Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks to Launch at Computex, June 5

Updated on 24 April 2012 by

COMPUTEX_2012Computex, Taiwan, is one of the most important trade shows for the laptop market and this year it coincides with the availability of low-power Ivy Bridge CPUs for Ultrabooks so it makes sense that Intel and their customers seize the moment to launch the 2nd Generation of Ultrabooks.

In an article at Techworld.com, Scott Pendrey, desktop product manager at Intel, gives us the information that “the first ultrabooks featuring Ivy Bridge processors will come to market on 5 June, with more to follow throughout 2012.”

Article – Ultrabook 2012 Timeline. We predict the first models to be available towards the end of June.

Ivy Bridge will bring a small efficiency and/or performance improvement to Ultrabooks but the main improvements are in 3D graphics and media support. We’re seeing reports of at least 70% improvement in 3D performance and we expect a huge number of games to go from ‘not playable’ to ‘playable.’ Video encoding and decoding processes will also get a boost which is great for those wanting to crunch movies for their iPads and for those wanting to do some video editing.

We’re expecting a huge Ultrabook show in and around Computex and should be reporting direct from Taipei in June so stay tuned.
