Dadi Perlmutter (VP and GM of the Intel Architecture Group) detailed features for our upcoming 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processor family (Sandy Bridge) for laptops and PCs… Spolier: more energy efficient and a visually stunning experience.
The chips are expected to be in production later this year with new laptops and PCs available starting in early 2011.
These new improvements are achieved via a new “ring” architecture that allows the built-in processor graphics engine to share resources such as cache, or a memory reservoir, with the processor’s core to increase a device’s computing and graphics performance while maintaining energy efficiency.
Intel’s new processor graphics delivers enhanced visual features focused on the areas where most users are computing today: HD video, 3-D, mainstream gaming, multi-tasking and online socializing and multimedia.
