I think it's interesting how Intel is focusing on their integrated graphics solution. By the sound of it, these chips may not be much faster than the i5/i7 chips that they replace. The only area where they will excel is in graphics performance, which probably won't be that much better anyway....

It's funny because a CPU like the Q9650 is still a good performer and they are cranking on these new chips.

I predict that Sandy Bridge won't be a success until devs start cranking out code and utilizing the on-die GPU. Once they start doing that, it will stomp other CPU's into the ground. And they will develop code for it, because it's Intel, and they have a knack for getting the industry to do what they want hehe.

Of course I am only referring to the desktop scene. On the mobile scene, I am sure Sandy Bridge will be a huge success.

My two cents.
