Intel is one of the most popular names among laptop and desktop users. It is hard to get anyone who don’t use this processor or don’t hear the name of it. Intel is the world’s largest semiconductor chip maker based on revenue.
Intel updates its chips on a regular basis and gives the latest product to its users. Thanks to their invention, we are getting faster and smarter technology in our hand. Next generation laptop chips are perhaps going to be another revolutionary chip made by Intel itself.
It is heard that next generation laptop chip will come with a dozen of new feathers that will help to improve the graphics performance and will be able to play Blu-ray 3D movies.
Chips based on the Sandy Bridge architecture will allow the users to play Blu-ray 3D movies on their laptop and at the same time preserve battery life. Users won’t have to buy a separate graphics processor to specifically view 3D content.
According to Knupffer, Sandy Bridge chips will go under production later this year. If the announcement of the company officials right then it will hit store shelves in the first half of next year.
On September 13-15, there will be an Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco to give more focus Sandy Bridge's graphics performance.
It is interesting to see that both CPU and graphics processor will be integrated on a single chip. However, what makes it different from the current generations of chips based on the Westmere architecture is that it has the CPU and graphics core on one piece of silicon, but as separate unites.
PC World reported:
The higher levels of integration will also help Intel cram in more transistors to improve graphics performance, Brookwood said. The Sandy Bridge CPUs and GPUs will be made using the 32-nanometer process, while with current chips, the CPU and GPU are made using the 32-nm process and the 45-nm process, respectively.
No doubt, it will make graphics performance easier and faster. Let’s see how this invention will change our life.
