Intel is planning to accelerate the roadmap for its next generation of multicore parts, codenamed Sandy Bridge.
Intel CEO Paul Otellini Paul Otellini said the company is getting ready to move quickly to its next-generation chip design, “Sandy Bridge.”. He said “Due to the very strong reception of Sandy Bridge, we have accelerated our 32-nanometer factory ramp and have raised our capex (capital expenditure) guidance to enable us to meet the anticipated demand,”.
Intel sent samples of Sandy Bridge parts to customers last quarter, giving them a chance to see what the chips can do. Apparently the reviews from customers were really good. We will see Sandy Bridge CPUs at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco this upcoming September.
