Intel Ivy Bridge - Third-generation processor in pictures

Nano-transistors powering big gains in power and efficiency

Intel's third-generation core processors

According to Intel, its new Ivy Bridge processor family will provide a substantial increase in computing horsepower while simultaneously improving efficiency. We take a look at what all the fuss is about.

The heart of the matter

Intel's new 22nm chips utilise a three-dimensional architecture to dramatically improve the relative efficiency of a processor, creating the possibility of better performance with less energy use.

The architecture

While dual-core Ultrabook chips are due to be rolled out within a month or two, Intel said, the company foregrounded its quad-core design in this week launch.

The chip

The Ivy Bridge chip itself, though we can't see the 22nm architecture at this zoom level. Next up, we look at a couple of products taking advantage of Intel's new technology.

Nikiski

The Intel concept, which demoed at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this January, features a translucent screen and innovative touch-sensitive technology, allowing it to serve as either a laptop or a tablet. However, no word was available on when the futuristic device could be heading to market.

IdeaPad Yoga

Another combination tablet/laptop, this slick-looking hybrid will be one of the first devices to marry Ivy Bridge to Windows 8's new user interface options.

Traditional or touchscrene

At Ivy Bridge's launch, Intel noted that 65 of the 570 total new products based on its framework would be all-in-ones. ASUSundefined ET27 can be used either in the traditional way or laid flat on its back and operated via touchscreen.
