The next generation is here.
It's almost CES time, which means that Intel is nearly ready to unleash the next generation of Core processors, codenamed Sandy Bridge.
Before things even kick off in Las Vegas, however, it seems that the Sandy Bridge products are already on the Asian markets. The latest sighting comes from Singapore, where HP is selling a dv6 laptop loaded with quad-core Core i7-2630QM.
The Core i7-2630QM carries a regular clock speed of 2 GHz, but Intel's beefed up Turbo Boost will bring that up to 2.8 GHz.
Here is a picture from the laptop courtesy of VR-Zone. Expect to see more Sandy Bridge-based laptops than you can keep track of next week.
