Intel Sandy Bridge Details Splashed All Over the Net

August 16, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran
Details of Intel’s entire upcoming Sandy Bridge desktop CPUs have turned up in the web, alongside some details of some of the mobile Sandy Bridge processors. It was back in July that we got the news that some of the Intel Sandy Bridge 32nm CPUs would be launching early, but we did not get an exact launch date.
Reports about the leak of Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors and SSD’s suggest that 19 desktop processors were to be shipped in early 2011. For the desktop, we have dual and quad-core models with and without Hyper-Threading on offer. It ranges from a very low-power 35W 2.5GHz dual Core i3 to a quad-core line that starts with a low-power 65W 2.5GHz Core i5 S and reaches up to a 3.4GHz Core i7 that scales 3.8GHz with Turbo Boost. There will also be other low power CPU models available. The notebook processor upgrades include Dual-core chips which will clock 2.5GHz, 2.6GHz, and 2.7GHz. The SSD line will include new 34nm X25-E drives with up to 400GB of storage and X25-M SSDs with up to 600GB, and a new SSD using the PCI Express slot called Soda Creek will also be unveiled.
But these rumors need not be correct. But Intel’s road maps are about as reliable as you can get without an official announcement. With these chips expected to drop later this year, everybody is eager to try out the company’s latest silicon.
