“Last week we published our preview of Intel’s 2011 Core microarchitecture update, codenamed Sandy Bridge. In the preview we presented a conservative estimate of what shipping Sandy Bridge performance will look like in Q1 2011. I call it conservative because we were dealing with an early platform, with turbo disabled, compared to fairly well established competitors with their turbo modes enabled.”

Looking into the near future and what we know about Sandy Bridge and its integrated graphics AnandTech tries to determine what we will be seeing. We do know that there will be two types, the single core GT1 and the dual core GT2 with the GT1 parts having 6 execution units and the GT2 doubling that to 12. Though he cannot confirm the fact, the assumption is that the CPU tested was a GT1 part, leaving us to wonder what the performance of the GT2 will be, the chip that will be found in all Sandy Bridge laptops and some desktops.
