Ivy Bridge is the codename for Intel's 22 nm die shrink of the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture based on tri-gate ("3D") transistors. Ivy Bridge processors will be backwards-compatible with the Sandy Bridge platform, but might require a firmware update (vendor specific). Intel has released new 7-series Panther Point chipsets with integrated USB 3.0 to complement Ivy Bridge.Intel announced that volume production of Ivy Bridge chips began in the third quarter of 2011. Quad-core and dual-core-mobile models launched on April 29, 2012 and May 31, 2012 respectively. Meanwhile, Core i3 desktop processors are said to arrive in the third quarter of 2012.

Hi everyone. I'm not sure what to buy (i want a budget gaming laptop):
1) i5-4200u, r7 m265, 4 gb ram
2) i3-3217u, gt 740m, 4 gb ram
Can anyone help me?
If you know other specs arround the same price or have a opinion to share with me please replyâ€¦
This is CPU good for Gaming if the combination with GT 720M ???
Don't underestimate this processor… A laptop with this GPU paired with a Radeon HD 7670M or even a 7570M can handle Crysis 2 on high settings though may be not max…
