Intel Officially Unleashes Its Second Gen Core CPUs on the World
Way back at the Intel Developers Forum 2009, Intel Corp. was talking about Sandy Bridge, the code-named architecture successor to Nehalem. Nehalem had already seen a die shrink from 45 nm to 32 nm; shrunken Nehalem chips (which featured lower power usage and a few other tweaks) were known as Westmere. Sandy Bridge, like Westmere is produced at the 32 nm node.
On Monday, Intel kicked off what should be a week of exciting announcements from various players in the electronics industry by finally revealing Sandy Bridge in all its glory.CPU, Intel, Sandy Bridge
