techfun89 writes "Intel will be introducing a number of new Ivy Bridge processors for desktops and mobile systems during the week of April 22-28, becoming available April 29. Originally the 29th was set as the quad-core desktop launch but now both versions of the chips will be debuting at the same time.

The core i7-3720QM and 3820QM chips that are released on April 29th appear to be good successors to the ones in current high-end 15 and 17-inch MacBook Pro units. Apple has reported that they will be slimming down the 13 and 15-inch models, so its not determined as of yet, how these changes will affect cpu decision making.

The launch on June 3rd expands the mobile computer front, adding six dual-core Core i5 and Core i7 processors, as well as a pair of ultra-low voltage dual-core chips. In the third quarter of 2012 there will be lower-end Core i3 processors to follow."
