Intel tells its partners that they can expect around 20 percent performance increase from Sandy Bridge, which is roughly the same gain that Sandy Bridge had over Nehalem based CPUs. This is an optical shrink of the existing 32nm Sandy Bridge architectureas Intel traditionally takes a safe approach when moves from one manufacturing process to another. The 22nm part after Ivy Bridge is the one with the new architecture, while Ivy Bridge's first competition are Bulldozer and Llano from AMD.

Re: Intel Ivy Bridge to be 20 percent faster than Sandy Bridge? by Anonymous on Wednesday, April 06 2011 @ 04:33:36 CEST
If you truly can plug Ivy into Sandy Bridge notebooks, Intel is going to make an absolute fortune in 2011-2012. It's a very, very smart move that will improve SB sales, and truly make a sweeping uptake of Ivy when it arrives.
