It's been quite a while since the introduction of the first Sandy Bridge mobile processors from Core i7 family in January of this year. Since then Intel launched Sandy Bridge CPUs from other families: Core i3s and i5s were introduced in February, the first mobile Celeron was available in March, and the first mobile Pentiums in June. Seeing that all mobile families already switched to the new micro-architecture, we can expect faster Sandy Bridge CPUs to launch in the second half of the year and in the 1st quarter 2012. One of the first families, that will be refreshed in the 4th quarter, is Core i7. There will be 4 new models for this family, Core i7-2640M, i7-2760QM, i7-2860QM, and i7-2960XM.
