Intel Sandy Bridge Tech Primer

The first things to know about Sandy Bridge are that it's a chip built using Intel's high-speed 32-nm chip fabrication process, with initial variants expected to have four traditional CPU cores, an integrated graphics processor, cache, and a memory controller located together on the same piece of silicon. Intel essentially skipped building a quad-core processor at 32-nm, opting to accelerate the schedule for Sandy Bridge instead. We've long known most of the above, that Sandy Bridge would include integrated graphics and would require a new CPU socket and motherboards, and we've known that it would support Intel's AVX instructions for faster vector processing of media workloads and the like. The mystery has been pretty much everything else beyond those preliminaries... TechReport
