Sandy Bridge incorporates Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0 technology so that depending on how many CPU cores are being used at a given moment, Turbo Boost 2.0 can temporarily disable unused cores and aggressively overclock the active cores. This results in increased computing performance bursts when the user needs it, all while staying within the processors thermal design. For unlocked 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors, unlocked multipliers mean greater and more stable overclocks, without having to pay upwards of $1,000 for an Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition processor.
In addition to Sandy Bridge’s new Turbo Boost 2.0 technology Intel® has built in GPU and video transcoding engines on-die which share L3 cache reducing distance & improving speed. SLI scaling for NVIDIA’s dual GTX 580s also receives nearly twice the performance boost.
“The performance gained by Sandy Bridge, especially with respect to price, is unlike any new hardware innovation we’ve seen,” remarked Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “We’re now able to offer laptops and PCs with unprecedented power for less money than we ever have before.”
Digital Storm’s Intel® P67 chipset-based optimized desktops and laptops will be available for purchase at www.DigitalStormOnline.com on January 9, 2010.
