Intel Delays Ivy Bridge Until June – China to Pass US In PC Sales
According to a report at the Financial Times, Intel is delaying the new Ivy Bridge platform until June of 2012 – pushed back from the original April launch time. Sean Maloney, Executive Vice President of Intel and Chairman of Intel China, explained how the delays are due to the new manufacturing process required to produce the 22nm chips.
Maloney also discussed China’s rapid growth in the PC and Smartphone market, expecting China to surpass the US in PC Sales this year and all phones in China to be smartphones by 2014.
“I think give it two or three years, and all phones in China will be smartphones, because the cost is going to be way way down.” – Sean Maloney, Executive VP Intel
