Intel to debut new Core i3, i5 CPUs at CES 2010

It's no big secret that Intel is cooking up 32nm chips for new computers next year, but now the chip giant has announced formally that it'll be unveiling its new offering on January 7, 2010 at CES.

This means that at CES we'll be seeing a slew of new laptops and desktops using the latest Nehalem architecture with its integrated, on-chip graphics processor. While only time will tell how OEMs decide to package their systems with a discrete GPU, today we can marvel at what the chip looks like both on wafer and in package.

Arrandale mobile CPU:

    Im hearing good things about performance of these babys - around double the performance of previous generations etc

    And no Intel IGP's have nothing to do with Larrabee

    i'm kind of outta the "news" as far as this CPU goes, but what can it's on-board GPU be comparable to? for example: nvidia 9800GT? 8800? or is it not even meant to be that beefy of a GPU?

    HansVonOhainShiny! I thought that Larrabee project was dropped?


    It was... it's not Larrabee.

    I don't remember Intel saying it was permanently dropped.

    No, but "Delayed Indefinitely" might as well be the same thing as far as most of us are concerned.

    Think more like a nvidia 4200..... MAYBE a 6200.

    Think 2x an older Intel IGP. In other words, not terrible for an IGP, but miserable for any serious use.

    More likely it's performance is close to a GeForce 7300GT gDDR2 version.

    "On-chip" sounds miss leading. Usually people say a "chip" is a piece of silicon. The picture is obviously not one die. All they did is move the video card closer to the processor. Technically this is not on-chip graphics, its in package graphics.

    zipzoomflyhigh got it right, this is to AMD's Fusion what Intel's hyperthreading was to AMD's dual-core. All gimmick, no substance.

    Try closer Nvidia Geforce 4.
