ASUS and Intel are putting together a webcast that they've invited me to attend. The topic of discussion? Sandy Bridge. The webcast will air after Intel's official announcement of Sandy Bridge at 9AM PST on January 5, 2011 at CES.

The discussion will be a conversation between myself, Gary Key (former AT Motherboard Editor, current ASUS Technical Marketing Manager), and Michael Lavacot, an Intel Consumer Field Application Engineer. 

If you have any questions you'd like to see me answer on air or that you'd like me to grill ASUS and Intel on, leave them in the comments to this post and I'll do my best to get them addressed.

Of course we will also have our full review of Sandy Bridge around the same time. 

Update: Intel posted some of the videos from this webcast on its YouTube channel. I tried to answer as many of the big questions you guys asked as I could in the video or in our Sandy Bridge review

I'll add links here for more videos as they get posted:

    It's ok man, I'm sure you'll do fine, I get afraid of cameras too.

    2. What does Gary Key look like on HD camera?

    More or less the same as he looks in person.

    I miss not only his articles but his introductory quotes from literature.

    When using a discreet GPU, how much power will the GPU portion of Sandy Bridge continue to use?

    And will there be switchable graphics implementations for desktops like there is for laptops?

    IMO there's a good reason for AMD, Intel and Nvidia to sit down and work out a common standard for graphics switching.

    Yes, I’m interested in this very much too. Basically, are there any limitations on Intel side that prevent NVidia from implementing Optimus on their desktop cards?
