Oh, it's been a long time coming.
CES has seen many big announcements in its time and is considered one of the consumer electronics shows in the world. It's also been the venue for many notable launches over the years, including Blu-ray, HDTV, the original Xbox, Tetris, the NES, and the DVD. This, coupled with the fact that we already knew Sandy Bridge was coming at the beginning of 2011, made CES a pretty likely place for Intel to launch Sandy Bridge, and the company this week confirmed its CES plans.
Intel's Mooly Eden (pictured) will be chairing the event, which will take place on January 5 in the Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas. CNet cites an Intel statement that promises Mooly and surprise guests will demo "the world's fastest processor with many new technologies Intel has built into its chips to enhance the 'visual life.'"
We'll at CES to bring you timely updates from all of the events and keynotes, so we'll be adding this to our calendars and will be there with bells on. Who's excited?
