    With eager OEMs such as ASUSTek, HP, Acer, and Lenovo breathing down its neck, Intel is reportedly pulling forward the official launch date of its 3rd Generation Core processor family based on 22 nm "Ivy Bridge" silicon, to the 23rd of April, from its older date of 29th April. 23rd April will be the day Intel announces all its processor models originally slated for the 29th.

    Notebook OEMs are expected to launch their products based on these chips at the earliest, by May. The date of market-availability of these chips in the retail channel, however, remains unclear. One possibility is that Intel will announce and make these chips available on the same day (23rd), while another possibility is that it announces these chips on the 23rd, allows the media to digest them (by posting reviews), and open them up for sale on the 29th. Two models every PC enthusiast and their cat are looking out for, are the Core i7-3770K and Core i5-3570K.

    If Asus does not announce the Maximus 5 Extreme, my 3770K will just be sitting around collecting dust.

    I hope they will talk about Ivy-E soon then, socket 2011 really needs to step up from 6 cores on the i7 lineup.

    Can't wait to grab a 3770K and overclock the shit out of the mother4ucker.:rockout:

    Throw in a 790/8970 and not even the 16 core Durango will be able to come close to it.

    Had an email from Intel who have confirmed that no such announcement has been made. If it is true though theres nothing to confirm this as yet. *sigh*

    Lol @ Internet and speculation.

    Intel won't tell you (OCUK, a retailer) things that don't concern you. If you say that Intel hasn't communicated anything new to you, then it can only mean one thing: April 23 is product launch and review NDA date; April 29 is retail availability date.

    You may indeed be correct however my question to intel was along the lines of "is IB launch moved to 23rd?" Response in short "no".

    Because in context of Intel-retailer relations, "launch" = the day you can sell/take orders from end-users. That differs from "launch" in Intel-press context.

    Sorry, my bad, it's the Formula that won't be out until May at the earliest.

    Not sure if they're planning an Extreme version as yet, but I know Asus has more boards coming, of which at least one will have Thunderbolt, alongside Gigabyte and MSI of course.
