Posterior codename Sandy Bridge, the latest Intel processor architecture hidden based on 32 nm tech, in solidify terms, it is the successor of the products traded below the name Westmere CPUs, which were also rescued as 32nm chips. Apart from the extra cores Sandy Bridge commingled a graphics core and a PCI controller on a single chip, what the fresh processors give else explicates the next items.
Also, the beginning desegregated graphics correct their clock frequency of the present load dynamically, as with the former propagation of this characteristic is only the Core i5 and Core i7 processors are usable, the Core i3-series there of continue to be omitted.
In addition to the processor core and the graphics core of the HD 2000 and 3000 series processors combine the new addition to the memory controller and PCI Express hub in one chip moreover, now the entire generation with the SSE4 successor "AVX" deal that provides a greatly accelerated floating point calculation, and thus accelerated applications. Sometime the high-end examples just earmarked and each example is present to the AES-NI statement set, which accelerates hardware-established encoding with the AES standard also impregnable. Furthermore, the Intel Quick Sync Video Technology now complete hardware-based video conversion and acceleration, it now also H.264 and MPEG2 streams are supported finally, the use of Intel InTru 3D now playing 3D Blu-ray over HDMI 1.4.
The P67 chipset handles all processors that use the Socket 1155th Currently therefore only the 32-nm processors are supported by the code name Sandy Bridge, future but are also manufactured in 22nm process CPUs are named Ivy Bridge on the socket 1155 its place.
Unlike the H67 chipset supports the P67, the integrated graphics processor not, accordingly, no video output prevail on the board, remedy is to create the forthcoming Z68 chipset, which will combine the benefits of both mentioned chipsets thus, then, the use of the integrated graphics unit is possible without problems.
As observed over, permit the second edition of the Turbo Boost tech still more exact alterations of the CPU frequency to the present load situation, then the processor raised its frequency independently give the corresponding computing power is required by an application. Is the task finished, the clock rate is cut down instantaneously back to their idle evaluates to preserve power and to hold the heat as low as potential.
Shall complicate illustration, a Intel Core i7 2600K standard with a clock speed of 3.4 GHz, but its oftenness may raised thanks to Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology up to 3.8 Ghz, but not intact of the 4 cores are overclocked like, as not entire apps gain so soon from 4 cores. An app that is applied only single processor core of peculiarly impregnable, turbo boost 2.0 gives for the operation of the rest of the fresh cores is transplanted to the core utilized in the form of said clock increase.
Unfortunately, when buying a Sandy Bridge CPU is also a new mainboard is required since Intel introduced the new architecture and a new pedestal, this was baptized LGA 1155 and now has a pin less than the previous LGA 1556th Avoid confusion during installation fail, Intel has changed the notches of the new processor elements accordingly.
