Intel Delays Mass Availability of Ivy Bridge Process until June

According to Digitimes, Intel has seemingly started informing partners that mass availability of its upcoming Ivy Bridge processors won’t be available until ‘after June’. However, the chip-making company is up to stick to its previous plans of introducing Ivy Bridge in April, but a limited number of shipments will be made at the given time. Mass availability of the chip will be possible somewhere around mid of this year.

Intel has recently informed its partners about its plans to delay mass shipments of its forthcoming Ivy Bridge processors. Still, the company says that it will be able to ship small amount of its new processors on its previously scheduled time. Also, the company will continue to introduce new products during that time. Sources from notebook players claim that mass availability of Ivy Bridge chips will not be possible for Intel before June.

According to report, the delay from Intel is perhaps because of the fact that it holding off to bring down its own oversupply of existing Sandy Bridge chips and its partners’ PC stocks, which have been selling at slower pace than expected, as users continue to refrain from buying new computers.

A good number of Apple fan-base is anxiously waiting for the Ivy Bridge to arrive, as it is supposed to be the processors that are expected to be a part of next updates of Apple’s Macs.

There are variable reports claiming that Apple is hoping to use Ivy Bridge chips in a redesigned MacBook Pro, taking a number of designing cues from the MacBook Air. Perhaps, the new design will be a mix of two ranges. There is an ambiguity in the minds of many observers regarding the launching time of the redesigned MacBook Pros and Ivy Bridge processors, whether Ivy Bridge will be available in sufficient amount for Apple to upgrade its MacBook Pro.
