BBC: Intel is launching 13 new "Ivy Bridge" quad-core processors featuring 3D transistors. "This is the world's first 22 nanometer product and we'll be delivering about 20 percent more processor performance using 20 percent less average power," said Intel's Kirk Skaugen.
According to Skaugen, the company is already experiencing high demand for the new product. "The momentum around the system design is pretty astonishing," he said. "There are more than 300 mobile products in development and more than 270 different desktops, many of which are all-in-one designs."
He added, "This is Intel's fastest ramp ever. There will be 50 percent more supply than we had early in the product cycle of our last generation, Sandy Bridge, a year ago. And we're still constrained based on the amount of demand we're seeing in the marketplace."
