According to Hermitage Akihabara, Intel Ivy Bridge-E processors will arrive in just 2 months on September 11th. These new bridges are expected to stay ahead of the Sandy Bridge-E line up but shall work on the same socket and X79 chipset with a BIOS update. New amendments of X79 motherboards with BIOS updates will be issued for release to most of the sellers. With its launch, we will see the Intel Core i7 4960K, 4930K and 4820K all releasing too.
The i7 4820K consists of four cores at 3.7 GHz , a super fast frequency of 3.9GHz, 10MB of shared L3 cache and some art of it is overclockable. The i7 4930K has an unlocked multiplier, a base speed of 3.4GHz, a turbo boost of 3.9GHz and 12 MB of shared L3 cache. Finally the i7 4960K also offers an unlocked multiplier, 3.6GHz base clock speed, 4GHz turbo and 15MB of shared L3 cache.
Besides this, there is also a high probability that we would be able to see i7 4970X in either second or third quarter of the year 2014, which will have an unlocked multiplier with 3.8 GHz base speed and 4.1 GHz turbo plus with a 15MB of shared L3 cache.
The latest Ivy Bridge processors could also come up with a new chipset or chipset modification offering SATA III 6 Gbps ports and integrated USB 3.0 but this is still not confirmed yet.
