    Okay, im just going to say it. What is Sandy Bridge? Please don't make fun of me if its something that anyone should know but what is it? I've seen a lot of people talking about it but I don't even know what it is.:confused:

    A simple Google search yields:

    Sandy Bridge (microarchitecture)

    If you search for answers to questions like this, especially since you apparently wondered about it before, not only will you find your answer faster and avoid immature chiding but you'll also have the satisfaction of being able to follow a conversation.

    It's a newer, faster chip.

    Why the hell did the name it Sandy Bridge anyway? Maybe some chick named Sandy? Perhaps Intel likes the Beach? Maybe they are really big Architect fans? Perhaps they are Bridging the gap from now to a Space Oddesy 3000?

    They're just code names given to the chips. See >>here<< for the long list and reasons for why they were named what they were.
