CHIPMAKER Intel has not confirmed reports that it will release nineteen Sandy Bridge processors next year, but the evidence does look pretty compelling.
The French site macbidouille.com is 'certain' that the firm will release the processors early next year, and even added details such as the fact what nine will have 'four hearts' and four will have 'two hearts'. Here though, we suspect that something might have been lost in translation.
This rest seems to be pretty straightforward, and we are told that frequencies will range between 2.3GHz and 3.8GHz in Turbo mode, depending on the model. Thirteen models will be pitched at desktops and the remaining nine at laptops, and fortunately, given the quality of the translation, macbidouille has grabbed a copy of the roadmap.
The biggest beast is the Intel Core i7-2600k, which has four cores running at 3.4Ghz, 8MB L3 cache and a thermal power rating of 95W. This is one of thirteen desktop models, which split between nine quad-core and four dual-core models. Laptop models, of which there are six, have an equal three and three split.
We asked Chipzilla for confirmation of the details in the published roadmap, which is reproduced below, but it refused to comment. µ
