ASUS notebooks with Sandy Bridge chips surface

12/28, 1:15pm

Four ASUS notebooks with Sandy Bridge chips out

A few new ASUS notebooks with Intel's Sandy Bridge processors have shown up on the web, thank to a pair of NotebookItalia reports. First off is the 17.3-inch G73SW, with a quad-core, 2GHz Intel Core i7-2630QM chip on the Sandy Bridge architecture. Alongside it is the smaller, 15.6-inch G53SW, equipped with the same processor and many of the same specs.


Intel reducing 2011 Core discounts to help clear Windows PCs

12/13, 9:45am

Intel said keeping 2011 Core costly to clear PCs

Intel has tried to keep the price high on the Huron River platform driving its Sandy Bridge processors to clear out excess stock, notebook makers claimed on Monday. Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP and likely other Windows PC builders have all reportedly been forced to keep using the older Core processor platform, Calpella, as their main platform until at least February as the computers haven't been selling as well as Intel hoped. An inventory backlog still exists, and sellers have claimed that they're "not performing as strongly as expected," Digitimes heard.


Intel Sandy Bridge to ship with low-power Core i5, i7 models

Intel to intro Sandy Bridge with five LV chips

Intel's Sandy Bridge notebook processors will include five low-power processors for ultraportables, a roadmap slip has uncovered today. The range would start with three low-voltage Core i7 chips, the 2610LM, 2620LM and 2640LM. Two ultra-low voltage chips are set to make their start, Digitimes said, including the Core i5 2530UM and Core i7 2630UM.

Intel Chief River to run 22nm mobile, get USB 3

Intel has given notebook manufacturers the first details of its next notebook platform after Huron River, mainboard developers claimed on Monday. Chief River would support the 22 nanometer processors based on Intel's future Ivy Bridge architecture and would have native USB 3.0 support. Digitimes was told the design would enter mass production in September 2011, although it wouldn't ship until January 2012, likely arriving at CES.


Intel may add USB 3.0 to chipsets next week

Intel Cougar Point to get USB 3.0 support

Taiwan's Commercial Times today claimed that Intel will launch its first native USB 3.0 chipset at next week's Intel Developer Forum. Its Cougar Point chipset for desktops using Sandy Bridge processors will get the faster bus speeds and should help accelerate the adoption of the newer standard in computers. When it would ship wasn't mentioned, but Intel has already promised a late 2010 launch and is informally expected to ship in November.


Intel Sugar Bay desktop platform may launch at CES 2011

07/29, 7:50am

Intel to make Sugar Bay available early January

Intel's platform for its Sandy Bridge desktop processors, Sugar Bay, should launch right at the start of the new year if sources are accurate. The design would combine the new, quad-core, 32 nanometer processors with Intel's upcoming P67 chipset and would ship during the CES show starting January 6. Budget dual-core and higher end unlocked processors would ship later.


Intel speeding up Sandy Bridge launch due to demand

07/14, 9:50am

Intel says new 32nm architecture coming early

Intel chief Paul Otellini revealed during the company's fiscal results call that its new Sandy Bridge architecture would arrive early. Owing to the "very strong reception" of the 32 nanometer processor design, Intel will speed up the production scaling at its factories to meet demand. The CEO expected chips to arrive late this year, though whether the initial release had been moved up wasn't said during the call.


First Intel Sandy Bridge processor specs slip out

07/13, 8:40am

Intel Sandy Bridge to start above 32nm

Early details have emerged today for the first processors to use Intel's new Sandy Bridge platform. The 32 nanometer desktop processors known so far will all start at 3.1GHz or higher and scale up depending on the model. Intel reportedly plans to keep the Core i3, i5 and i7 naming schemes and to use both the number of actual cores and the presence of Hyperthreading to dictate performance and price.


Intel confirms next-gen Sandy Bridge for fall

04/13, 2:25pm

Intel Sandy Bridge due Q4 with AVX, new graphics

Intel at its lead-in keynote for its Developer Forum provided more public information about Sandy Bridge, its next-generation chip architecture. Confirming many of the early details, it said the new design will mostly center around Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX). The extra code should speed up floating point math and should especially help for media rendering and other math-heavy tasks.


Intel's Huron River notebook platform due early 2011

02/12, 7:55am

Huron River to replace Calpella next year

Early details have surfaced of the timetable and features of Intel's replacement for Calpella, the chipset that drives mobile Core i3, i5 and i7 processors. Already known under its Huron River codename, the new platform is now expected in early 2011. It will still be built on a 32 nanometer process but will recognize processors built on the Sandy Bridge architecture, which should have both much faster integrated graphics, support for 1,600MHz DDR3 memory and unspecified higher clock speeds.
