    According to the folks at CPU World, the chart below shows processor specs and model numbers for Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge CPUs.

    Why would they call them the "third generation". C2d was the "first", then nehalem type, then sandy bridge was "second", so why would ivy be "third"? Where are we on the tick tock?

    Its 3rd generation Core i3/i5/i7.
    Socket 1156/1366 was first gen.
    Socket 1155 Sandy Bridge was second gen.
    Socket 2011 Sandy Bridge-E and socket 1155 Ivy Bridge is third gen.

    Sandy Bridge and Sandy Bridge-E is on Tock
    Ivy Bridge and Ivy Bridge-E will be on Tick
    Haswell will be Tock
    Broadwell will be Tick

    Word "generation" is being tossed around a bit liberally these days. :)

    But intel says sandy bridge is the second generation of "intel core" processors. Which includes the core2 lineup as well as the later i3/5/7. So it makes little sense! :D

    I have some confusion..

    basically..SB is more data / encoding ( more cores ) oriented... IB line is more enthusiast / gamer..

    is that correct?

    Are you sure it's not 'Second Generation Core-i"?

    There are at least another two.

    1st - Core (Mobile)
    2nd - Core 2 (Conroe)
    3rd - Core 'i' (Nehalem)
    4th - Core 'i' (Sandy Bridge)
    5th - Core 'i' (Ivy Bridge)

    How did you get that?

    IB is like SB but better (in everything).

    SB-E is more Encoding/Rendering (more cores), where as IB is faster per core, so its gaming performance is likely better.

    I hate Intel's model numbering scheme.

    SB-E should have been i7-29xx. Death Princes is right, Intel does say SB is "second generation Intel Core" which is silly. That was Conroe back in 2006! Duh, "Core 2" was the 2nd gen Core microarchitecture.

    I'd almost call this the laptop/mobile version of Sandy Bridge. Apparently there's a modest performance in IPC but the clock speeds have stayed the same (for the most part) when compared to SB despite what would presumably be more headroom. It looks like they were going for efficiency above all else. Figure with AMD dropping the ball they can appease the enthusiast crowd with more OC headroom and the rest with the perf-per-watt. At 22nm these things should overclock very well. Slated for a March/April/May release too, no?

    These should be able to be dropped right into an 1155 P67 board, correct?

    Some boards. I know my P8P67Pro already has a BIOS update out to make it IB compatible, but that's no guarantee on your board. It'll depend on your manufacturer's support.

    They were supposed to be. Now it seems as if Ivy is going to require a an updated bios - an update that cannot be done by the end user.

    Wait what? An updated BIOS that goes beyond a flash? Well that would be a huge PITA, what source are you seeing that at?

    If the vast majority of the ivy bridge "k" processors overclock to 5GHz + territory then I might have to upgrade this lowly 2500k

    Isn't this the classifications?

    Socket 1156/1366 = 1st Gen
    Socket 1155/2011 Sandy Bridge/SB-e = 2nd Gen
    Socket 1155/2011 Ivy Bridge/IB-e = 3rd Gen

    From my perspective, they say 3rd generation from a pure marketing point of view :
    Nehalem : 1st Gen - i.e. core i5 750
    Sandy Bridge : 2st Gen - i.e. core i5 2500
    Ivy Bridge : 3st Gen - i.e. core i5 3500

    The Nehalem die shink from 45nm to 32nm (Westmere) was only for dual and six-core CPUs. Hence it didn't really count as a generation, it was only completing the quad core offering. Same could be said for SBe and IBe...

    Oh I see now.

    The original i7, like the 920, the leading 1 was implied. So it would be like

    First Generation - (1)920
    Second Generation - 2600
    Third Generation - 3770

    Like that?

    Yet SB-E has been given numbers that would imply the same generation as ivy bridge when clearly it isn't..........

    Do not try to read logic or meaning into manufacturer part numbers, that way lies madness.

    This article I saw yesterday leads me to believe that Intel plans to leave SB-E as its top-end enthusiast chip through all of 2012.

    <sits back and strokes 980X purchased recently at half-price>

    I was hoping for native hex and octo cores at the top of the list. Looks like a mere die shrink and on die graphics boost, unless someone can correct me. Hopefully it will OC towards the 5 GHz mark easier, otherwise, the hope comes from PCIE-3 and Quad Channel memory providing the incentive to upgrade. While Sandy-E may not see gaming bennies right now...I do some video encoding on the side. Wondering if I should plunk down and build a Sandy-E rig and drop an Ivy octo in down the looooong road....

    Well, SB-E is really an octo core with two cores disabled. So who knows, maybe that "> 3960X" for 2H12 is actually an octo core. Would certainly make my 1366 setup jealous.

    I have yet to see anything on prices for anything but the top chip. It would be nice to see a list of prices.

    It's easier to read when there are prices!

    Also, it is not what I would call a family. Few different chips with different speeds and nothing more. So Third Generation Core Family is Correct. i3,i5,i7 Make a family.
