A much more powerful graphics engine than previous Intel micro architectures.
Fast access by cores and graphics to shared data in the last-level cache.
Manufactured entirely on Intel 32nm process technology, delivering yet another leap in performance.
Smart Multitasking allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time.
All cores plus graphics are integrated on a single chip.

All Pages Page 1 of 15Intel started 2011 off with the official introduction to their highly anticipated Sandy Bridge processors. We had the chance to take a look at their mid-range i5-2500k and we loved it. The i5-2500k isn’t perfect for everyone,...
A brand-new core design enables the chips to do more at a given clock speed than their predecessors. The humble Core i3-2120 runs at a slightly slower 3.3GHz frequency than the mid-range i5-660 from Intel's older 1156 platform, but it achieved higher...
Despite the lack of Turbo Boost, the i3-2100 was able to hold its own in many of our benchmarks, giving CPUs such as the LGA1366 Core i7-950 and quad-core Core i5-2400 something to think about. Most inspiring of all was its speed in games and image...
