Intel booth at CES

LAS VEGAS--At CES 2011, it seemed that just about every device across the show floor featured the ability to access rich media content. Tablets, smartphones, TVs, and other Internet-connected devices are increasingly being used to deliver movies and games and demanding graphics.

Many companies see Intel as the stepping stone to providing the next generation of hardware, with the release of the long-awaited Sandy Bridge processor.

Tablets

Inside the Intel booth, hundreds of people are crowded around to take a look at the newest wave of devices running on Intel's Sandy Bridge technology. The second-generation Core processors, built around a new 32nm microarchitecture, feature improvements in energy efficiency and in 3D and graphics performance. That should help manufacturers develop the hardware for playing high-end games at higher resolutions and streaming TV and movie content from the cloud.

Project Oasis

An Intel interactive technology known as Project Oasis, seen earlier this year at Intel's Research Day, uses a depth camera to interpret real-world objects, and create 3D representations of them without the need for special sensors or bar codes.

The idea is to create a "smart" space that doesn't require a lab or a setup of many sensors and can be translated to real-world applications.

With 1 millions PCs sold each day around the world, and more powerful devices making their way to the market each year, Sandy Bridge is positioned make Intel a force for the next generation growth of technology.

With Sandy Bridge forecast to be a third of Intel's sales in 2011, CES 2012 will surely have some tasty treats for consumers.
