Intel has introduced its “Sandy Bridge” second-generation Core 2011 family processors. The new Core i3, i5, and i7 processors replaces the first generation models and will make their way into the computers coming out this year. Interesting thing about the second generation Core family processors is that they are built using 32nm fabrication process and includes processor, graphics and memory controller all on a single die. These unique advantages further boost performance, reduce power consumption for better battery life and smaller designs, and lower overall manufacturing costs.


The new chips offer powerful performance including support for full HD 1080p video and a new video technology that converts a 4 minute HD video to play on an iPod in only 16 seconds or securely download HD movies for viewing on local screen or beaming from laptop to HDTV.
All of them also includes new features such as Intel Quick Sync Video, Intel HD Graphics, Intel Wireless Display 2.0, and Intel Insider.
The Core i3, i5 and i7 processors also include the enhanced Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. This feature automatically reallocates processor core and processor graphics resources to accelerate performance, giving users an immediate performance boost when and where it’s needed.
Intel reports that more than 500 laptop and desktop PC platform designs are expected from all major computer makers worldwide based on these products.
