Intel not planning six-core Sandy Bridge

Posted on Tuesday, February 02 2010 @ 16:05:33 CET by

FUD Zilla claims Intel has no plans to release a six-core version of the upcoming 32nm Sandy Bridge architecture, the processors will only be available in dual-core and quad-core versions. According to the latest rumors, the first Sandy Bridge chips should be in retail stores by Q1 2011.
Sandy Bridge is supposed to be Intel's first monolithic graphics core, as graphics will be on the same die with the CPU. The sad part is that Intel will probably make the first Fusion before AMD.

Monolithic means that Intel should go for full integration of CPU, GPU and memory controller, and this all comes in a dual or quad-core. This is clearly the successor of Lynnfield, the quad 45nm Nehalem derivative, and 32nm Clarkdale / Arrandale dual-cores.
