Intel's Sandy Bridge Info, SSD Roadmap Leaked

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 78 comments

The next-generation Intel Core...core.

German site ComputerBase posted (and then later took down, but captured by Engadget) a few slides that could be confidential information from Intel presentations dealing with Sandy Bridge and next-generation SSDs.

Intel will be rolling in the 25nm flash in place of the current 34nm SSD offerings. This will be the basis for the Postville refresh for X25-M parts in 160GB, 300GB, and 600GB variants in Q4 this year.

In the enterprise space, Lyndonville will hit in the first quarter of 2011 in 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB sizes.

For CPUs, the naming scheme for the second-generation Core i processors will change slightly so that the Sandy Bridge-based products will be identified by the extra '0' digit at the end, e.g. Core i7-2600, Core i5-2520M.

Chinese site Expreview has made a chart of Sandy Bridge desktop CPUs based on its own sources.

    Great, another new socket......

    Intel- take a page out of AMD's book. Provide a reasonable upgrade path for customers who already dropped $250+ on an LGA 1366 board.

    They removed 1 pin so youd have to upgrade your system, what dicks.

    I am desperately waiting for AMD to put competition in the high end market.

    Those(6 cores) from what I see are all on 1366 not 1156(i sure hope that 1155 is a typo)

    2100T looks like perfect HTPC CPU with its low TDP, and hope the price of CPU+basic motherboard wont be too hight

    The 6-core CPU's will be in the higher end market segment like it is now, but i don't believe it will still be the 1366 socket.

    Also, 1155 isn't a typo. There's one less pin than than the 1156 socket.

    I might be missing something, but what distinguishes the 2600K and the 2500K from just the 2600 and 2500?

    Is that the unlocked multiplier?

    hm...maybe. That's a better guess that I am able to come up with.

    K = unlocked multiplier i think.

    its actually not a typo its 1365 and 1155 they are taking off one pin for both sockets and this is confirmed by my intel rep and a couple of buddies that work there when i worked there not sure why they did this but thats the case so be ready to shell out some money for new board and proc

    and yes K is an unlocked proc for the 1155 socket now in the 1365 socket it will be just like it is now no "K" version just the extreme version

    that's what i'm assuming, 3.4 base clock is pretty high, i imagine that'll hit 5 pretty easily with the unlocked multi, times 8 logical cores and that's 40ghz of processing power... yowsers

    i'm also a little shocked that all of these come with the graphics core, what kind of person is buying a 3.4ghz quad core, and not even buying a $50 graphics card that would blow the integrated graphics out of the water?

    HA, new sockets already? Damn and AMD is still working with AM2+ and AM3. Hell even bulldozer is said to be compatible with AM3. Intel just wants you to spend money on their chipsets by buying new motherboards. Glad I dont buy intel. Feel bad for you guys.

    Have they confirmed the new 1155 and 1365 WON'T work in the current 1156 and 1366? It's not like they got extra pins that the current mobos can't fit, but rather less pins!
