Intel to unveil 17 new processors in January


Intel will unveil a host of new technology at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this January, including 17 processors.

The firm reportedly told journalists it would unveil 27 new components, including the new processors. Those will include the new lower-end Core i3 chips as well as the turbo boost Core i5 chips, which are for laptops and desktops.

The Core i3 and i5 are expected to be the first commercially released chips to use the 32nm architecture, codenamed Westmere, as Intel announced in September that production would kick off by the end of the year.
