The Intel Developer Forum 2013 takes place between September 10th and September 12th at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California. The agenda includes keynotes, technical sessions and technology showcases. Intel is expected to unveil the Bay Trail-T platform at the IDF. According to new report from the infamous trade publication Digitimes, the chip maker will also be unveiling the high-end Ivy Bridge-E series processors at IDF 2013, this according to sources from “PC players.”
Asus, Lenovo and Acer are expected to showcase their Bay Trail-T based tablets at the event. As far as the high-end Ivy Bridge-E processors are concerned, sources say that they will not be locked to “satisfy” users’ overclocking needs. The Ivy Bridge-E based 6-core 3.6Ghz Core i7-4960X, 3.4GHz Core i7-4930K and quadcore 3.7GHz Core i7-4820K are rumored to be released. These three processors will reportedly adopt the LGA 2011 socket and will support the X79 chipset, PCI-Express Gen 3.0 and DDR3 memory. The sources cited in the report believe that these new processors might be priced as high as $999. Intel hasn’t said anything as yet regarding these new Ivy Bridge-E processors and its highly unlikely that any official information about pricing and availability will be provided prior to the Intel Developer Forum 2013.
