Intel's next must-have upgrade: a look at Sandy Bridge

Intel's current generation of Westmere parts marks the end of one era and the start of another. On the one hand, Westmere kicks off the 32nm process node, which is more important than normal because it marks the point at which you can make an x86 system on a chip (SoC) for every segment, from embedded up to servers. But Westmere marks the end of the P6 era—the architecture that has powered Intel's most successful processors since its debut with the Pentium Pro makes its curtain call with Westmere. In its place is a brand-new architecture, which Intel has codenamed Sandy Bridge.

I hope that AMD can equal this advance by "Big Blue 2," surpassing it may be too much to ask. Sigh.

As old as P6 may be, let us please not forgot the Netburst debacle. I really hope Intel put some engineers in charge the change in architecture decision this time instead of marketing gimickeers.

But their gimmickeers may be AMD's best hope.
