The next generation of Apple Macs and Windows 7 hardware is delayed to after June says a new report from the Asian Supply Chain.
The next big thing in computer hardware is the arrival of Intel's Ivy Bridge CPUs. Ivy Bridge is set to follow Sandy Bridge, which is the current Intel CPU generation. Digitimes reports that Intel has notified hardware makers that they delay the mass shipment of Ivy Bridge CPUs to after June.
Intel is still supposed to announce Ivy Bridge in April, but will only ship a small volume of the new chips.
The reason for the postponed Ivy Bridge roll-out is supposed the big inventories of Sandy Bridge CPUs at hardware makers and in Intel's warehouses.
What it means for consumers is that there will be no major performance upgrades for laptops and PCs from Apple and Windows hardware vendors until Summer.
