Ivy Bridge

Definition - What does Ivy Bridge mean?

Ivy Bridge is a microprocessor architecture developed by Intel Corporation. It is the first processor architecture to implement 3-D or Tri-Gate transistors. Ivy Bridge was developed in 2011 as a successor to the Sandy Bridge microprocessor.

Techopedia explains Ivy Bridge

Ivy Bridge processors are designed to provide enhanced computing and graphical performance and are considerably smaller than their predecessors. Ivy Bridge’s prime feature is the integration of Tri-Gate transistors, which enable a better flow of electrons. This significantly improves performance.

Ivy Bridge processors are backward compatible and can be installed on motherboards designed for Sandy Bridge processors. They consume less power and efficiently use electric power to avoid energy waste. They can be integrated within devices ranging from handhelds to enterprise grade servers.
