Early this year, Intel released their new line of processors called the sandy bridge line or second generation i series. The new i3s, i5s, and i7s are 32 nm CPUs. This means that every silicon circuit in the processor is only 0.0000032 mm thick allowing for more circuits in the same space. Previously the smallest width was 45 nm so this improvement decreased chip size considerably which allowed more space for an integrated graphics chip. The quad core sandy bridge processors were being sold previously but now, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Sony are selling dual core sandy bridge laptops. Dual core chips are very good and are not as pricey as a quad core chip. These laptops will be able to provide quality performance on quality prices. We are looking forward to see how well these processors perform and if they meet the stranded of todays rapidly advancing technology.
