Intel Develops 22nm Haswell CPU For 2013 Launch

Intel is currently working on its 22 nanometer Haswell computer chips that are due to come out in year 2013. Haswell will enjoy the same power-saving technology, known as tri-gate 3D transistor technology that was first developed in accordance with the Ivy Bridge chip.

Intel boasts on its blog that their floating-point multiply significantly increases peak FLOPS (floating operations per second) and provides enhanced precision to improve their mathematics.

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.”

iMac, Meet SandyBridge

Apple is refreshing its iMac lineup tomorrow. The new iMacs will have the all new Sandy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 processors from Intel. An Apple Insider, Kasper Jade said that Apple will release the new iMacs on Tuesday, May third and that the new Apple products will carry the high-speed Thunderbolt port.

The report also stated that the release of an update comes at an “important time for Apple since Macs have seen a decline in shipments.”

SandyBridge Intelligence On The New iMac

ave you been thinking about getting a new iMac but wanted a good reason to wait? The new iMacs due by the first week of May will feature the new Intel “Sandy Bridge” processors and come equipped with Thunderbolt. The Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs are currently the hottest 32 nanometer chips on the market. Although the new iMacs will be buffed up with the latest Intel architecture, there will not be any major cosmetic changes.

Thunderbolt ports feature data speeds of up to…
