Unconfirmed rumors have started to surface of Intel releasing nineteen processors in 2011, based on the Sandy Bridge architecture. Of the new processors, 13 are said to be for the desktop market, with the remaining six being designed for laptops. As for frequencies, the new processors are said to range from 2.3GHZ to 3.8GHz in Turbo mode, but all still come with a TDP not exceeding 95W.
The majority of the new Sandy Bridge processors will be quad-core models, but out of the nineteen, seven will utilize a dual-core design. The highest-end model to be released is the Intel Core i7-2600k. This chip will be a quad-core processor with 8MB L3 Cache, a 95W TDP and be clocked at 3.8GHz in Turbo Mode. The other chips will have equally impressive specifications, which is indicated in road-map below.
None of these chips are confirmed, so take the information with a grain of salt. But, if Intel really does release nineteen processors to the market it 2011, it could be yet another great year for the chip making giant.
