Ooh, what's this? A couple of desktops rocking Intel's latest and greatest, available for purchase perhaps a few days too early? Matthew T. spotted these machines at a Vancouver Future Shop, advertising Core i7 2600 and Core i5 2300 processors, which fall squarely in the Intel Core 2011
(née Sandy Bridge
) family. Both come from Gateway and both offer all that core 2011 has to offer
, which in the case of these desktops isn't too much since neither has a Blu-ray drive to take advantage of the new 3D HDMI 1.4 support and neither has much use for WiDi
2.0 wireless displays. But, don't let that stop you from being the first on your block to Core it up 2011 style.
[Thanks, Matthew T.]
