-- How does new intel cpu's generations will afect our pockets? There are rumors floating around that Intel's 32nm Sandy Bridge CPUs will unify the computing world this year. Anonymous sources are saying that Intel's spiffy new CPU / GPU / memory controller integrations will use two new sockets, LGA-1155 and LGA-2011; if true, you'll need to buy a new motherboard to match.
Basically, sandy bridge creates a faster bridge between your computer components. Specifically it allows for better integration or "ring architecture"
between your GPU (graphics processing unit), CPU (central processing unit)/Core,computer memory, and LLC (last level cache or L3 memory). Shared Data to the LLC between the GPU and CPU allows for quicker access to data. Like Intel AMD will also be releasing a new CPU codenamed "Bulldozer" in at the end of June, 2011 (probably around the 20th). This coincides with what AMD has said which was quarter 2 of 2011. So, we are expecting to see a great competitions between manufacturers.
In the meantime, there are some good cpu's on sale, the prices are very afforable and the request is high. Here are a few of best sold cpu's in 2010: Intel Core i7-950 Quad Core 3.06GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366, Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz Processor - 3.16GHz - 1333MHz FSB and Intel Pentium E6700 3.20 GHz Processor - Socket T LGA-775 Dual-core - 1066 MHz Bus Speed - 1 x Box Pack. One of AMD's most sold processor for the past year was AMD Opteron 6172 2.1GHz Socket G34.
