CPUs galore

CES 2011 has come and gone and so many things were unveiled at the show that we could keep covering the things all month and then some. One of the more important announcements at the show was the new line of Intel processors that were launched. The new line is the 2011 Intel Core mobile processor family and the parts are designed for performance and to sip power.

The new parts include Core i3, i5, and i7 offerings that are all built on the 32nm process, the parts also offer the fist on CPU graphics processing in the industry and the parts have new features inside to boost performance.

The new features include Quick Sync Video tech for converting video to portable devices, Clear Video HD tech allows for better HD playback and web browsing, InTru 3D supports 3D stereoscopic Blu-rays in full 1080p. The parts also support lots more features with HD Graphics 3000 and the latest version of Intel Wireless Display.

The CPUs were formerly called Sandy Bridge. Intel also unveiled the 6 series chipsets to go along with the new processors bringing vPro tech, Active Management Technology. The chipset also has rapid storage technology to allow faster access to photos and other media with RAID 0/5/10 support. One of the cooler new features is Intel Rapid Recover Technology that sets a recovery point that can be used to recover the system if your drive fails. The full list of features on these processors and the new chipset runs pages and pages; you can see all the details here (PDF).
