Intel Delays Some Dual-Core Ivy Bridge CPUs
Intel denied having changed the product plans it had in place however the dual-core laptop units seem to be the exception. More precisely, due to the large supply of Sandy Bridge central processors, the Santa Clara, California-based company is putting off the release of dual-core mobile units.
That means that all the desktop components will be up for sale as planned, and the same goes for most of the notebook platforms.
Nevertheless, both standard voltage and ULV (ultra-low voltage) dual-cores are subject to the delay, while the Core i3 chips have been pushed back even further, all the way to August or September instead of May/June.
The supply of Sandy Bridge CPUs is said to be so high that not only are vendors overstocked, but also even Intel's own warehouses still have shipments that, had sales been better, would have been sent out quite a while ago.
For those that know about the different sorts of notebooks out there, this all means that strong consumer and business PCs will be updated soon enough, but ultrabooks won't be so lucky.
This puts a damper on the hopes that the new, super-thin machines would drop in price. While they will, eventually, become cheaper, this will happen at a slow enough rate that only in 2013 will they be considered affordable.
