Intel supposedly delaying Ivy Bridge shipments to partners

If you’ve held off on buying a notebook the past couple of months, waiting for Intel to drop their new, next generation Core processors codenamed Ivy Bridge, you’re going to be waiting for quite a bit longer. According to a report at DigiTimes, Intel has supposedly notified its partners that it’s postponing mass shipments of its Ivy Bridge chips because of a number of factors. While the chip manufacturer will still announce and ship a small number of chips, mass quantities of the Ivy Bridge won’t be sent until June. The report cites the troubles of manufacturers “digesting” current generation Sandybridge chips because of the weak global economy, a problem Intel is also supposedly having.
