After all the excitement generated by its latest financial results, Intel announced that it will accelerate the pace of production of its new processor architecture, currently known as "Sandy Bridge". With that, the first chips based on the company's latest manufacturing technology are expected to appear well ahead of expectations, helping it to withstand the huge demand for its products in the PC market.
For the new Sandy Bridge architecture, it is possible to wait for some optimizations and also for the use ofAdvanced Vector Extensions (AVX), which will be quite useful for tasks such as video coding and computational math applications. Although there are rumors that it will be possible to obtain processors with low power consumption and greater graphics power integrated into the same chip, the first members of this new line from Intel will not be very modest, with an operating frequency of 3.1 GHz or more.
More details on the Sandy Bridge architecture will be revealed in Intel's next development forum, which will take place in September.
