Sandy Bridge Laptops Start to Show Their Faces

Though Intel only confirmed its Consumer Electronics Show debut very recently, the company's Sandy Bridge processors have been a long time coming. And, with CES just a few months away, it's getting harder and harder for partners to keep a lid on products that utilize the next generation CPUs.

While poking around looking for more information on AMD's Mobility Radeon HD 6550M card, Laptoping.com has discovered several laptops that appear to boast the new Intel CPUs. The site uncovered an Acer Aspire 17.3-inch laptop, which has the Intel Core i7-2630QM quad-core processor alongisde the 6550M graphics. The same CPU was also found to be present in a Gateway machine, as well as in the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560P. Engadget also points to an HP gaming laptop, the dv7, which includes the 2GHz quad-core.

And you thought Santa couldn't come fast enough … Roll on January!

  • otacon72Bulldozer if it ever comes out doesn't have a chance against Sandy Bridge.


    Pretty bold statement considering we know very little about it.

  • Bulldozer = Desktop.

    AMD is taking a more power saving approach with Llano and I think Ontario. Both of which are CPU/IGPUs. Saves a lot more power, but we'll see if SB saves power like Llano and Ontario. Oh, those are out already in benches if ya didn't know.

    Correct if I'm wrong though, I don't really mind Laptop stuff.
