Intel's 'Sandy Bridge' 32nm CPU out in Q4 2010

Tick follows tock follows tick

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Intel's first next-gen microarchitecture microprocessor will arrive in Q4 2010, Taiwanese moles have claimed.

Whether they have it from the horse's mouth or are simple extrapolating from the chip giant's process introductions over the past few years isn't something stated by the DigiTimes piece in which they PC maker sources are quoted.

Intel introduced the first 45nm chips based on its Nehalem architecture in Q4 2008, and its roadmaps show it releasing the first 32nm Nehalem die-shrink CPUs in Q4 2009. Given Intel's keenness on its "tick-tock" regular-as-clockwork roll-out schedule, you're not likely to be way off the mark if you predict that Q4 2010 will see the release of 'Sandy Bridge', Intel's architecture designed specifically for 32nm production. ®
