Ivy Bridge roadmap: the new chips will debut in 2012

Ivy Bridge is the codename for Intel's next microprocessor. The Ivy Bridge processor will be a follow-on from the company's successful Second Generation Core (codenamed Sandy Bridge) technology. The Ivy Bridge chips will use the Sandy Bridge architecture, but unlike Sandy Bridge chips, which use Intel's 32 nanometre transistor technology, Ivy Bridge will be built on Intel's 22 nanometre technology.

Ivy Bridge's 22nm transistors will be based on Intel's 3-D Tri-Gate transistor technology, which allows for more transistors to be packed into a CPU. The smaller transistors and the new 3-D technology, which will see them sitting closer together, will allow Ivy Bridge to run faster and to be more power efficient than current Sandy Bridge CPUs. Furthermore, it will allow Intel to improve the integrated media and graphics performance of the CPUs.

The new chips will debut in 2012 and will be available for mainstream computers as well as servers. The CPUs for servers will also have integrated storage features.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
