none of the desktop parts that were originally meant to launch have been delayed and on the mobile side, only the dual core models have been pushed back.


=================
To benefit the notebook vendors and USB 3.0 chipset makers. The notebook replacement trend is unlikely to start until Win 8 ships late Summer.

Intel recently notified its partners about plans to postpone mass shipments of its upcoming Ivy Bridge processors. Despite that the company will still announce the new products and ship a small volume of the processors in early April, mass shipments are not expected to occur until after June, according to sources from notebook players.

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.

Has any of this been confirmed or is this speculation from digitimes? Just asking because digitimes also wrote today that nvidia will be releasing 8 different Kepler cards in April which I find very hard to believe. Just asking because I don't no how reliable digitimes has been in the past.

Nvidia is expected to have at least eight models of graphics cards in April including GTX690, GTX660 and GTX640 with GK110, GK104 and GK106 cores.

Hopefully that large inventory of Sandy Bridge chips will bring us massive discounts.

I would buy a 2500K for $100.

One day for sure. Probably within 6 months or so. Maybe even when Ivy Bridge comes out. :)
