Intel announced the family of fourteen Ivy Bridge  dual core processors today. Six of them are designed for desktop computers. The remaining eight engineered for compact notebooks and ultrabooks  Some of them labeled by “U” have low power consumption and therefore could run longer time on the battery. Ivy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 are currently available and Core i3 will follow later.

Ivy Bridge processors have the same micro-architecture as previous generation of chips Sandy Bridge but provide better performance and lower power consumption.

First Ivy Bridge chips came out in late April. They had four cores and were designed for desktop computers and powerful laptops.

Intel is widely known as a company that introduced the concept of ultrabook, The concept was recently updated. The Company believes that current ultrabooks  must have high-speed USB 3.0 ports or Thunderbolt  and  built-in security. Ultrabook should run on battery power for at least 8 hours and download updates while in “sleeping” mode.

Intel claims that around 110 models of ultrabook will be powered by Ivy Bridge. 30 of them will have touch screens and 10 should be transformers like ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga.
