    Intel, the world's biggest computer chip manufacturer, is hoping to "revolutionise PCs" with its forthcoming chipset that will combine both the central processor and the graphics processor on a single chip.

    The new product, codenamed "Sandy Bridge" is designed to cut the time it takes to produce images on-screen as well as improve battery life and lower power consumption.

    Paul Otellini, Intel's chief executive, discussed Sandy Bridge at Intel's annual developer forum in San Francisco:

    "On one single chip, we've put in place all the critical capabilities for computing. This is a very important chip for Intel... Sandy Bridge will revolutionise PCs again".

    While Sandy Bridge is not designed to compete with enthusiast computers that feature a discrete graphics card, the chip is expected to target low-end desktop computers and laptops. The new chipset will be available to consumers some time in 2011.
