About 20%, going from ~100W to ~80 W TDP at the high end. http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/ivy_bridge_benchmarks_specifications_and_q2_2012_release_date_leak

very slightly. But that's a knock on effect from being slightly late out with sndybridge last year. And they already adjusted their dates, so technically, they are not running late :)

MP, I would imagine they simply start working on current and future CPUs... engineers are not one trick (or one CPU) ponies after all! :)

@Sylvie Barak: one question -what happens to the engineering staff that supported those 25 CPU's? @Kris: I suppose the wait is not long for new laptops and desktops that feature IvyBridge. Most box makers will be privy to advance samples for designing it in any way. My tag-along question would be when are Panther Point samples going to be available? MP Divakar

Is the 22nm "Tick" running a bit late in the Tick-Tock scheme (re: initial shipments in April)?

May? It's typically not that long after. Last year SandyBridge PCs were available within a couple of weeks of launch... that's when I bought my new Sony Vaio. It was worth the wait then, so I'd recommend to anyone thinking of upgrading to hold out for that extra month!

For you, my friend, good deal, half price, $50.... (not including postage, packaging, police bail, or unemployment support for when you get busted! ;) )

Wonder if I can get some engineering samples on Ebay? - joke

With Ivy Bridge coming out in April how long do we have to wait for a new PC to show up? Kris

The transition has to be managed well to avoid too much old stuff in the inventories of computer makers or business interruptions as there is sure to be some hiccups as the new CPU is incorporated into designs.
