The Sandy Bridge CPU-and postponed to the first quarter of 2012

The launch of Intel's Sandy Bridge-E for desktop and workstation seems to have been postponed from fourth quarter 2011 to first quarter 2012. In return it is VR-Zone, adding that the announcement will probably come in early January just in time for the International CES. Sandy Bridge-E is the update of the architecture of high-end Intel CPU, thanks to which models will be introduced to 4 or 6-core, quad-channel memory controller for DDR3 and PCI-Express 3.0 capable of controlling up to 4 graphics cards .

To operate, these new CPUs require the LGA package 2011 and the new Intel x79. With the limitations of the 130W TDP and Intel's 32nm production process has not yet managed to put 8core (16Threads) in SNB-E LGA-2011 for desktops. The latter may be short-lived if IVB-2011-E LGA to 22nm will not be delayed.
