Report: Intel to launch Ivy Bridge on April 8

The first processors are apparently lined up for an April 8 launch. Digitimes reports that Intel will introduce 17 desktop CPUs and eight notebook CPUs that day.

According to the post, the company will launch the quad-core desktop processors Core i7-3770K, 3770, 3770S, 3770T, as well as Core i5-3570, 3550 and 3450 with tray prices between $184 and $332. The Core i5-3470T is scheduled for May and at $184, Digitimes wrote. The desktop CPUs will be complemented by the Z77, H77, Z75 and B75 chipsets initially, while the Q77 and Q75 will launch on May 13.

On the notebook side, the publication highlighted the Core i7-3920QM, 3820QM and 3720QM, which will be spearheading the mobile portfolio with tray prices of $1096, $568 and $378, respectively. Mainstream versions, including Core i5-3520M, 3360M, 3320M and the ultrabook CPUs Core i7-3667U and Core i5-3427U will be unveiled "later". The mobile chipset lineup will include the HM77, UM77, HM76 and HM75 in April and the QS77 and QM77 in May.

Intel declined to comment on the report.

    I think this is finally going to get me off of the Q6600. I've wanted to upgrade for a while now and they just look so nice.

    I still don't get the high price of mobile processors compared to desktop ones.
    They are slower than desktop processors and have some more power saving , but so do the desktop ones.
    Is it because Intel has no competition in the mobile CPU market?
