FUD Zilla reports Intel's 32nm Sandy Bridge will enable new All in One PCs to have a 25 percent lower energy consumption than the Core i7.
Intel divides the market to few segments and one of the important ones is lifestyle desktop platform. The best of this platform, which unites the small form factor cases and all-in-one PCs, is powered by Core i7 and 5 series of chipsets. Intel tells its partners that these systems can operate at 88W TDP.
The plan is to replace them with Sandy Bridge CPUs and 6 series chipsets in 1H of 2011. The best part is that this platform should have Core i7 performance if not even higher at 70W TDP. This is some 25 percent better, which sounds like a quite big leap.
