Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs Continued
Looking below you can see the die of the new quad-core chip with the HD 4000 graphics that takes up a large portion of the chip followed up with the four cores and below that the shared L3 cache which goes across all four cores and the graphics core.
On the far right there is the SA and memory controller while across the bottom we have the memory controller I/O. The big thing for the new processor, though, is the introduction of a 22nm manufacturing process. In the second image above we also get a really good break down of what each area does and the benefits it brings to the table.
Looking above you can see the "Tick Tock" strategy that Intel has been using. The next piece to the puzzle is of course the 22nm based "Ivy Bridge-E" chips which are rumored to be released in Q1 of 2013. It will replace the Sandy Bridge-E.
Looking above you can see some of the main features that are bought to the table with the new 22nm Ivy Bridge chip with one of the biggest being that new 22nm process. We've of course got leading performance thanks to Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading and improved overclocking features with higher CPU multiplier limits, more DDR frequency control and support for new XMP 1.3 RAM.
Expanding on the overclocking features you can see above some of the main advantages that are on offer from the new IVB platform with an increased multiplier, real-time core ratio change and higher DDR ratio to name just a few of the features.
