Intel's formal release of its Ivy Bridge platform promises to bring hundreds of new PC offerings to the market, the firm has claimed.
The company said that the processor release, which adds 14 models in the desktop and notebook space, would be powering some 570 different tower, desktop and notebook PC models in the coming months.
Kirk Skaugen, Intel vice president and general manager of PC clients, said that the 22nm Ivy Bridge ramp-up and rollout had been the company's fastest ever.
Many of the new chips, said Skaugen, will be deployed in a resurgent market for desktop computers. While some of the quad-core line will power the traditional gaming towers, the company also sees a growing demand for all-in-one systems.
Of the 570 planned designs for Ivy Bridge systems, 270 are for desktop systems and the company sees developed markets such as Japan looking to integrate multiple all-in-one systems throughout their homes.
With the move towards all-in-one systems, said Skaugen, comes new demands and expecations.
The Intel executive added that that home users have been making heavy use of such systems for tasks including social networking and communications, leading the company to focus on areas such as rapid startup.
"People want to get instant-on capability, they want to have their PC wake up and download their email and social networking," Skaugen said.
"They do not want to have to wait for that to download."
Though the rollout primarily focuses on how Ivy Bridge will be integrated into home and gaming systems, Skaugen promised additional updates for the enterprise space in the coming months.
Rollouts for the vPro line of business PCs are slated later in the summer, while the company confirmed that its Haswell architecture upgrade remained on track for debut in 2013.
