Web sites, blogs and media outlets in Europe and the U.K. are starting to post some early Ivy Bridge stories, which means that the Intel information embargo about the Ivy Bridge processor must be nearly about to expire. From what I have been able to determine, the information embargo is actually set to expire at 5PM UTC time, which would be 10AM here in Colorado. Once the embargo expires, there should be lots of more detailed stories with benchmark results. In the meantime, here are some links to these early stories.
