I received a response from Tech Support at Shuttle, he advised that they did test an Ivy Bridge processor on the XH61, but it wouldn’t post. So, they are waiting for Shuttle HQ to do the BIOS update and will let me know when it’s available.
I stand corrected, there are 2 Intel Ivy Bridge processors out now with 65W TDP.
The i7-3770S 3.1Ghz Quad core LGA1155 and an i5-3450S 2.8Ghz Quad core LGA1155.
I’m checking with Shuttle now to see if they will be providing support for Ivy Bridge on the XH61 model.
As soon as I hear back from them, I will let you know.
I noticed someone was searching for info on Intel Ivy Bridge for the Shuttle XH61 model, so I thought I would address that now.
The Ivy Bridge CPUs that Intel just released are 95W TDP, the XH61 model will only take 65W TDP, so as of right now there is no support for the Ivy Bridge on the XH61. I’m not sure if Intel will be releasing an Ivy Bridge CPU with a 65W TDP when the other Ivy Bridge CPUs come out later this year.
If anyone else has any information regarding this, please let us know.
I’m also keen to upgrade from my i32100 to ivy bridge i53450s. Please post if Shuttle get back to you. I’ve also sent them an email.
Welcome Tom – Yes I will post it as soon as I hear something. Good idea to email them also, maybe the more email requests they get, the quicker they’ll get it done.
