Intel Sandy Bridge: USB 3.0, PCI Express 3.0 and Improved Battery Life

By Jamie Pert - Mar 1, 2010

Details regarding Intel’s future Sandy Bridge platform have recently been revealed on HardMac, from what we can see these chips will offer impressive performance along with equally impressive power consumption.

Sources believe that the Sandy Bridge 32nm chips will offer native support for USB 3.0, not only this but we can also expect support for PCI Express 3.0.

The power consumption of these chips is said to be greatly improved when compared to current platforms, it is said that a Sandy Bridge-based notebook could well allow playback of two Blu-ray films from a single charge.

Obviously at the moment it is early days for the platform, however when production begins in Q4 2010 we should be aware of more definite information.
