Intel It's the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, so it's time for new stuff to spend your hard-earned cash on. This time around, Intel is making headlines by officially launching its Sandy Bridge line of processors, which, up until now, were totally next-generation.

I think that even AMD will have something to suffer from it. AMD Bulldozer will have strong integer performance for threaded apps (almost unseen for now, excluding databases and virtualizations in my experience). Anyway, about integrated video card, is fairly enough good to not think on: "integrated intel graphics", even is not the "Crysis" CPU/GPU, is for certain the Win7 CPU. If you play any game that IE9/FF4/Flash will give, go video decoding, and so on, I think Intel still will be a winner. The last scarry thing, is that AMD with their quad double core module (aka 8 cores) will likely have lower frequencies per core, so they will be as Phenom was some years ago: a lot of cores, but bad performance in small threaded workloads. So for me Intel did at least halfly his job by byting lower end graphics, right now AMD hopefully will find the next marketing term of their CPUs to prevail.
