Sandy Bridge in Q4 2010

Intel has scheduled the release of its 32nm Sandy Bridge processors for the fourth quarter of 2010, according to DigiTimes. The architecture will succeed Nehalem and its condensed 32nm version, Westmere, the latter of which is set to be released in the fourth quarter of 2009. Sandy Bridge supports 4GHz clock speeds, with scalable CPUs using up to eight cores. The architecture also houses CPUs and GPUs on one die, unlike the two-die approach taken with Nehalem.

Sandy Bridge is similar in some respects to the six-core Gulftown processor, the price of which is expected to reach up to $1,500 for thousand-unit tray orders. Intel is meanwhile expected to continue shipping Nehalem-based CPUs alongside Westmere ones, indicating that the company does not intend to launch quad-core Westmeres for desktops or notebooks.
