    Intel’s new chip bridges graphics gap

    Although the actual release of CPU chips these days includes about as much surprise as the New York Yankees being in the playoff chase, Intel managed to surprise industry experts recently with its new Ivy Bridge chip.
    The primary laptop processor chip makers – Intel, AMD, and ARM – have widely leaked roadmaps and analyst days where they reveal all of the features of the chips well ahead of the release date. Intel’s recently released Ivy Bridge family of CPUs followed that suit. Most of the chip’s features were known well ahead of the release, including a shrink in the manufacturing process, which allowed Intel to squeeze 1.4 billion transistors onto a quad-core die that’s about 26% smaller than its processor from last year, Sandy Bridge.
