LIT Show 2011 : Intel To Display Sandy Bridge E Chips

Intel will demonstrate a working system build with its "next generation enthusiast-focused platform" called Sandy Bridge E at the forthcoming London International Technology Show 2011.

What's more the components of the computer will be immersed in a casing, the Armari XCP, that contains a non-conductive liquid for better cooling.

The Sandy Bridge E is expected to be extremely overclockable and will come with official "performance overclocking" support thanks to the use of the Intel X79 Express chipset.

The cheapest of the three Sandy Bridge E CPUs - with a starting price of $294 - is expected to sport four cores and be clocked at 3.6GHz while the two remaining will contain six cores and run at 3.2GHz and 3.3GHz respectively.

The 22nm die shrink of Sandy Bridge, called Ivy Bridge, which was originally announced for the end of the year, will be pushed towards the end of Q1 2012, possibly because Intel has decided to slow down the pace and dedicate more resources to taking on ARM (rather than AMD).
