The Register reports Intel will demonstrate its Sandy Bridge architecture at next week's IDF event in San Francisco.
At next week's Intel Developer Forum, Chipzilla will unveil its long-awaited Sandy Bridge microarchitecture — and the more we learn about it, the more it appears to share with AMD's oh-so-late Fusion effort.
After architecture-group headman David Perlmutter unveils the Intel's "next generation" microarchitecture in his Monday-morning keynote, a quartet of Sandy Bridge deep dives will provide IDF attendees with details of its architecture (quite possibly including a ring bus à la Intel's discontinued Larrabee effort), "processor innovations" including Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX), on-chip graphics including "new media and 3D features", and enhancements to the QPI system interconnect first introduced in the Xeon 5500 series.

Quad cores with built in GPU? check
USB 3.0? check
Nvidia 4xx graphics for the heavy lifting? check
I and a lot of other folks are signed up to BUY these things as soon as they hit the market. Nice job Intel and Nvidia. Nice indeed.
