Intel Sandy Bridge roadmap leaks

Back in mid-July we learned that some of the Intel Sandy Bridge 32nm CPUs would be launching early due to a strong reception of the CPU design according to Intel. Other than a vague early launch date promise, Intel didn’t get any more specific on exactly when we would see the processors turn up.

Electronista reports that the roadmap for the Sandy Bridge CPUs has been leaked along with the roadmap for coming Intel SSDs. There are 19 Sandy Bridge CPUs coming for desktops and notebook computers that will ship in early 2011. A few details of those desktop processors include new 35W dual-core Core i3 CPUs and a new Core i7 good for 3.8GHz with Turbo Boost.

Other low power CPU models will also launch in the Core line. On the notebook processor front the upgrades including new dual-core CPUs running at 2.5GHz, 2.6GHz, and 2.7GHz. The SSD line for Intel will include new 34nm X25-E drives with up to 400GB of storage and X25-M SSDs with up to 600GB. A new SSD using the PCI Express slot will also debut called Soda Creek.
