Intel is reportedly delaying mass shipments of its upcoming Ivy Bridge processor until June; although, a small volume will ship in early April, reports DigiTimes.

Because most first-tier notebook vendors are having trouble digesting their Sandy Bridge notebook inventories due to the weak global economy, while Intel is also troubled by its Sandy Bridge processor inventory, the CPU giant plans to delay mass shipments of the new processors to minimize the impact, the sources noted.

With Intel changing its launch schedule, notebook vendors have all started adjusting their projects for new Ivy Bridge models; however, the notebook vendors still believe the PC replacement trend is unlikely to start until after September, when Microsoft launches Windows 8, and the first three quarters of 2012 will still be a dark period for the notebook industry.


This is unfortunate news for those waiting to purchase the rumored new MacBook Pro or Mac Pro as Apple will likely wait for Ivy Bridge to introduce those devices.
