Ivy Bridge is almost here

[ Edited ]

 

Hi, guys,

 

    It looks like Ivy Bridge is arriving this month after all.

 

    There are numerous articles about it on the web, such as this one:

 

HP is due next week

 

    Wither the "W530"?

 

    Ready for another round of beta testing?

At the top of the article, there's an update

 

"Editors' note: HP has just clarified that these laptops will be using Sandy Bridge processors together with the new Panther Point (Intel HM77) chipset. Updated April 6, 11:46am (+8 GMT)"

Re: Ivy Bridge is almost here

This isn't specific to any single manufacturer, but should give you some reading material for awhile.

Re: Ivy Bridge is almost here

Great catch, stasik.

 

So, since the ordering information for the W530, for example,  is already in the retail fulfillment chain, Lenovo presumably will announce their Ivy Bridge/Kepler machines on April 29.

Re: Ivy Bridge is almost here

I'm dying to see test results of Nvidia's killer GTX 680M Kepler-based mobile graphics processor (and workstation sibling) when it finally comes out, although that may take a bit longer (and may only ship in 17" machines). But it should have roughly 3.4 times the performance of the Quadro 2000M.

Interesting comparison of pre-release Ivy Bridge machine with W520.

Re: Ivy Bridge is almost here

Will keyborad be replaceable by good old classic from T520?
I dislike Edge-styled keyboard. It's not thinkpad with such unusable keys.
