    The 2012 iMacs are going to have the Ivy on it when they come out.

    I've heard of Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge, but not the rest. But then I also don't look for info on new machines that far out.
    These new processors are making me really think of when I want to get an iMac. I was planning to get a current gen from the refurb store in Jan or Feb. But if the new ones are supposed to come out around then, then I may have to wait and see.

    From all the specs that I find on the 2012 iMacs, it really cooks with a noticeable upgrade with the Ivy processor..
    Here's a little more info. for ya.

    Intel leak details chips that will likely go into 2013 Macs



    A report from VR-Zone (via Engadget) claimed to show Intel’s plans for its fourth-generation Haswell processors. These are expected to be released in the second quarter of next year and are the likely follow-up to Ivy Bridge for Apple’s next round of Mac refreshes (unless Apple switches to AMD, ARM, or something). Previous leaks showed Intel plans to release the Haswell processors between March and June 2013, and today’s leak, if accurate, gives us a look at all 14 new desktop CPUs expected in the Haswell launch.

    The top of the lineup CPU in the Haswell lineup is a 3.5GHz Core i7, 3.9 with Turbo Boost, with a 8MB cache and a TDP of 84W. The low-voltage 35W end of the lineup goes down to a 2.9GHz Core i5. The roadmap also makes a reference to integrated graphics, listing Intel HD 4600 with built-in visuals for all CPU variations. Here is the full first wave of 14 standard and low-voltage CPUs, according to the leaked image:

    Standard voltage 84W:Core i7-4770K, Core i7-4770, Core i5-4670K, Core i5-4670, Core i5-4570, and Core i5-4430.

    Low-voltage: 35W Core i7-4765T, Core i5-4570T; 45W Core i7-4770T, Core i5-4670T; 65W Core i7-4770S, Core i5-4670S, Core i5-4570S, Core i5-4430S.
