After the first day of IDF 2010 keynotes the big discussion of the day is around Intel's latest microprocessor architecture code named 'Sandy Bridge.' Intel revealed more details about this new architecture today and highlighted the increased emphasis on performance in both primary CPU as well as performance around integrated graphics.
The primary performance boost of Sandy Bridge is due to its 4 cores which will be able to process 8 threads simultaneously as well as a new feature named Turbo 2.0. In essence Turbo 2.0 is an intelligent automatic over-clocking feature which can automatically boost the core CPU performance for a short amount of time in order handle complex tasks. This feature manages the time the boost is applied to the CPU in order to make sure it does not overheat.
