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:

    I realize the 1080p is available in some markets, (not mine) but 900p should really be lowest res, or at least an option.

    I agree. I can comfortably use a 125DPI 900p screen even sitting on a desk with a detached keyboard between myself and the screen; but the jump to 140DPI that comes with a 15" 1080p screen is just too small to be comfortable.

    Can SB be overclocked (FSB type) or is it truly locked down as reported?

    What retail prices at launch will there be? (high end only or mid to low level?)

    Will the new supporting chipset/s support native USB3.0?

    With intels history of over promising and under achieving on the GPU side, will there be more resources to support the new Intel graphics like driver support?

    SB without "K" notation is barely overclockable, with only 3MHz head-room for FSB overclocking. I think this issue has long been certain.

    The new chipset has no native USB 3.0 Support.

    I don't think Intel will ever support USB 3.0, they wanna back their Light Peak technology, and theyre heavily invested in it. I think they're gonna offer it cheap to manufacturers and penalize them for using USB 3.0, like only intel knows how to do (think AMD)

    Is my current heatsink (for socket 1156) going to fit into new motherboards with socket 1155?
  • Catalina588 - Wednesday, January 5, 2011 - link

    Yes. They got that right.

    Can Intel confirm that Sandy Bridge chip used in Anand's preview had 12EU graphics?
  • nitrousoxide - Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - link

    How much will both CPU and GPU benefit from the newly introduced Ringbus? Do they compete for resources? Will this alleviate the lack of memory bandwidth for the GPU?
  • freezervv - Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - link

    (Seconded, questions on the change in bus)
