huge upgrade for some, but for me these will be much faster than my Q6600.

    Also why wouldn't people get the i7-3770T 45W? It looks like it has all the same specs as the normal i7-3770 but less watts and slightly less Turbo. Is there any other big difference?

    Yeah, but that's the thing..

    If I were to upgrade, I would not want to get a 3860x.

    If I upgrade, it would have to be for an SR-3 and two of those.

    That's the only way the upgrade will actually be noticeable and worth the effort.

    And then.. what am I supposed to do?

    A 16c/32t SB Xeon setup will likely still be top dog in 2020, seeing as the main competition has just gone belly-up.

    It's going to be like the people who opted for 5Mbps Cable back in 2000. They don't even need to upgrade today..

    It's just sad :shadedshu

    PC and Console game developers are killing the gaming industry for both platforms. Every single game should be based on multi-threading with the ability to switch over to single threaded for supported CPU's.

    i5-3470T with 35W TDP and i7-3770T with 45W TDP looks impressive.

    Regardless of pricing and regardless of potential performance promised, everyone knows Intel processors are going to be top of the heap.

    I personally don't see Intel's price being reasonable as they have no competitor.

    Although one can hope.

    No oc, more expensive, limited availibility and lower clockspeed.

    Sounds good to me I don't mind no OC, but to bad it cost more but I like the lower power as my Q6600 is power hungry.
