Intel confirms next-gen Sandy Bridge for fall

Intel logoIntel at its lead-in keynote for its Developer Forum provided more public information about Sandy Bridge, its next-generation chip architecture. Confirming many of the early details, it said the new design will mostly center around Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX). The extra code should speed up floating point math and should especially help for media rendering and other math-heavy tasks.

Systems with integrated graphics should also get a lift. The core should be significantly improved and will have its own general-purpose computing support.

The semiconductor firm's executive VP David Perlmutter also validated some scheduling expectations and said Sandy Bridge should start production in fall 2010. He didn't outline the specific platform strategy, but Intel has traditionally shipped high-end desktop platforms first followed by mainstream and notebook versions. The mobile platform, Huron River, isn't due until early 2011.
