Intel reportedly will present Sandy Bridge CPU CCES in January 2011. Intel reportedly also would reap similar success from the previous generation chip.
According to sources from the makers of motherboards, processors Sandy Bridge will contribute 20 percent of Intel’s desktop line in the first quarter of 2011. Added by him, some motherboard makers are preparing motherboard compatible 6-series aimed at the consumer market.
The motherboard makers expect new products to contribute to robust gains in shipments in the first half of 2011.
Just like previous processors, this new chip promises quicker than their predecessors, but the bottom line is their floating point capabilities that will open doors to new opportunities.
Just to remind, Sandy Bridge will bring graphic components into the processor itself, so the cache to be shared with the core for better video performance.
Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) will speed up the tasks of media and uses 256-bit base designed to target for tasks such as editing media.
Meanwhile, 32-nanometer architecture Westmere processor will replace the current use Nehalem foundation. Sandy Bridge processor will be available initially with two and four cores, while the six and eight cores will follow thereafter. Clock speeds will range from 2.2 to 3.4 GHz and can be increased up to 3.8 GHz.
