Intel has introduced its 22nm third-generation Core processors, codename Ivy Bridge. The new chips replace the company's second-generation Core processors, codenamed Sandy Bridge. Computer manufacturers and OEMs will be updating their current models with the new processors and introducing completely new laptops and desktops that use the 22nm processors.

The reviews are already starting to pile up. At first just the quad-core versions are going to be available — ultra low voltage and dual-core Ivy Bridge processors are slated to come out later this spring — so the reviews only cover two of the beefier chips offered by Intel today: the 3.5GHz Core i7-3770K for desktops and the 2.6GHz Core i7-3720QM for laptops.

Anandtech and PC Perspective spent some time with a reference 15.6-inch Asus N56VM laptop using Intel's new 2.6GHz Core i7-3720QM, and the good news for mobile users is that the integrated graphics have come a long way, just like the chipmaker promised. Anandtech ran the processor through a litany of modern games on medium detail settings at 1366 x 768 and, on average, integrated graphics performance on the HD 4000 was nearly 50 percent better than on Sandy Bridge's HD 3000 graphics, making "medium quality gaming now possible" on mobile.

I reed on Tom's Hardware, its practically 3-7 frames better on same clock, which is actually good considering this is ''Tick''.

I stopped blindly trusting that site once I heard they accept money from Intel and possibly favor them in the benchmarks.
