Intel 2012-2018 Server CPU Roadmap Leaked!

Since 2007, Intel has been depending on the tick-tock model for developing microprocessors. The company announced that even in the future, it will still be using this strategy for Ivy Bridge’s inheritors: Haswell, Rockwell, Skylake and Skywell.

The plan was exposed by a leaked roadmap related to Intel’s upcoming server micro-architectures. The translated version of the leaked roadmap can be seen at ComputerBase. The agenda for release is also mentioned in the leaked document. According to the roadmap, the company’s plan begins with the launching of the first Xeon Sandy Bridge-E processors in fall of this year.

Apple Leak: Cinema Displays Will Have Thunderbolt

Ooops! It looks like some promotional images for Apple’s new LED Cinema display may have ‘accidentally’ leaked on the Internet, and MacRumours was able to get a couple snapshots before Apple took the images down.

The first image shows two Cinema Displays that are both hooked up to a MacBook Pro, indicating that the latest 27″ screens will support Thunderbolt. If you haven’t yet heard of Thunderbolt, it’s a means to transfer data at blazing speeds of 10Gbps.

New Macbook Airs Coming Soon!

According to a reliable leak, Apple is gearing up to launch updates across its Macbook Air lineup and sources say that the leak is 100% confirmed. This would be a timely update considering the last refresh was way back in December 2010.

The first batch of many will be around 400,000 units, and the most notable change of the new notebook will be Intel’s 32nm Sandy Bridge architecture. The Intel chips will utilize the ultra low voltage Core i5 and Core i7 chips, which feature between 3MB and 4MB of Smart Cache.

Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Due Next Year

We’ve all heard about Intel’s current Sandy Bridge processors that use a 32-nanometer process, but what about Ivy Bridge? The next-generation processor is set to launch in 2012 (not late 2011, as Intel had previously stated.) The new chip will utilize a 22-nanometer wafer and 3D tri-gate transistor technology, bringing a powerful and more efficient chip to the market.

For Mac fans all throughout the world, it is unlikely that you will see Ivy Bridge processors in mac products for *at least another year, so, Summer 2012. The processor itself is touted to be similar to the current Sandy Bridge platform, but, “on steroids.”
