Intel Initiates Mass Production of Sandy Bridge CPUs (LGA1155)
Intel Corp. started volume manufacturing of its next-generation code-named Sandy Bridge microprocessors in the third quarter. The company plans to start revenue shipments of its future chips in Q4 2010 and expects demand for the products to be very high thanks to substantially improved performance of integrated graphics core that allows system makers to drop low-end discrete components.
"[In the third quarter] we began volume production of Sandy Bridge and expect to ship revenue units in Q4 as we prepare for systems launch in the first quarter of 2011. Sandy Bridge represents the largest increase in computing performance in our history. This is a truly stunning product that we cannot wait to bring to market. Early demand from customers is much greater than we originally expected and we anticipate a very fast ramp," said Paul Otellini, chief executive officer of Intel, during the most recent conference call with financial analysts.The first Intel Sandy Bridge chips will feature two or four cores with Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading technology as well as integrated graphics processor that will actually be on the same die as the x86 cores, according to previous reports. There will be a lot of different models with 65W (dual-core, quad-core) or 95W (quad-core) thermal design power. The new processors will use LGA1155 form-factor and will only be compatible with platforms based on the Intel 6-series chipsets.
