Ivy bridge (Maho bay) to come out in first half of 2012


Intel has let it slide that the successor to it’s X58 processors will come with all of the expected specs. 22nm process, USB 3.0 support, DDR3 1600 RAM, and DX11 graphics. However these monster parts will not be shipping until sometime in the first half of 2012, which allows Sandy bridge owners to continue their reign as supreme CPU overlords for a little while longer than expected. (woo!)
