Intel to Ramp Up Sandy Bridge Aggressively on Desktop Market
Intel Corp.’s ongoing transition to 32nm manufacturing process and Nehalem/Westmere micro-architecture products can be called pretty aggressive as the company is offering its latest chips targeting different price ranges and performance levels. However, sources close to Intel claim that the transition to Sandy Bridge chips on the desktop market will be even more rapid
As is known, Intel intends to start revenue shipments of microprocessors based on the Sandy Bridge architecture in the fourth quarter of the year. In order to prepare for the launch, which is scheduled on the first quarter of 2011, the world’s largest chipmaker will ship hundreds of thousands desktop processors powered by the new micro-architecture, which will represent around 3% of all desktop chips the company plans to ship in Q4 2010.
Already in Q1 2011, Intel plans to rather substantially increase the share of its Sandy Bridge chips among desktop processors to around 12% - 13% (~6% - Core i7, ~5% - Core i5, ~2% - Core i3). In Q2 2011 the share of Sandy-Bridge-based processors will be even greater since Intel intends to release Pentium processors powered by the new micro-architecture for entry-level markets and they usually require high volumes.
