Sandy Bridge is Intel's next CPU architecture. It will succeed the Core i3/i5/i7 architecture and is expected some time in 2011.

Some key features of the new bridge can be found in wiki stuff but one must be carefull to verify the credibiity of the source before going for it.
Intel Sandy Bridge (microarchitecture) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That will give you a fair running start but don't use it beyond the variants stage, as that is where all hell can break loose, as in SSD's.
People who jump first are usually bitten first. The set of standards which comprise the whole IEEE or ISO set are not close to completed.

No, and don't expect any solid info about that until the end of the year at least.
