Intel confirms delay on Ivy Bridge, June launch expected

Intel will push back its launch of the Ivy Bridge processors to June, confirming what many had rumored. The delay is said to be due to fab issues rather than demand as the Ivy Bridge wafers use the latest 22nm “tri-gate” process node.

The delay, however, will not hurt the company much as it feels the AMD Bulldozer chips are not competitive — and manufacturing Sandy Bridge processors for the next few months won’t hurt. Still, the delay either way is not good for Intel — getting its products into devices using its Medfield Atom Chip out the door in a timely manner is critical.

Sean Maloney, executive vice-president of Intel and chairman of Intel China, said in an interview with Financial Times “I think maybe it’s June now,”

Mr Maloney also said the global launch of a series of Intel-powered smartphones would follow the launch in China of the first such handset – a Lenovo phone – in April. He said the Intel-powered Lenovo phone would become available in other countries four to five months after its China launch.

The comments come after Lenovo said last month it intended to push sales of its smartphones in emerging markets outside China this year. Lenovo is China’s largest leading Android phone brand.

Mr Maloney had been viewed as the most likely candidate to succeed Paul Otellini when he steps down as chief executive in 2015, but this career prospect is now less clear after he suffered a stroke in early 2010. Mr Maloney took over as Intel China chairman in July last year, a newly-created position through which the company hopes to give the Chinese market more weight.
