“CHIPMAKER Intel is keen to get its Sandy Bridge processors into the shops.
According to PC World, Sandy Bridge has been moved up and now will start rolling out of Chipzilla’s fabs by September.
If you believe Paul Otellini, Intel’s president and CEO, it has been years since he has been so excited by a new product line. Not even the ashtray he made in his executive pottery class got him this excited.”

You might think that after Intel brought in a total revenue of $10.8 billion and a net income of $2.9 billion, that they might take a break and relax for a bit. If so, you don’t know Intel very well as when they see a chance to capitalize on an opportunity, they do it. In this case we are seeing a bump in the arrival time for Sandy Bridge. The Inquirer does not have an exact timeline but know that we will certainly be seeing Sandy Bridge in action at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco this September. Even more exciting for some is that Intel is leading with the desktop and mobile versions, not server chips.
