Ivy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 specs

A sharp pair of eyes at Guru of 3D spotted a pdf on an Intel site which has since been taken down.  While it is too bad we cannot give you the original PDF, Guru3D did post the pertinent information for those waiting patiently for Ivy Bridge to finally arrive.

As you can see the TDPs are impressively low, the desktop models ranging from 77W at the top end down to a 35W rating on the only dual core desktop model.  On the mobile side the TDPs range between 17W to 35W, with more than half of those models being dual core.   Also worth noting is the new graphics core, the HD4000 which is only available to two of the Core-i5 models, if you want the new core on a desktop then the Core-i7 is the way to go.  On the mobile side, all models are listed as having HD4000 which might help Intel compete against AMD's Llano as consumers will not have to investigate the Intel chip in their laptop to determine which level of graphics processor they possess.  Making a purchasing decision easier will go a long way to giving peace of mind to consumers that only want to spend their money and not their time researching before they buy.

Still no solid release date though.

I have to ask, why is the i5-3570K and the 3475S the only ones in the i5 range to get the HD 4000? Why not also on the 3570 non K, the S and the T versions also, it make a lot more sense on those to have it included instead of just on the 3570K which is the least likely to have the On Chip GPU used.

Edit: The HD 4000 should be standard on all the Quad Cores!!

I'd rather them cut the GPU from the chip and give me a lower TDP so I can get a higher overclock.

I agree, thats the way the k models should come initially since they're ment for overclocking.

I agree as well, but Lucid Virtu MVP suppose to be very promising. As a video editor the benefits of Quick Sync in the updated HD4000 GPU is something I look forward to reading when the review gets in, its supposed to be faster and more efficient, and hopefully more programs will take advantage of it.

I5-3330, I'm interested on this ones price. If its around $150 I'm really going to regret going AMD with my 960T.

I didn't get the first i7 (ie: 900 series) but did get an i7 860 for a great price at the time (~$900 in 2009).

I haven't felt like I'm missing too much with either six core processors that came out for 1366 and 2011. Or feel any need to "upgrade" to 1155 Sandy Bridge.

But with the specs for the new Ivy Bridge i7 3770t, it looks like I could get a little more performance, with a MUCH lower TDP.

Could come in handy when Summer temperatures arrive.

want the 3770 for my pcie 3.0 so new 7970 will finally take advantage of it, plus the o/c, 5 gig be nice, only @ 4.6 now with 2600k

Does anyone have any information on why IvyBridge seems to have so little cache, compared to the Sandy Bridges which have models with 9-12mb of cache?

uhhhh the cache is actually the same as on the sandy bridge chips...
