LeakedTT: Three Intel Ivy Bridge-E SKUs appear in the wild, could arrive as early as September 4th

Leaks abound around Intel's upcoming Ivy-E - release date, SKU and pricing inside

This morning a slide surfaced that appears to be part of an Intel presentation and details information about the upcoming enthusiast platform from Intel, Ivy Bridge-E. The slide appears to be legit, but faking a PowerPoint slide is not very hard, so keep that in mind while reading.

The leak comes from website HardwareLuxx and gives us a new release date as early as September 4th, which is two months earlier than previously speculated. The slide also alludes to a very strict NDA around the new processors. The slide also discloses that the new Ivy-E processors are built on a 22nm process based on Intel's 3D Tri-Gate Transistors.

Continuing the leak, CPU World has posted information on processor SKUs starting with the i7-4960X, featuring 6 cores (12 threads) at 3.6GHz with turbo up to 4GHz and includes a total of 15MB L3 cache. This is the top-end SKU, which should retail for $999-$1099.


Up next is the i7-4930K, 6 cores (12 threads), but has its clock speed set at 3.4GHz with turbo up to 3.9GHz and 12MB L3 cache. The final SKU is a little more interesting - the i7-4820K. The "K" denotes this part is unlocked, but it is only a quad-core (8 threads) part with 10MB L3 cache.
