Today, a little ahead of schedule, Intel is launching its Ivy Bridge family of processors, the first to feature what it describes as a "3D transistor".

Originally, Intel was supposed to launch the new CPU family on April 29, but after the numerous delays, Intel decided to release it. Built around the 22nm manufacturing process, the Ivy Bridge CPUs feature Intel's 3D tri-gate transistors technology, which boosts power efficiency.

Initially, 13 quad-core processors of the Core i5 and Core i7 variety are hitting the shelves, most of them aimed at desktop computers. Unfortunately for the ultrabook lovers, dual-core and ultra low voltage Ivy Bridge chips will be delayed yet again until later this summer.
