Intel - Ivy bridge

Intel revealed some brief information about their new development - Ivy Bridge
After creating an alliance with Google's Android - it seems like Intel
do their best in terms of development. However on the other hand - their
pressure to get to the market on time may have some drawback for silicon
evaluation. We saw that already with Sandy bridge:

Changes Intel is aiming for in their Ivy bridge are not in well
established perihperals (as it would happen for ARM-licensees)
but core itself. Risk increases with fact that Intel seems to be under
pressure from competitors and ultrabook/tablet producers that will be
given choice with Win8 to go either to ARM or to Intel.
