Posted by at 10:58 pm on November 15, 2010

Intel tonight sent out an invitation confirming that it would launch its Sandy Bridge processors at its CES keynote on January 5. PC Client Group general manager Mooly Eden will show the chips, now badged “second generation Intel Core processors.” One of these will be the “world’s fastest processor,” the invite said.

Intel didn’t provide details, but the architecture will include optimizations, new AVX media instructions and focus heavily on a new integrated graphics core merged directly into the chip die. Pre-release benchmarks have put its performance higher than dedicated graphics for the first time and may help slow down competition from AMD and NVIDIA. OpenCL has been rumored too

Desktop chips will range from dual 2.5GHz Core i3s to quad 3.4GHz Core i7s. Low voltage editions have been leaked but may not necessarily arrive at the same time.
