Intel Third-Geneartion Ivy Bridge Core Series

Performance results don’t lie. Ivy Bridge processors have exhibited significantly faster speeds than their planar-gate predecessors. Their Tri-Gate technology incorporates 3-D transistors that maximize current flow when in the on state and consume close to zero when off.

Also significant, Ivy Bridge is the first Intel processor series with direct support for DirectX 11, Microsoft’s latest graphics and multimedia APIs. On this score, Intel archrival AMD is no longer the only game in town. And as Intel promised, Ivy Bridge processors use the same sockets as Sandy Bridge parts.
