Details about Intel's upcoming update to Conroe have been slowly leaking out to the public all week. The "Penryn" family of processors is set to succeed the Conroe family at the end of this year. Penryn will introduce SSE4 and take the Core 2 family of processors to 45nm. Digitimes is now reporting that their sources have told them that the first Intel 45nm processor will be a quad-core Core 2 Extreme, weighing in at $999. It will have a clock frequency of 3.33Ghz, 1333 FSB, and 12MB of L2 cache (3MB per core). In addition to the quad-core Core 2 Extreme processor, there will be two performance level quad-core processors adopting a 45nm process launched soon after, with both processors... Read more...
According to a telephone interview with John Antone, VP and GM of Intel’s Asia-Pacific division, Intel is providing samples of its Penryn workstation and server CPUs to various computer makers way before the planned launch date, which is Q4 of 2007. “‘We're now broadly sampling [Penryn] for all the various platforms.’” Penryn is the code name for Intel’s line of 45nm processors, which it hopes will keep up the hurt on AMD. Nonetheless, Penryn will be introduced after the long awaited launch of AMD's Barcelona workstation/server chip, which will probably begin shipping in August. Though AMD is hoping for Barcelona to save the day, Intel seems confident that the Penryn will extend its dominance... Read more...
Direct from Computex, we have some world exclusive pictures of a still unnamed pair of 45nm Penryn-based quad-core microprocessors from Intel. To combat AMD’s upcoming native, quad-core Barcelona CPU and its accompanying 4x4 platform (QuadFX), Intel is planning to introduce its own, dual-socket, dual quad-core CPU equipped enthusiast platform later this year. With this platform Intel will bring eight cores to the desktop enthusiast space along with a number of other sought after features.                    Although we only have preliminary information...

A little over a year ago at the Intel Developers forum in San Francisco, Intel allowed a small group of members of the technology press to run benchmarks on a pre-configured Conroe-based system, well before processors based on the Conroe core had begun to ship. This was a new strategy for Intel, but a welcomed one in our opinion as it gave enthusiasts a chance to glean some real information about an upcoming product well before it actually hit store shelves.  Intel continued to employ this strategy in the weeks leading up to the launch of the Kentsfield core. Once again, in a closed door session in a briefing room at IDF in California, Intel gave is the chance to run some... Read more...
Hello All. Intel has disclosed more details regarding their upcoming 45nm High-K Penryn and Nehalem processor cores. We've got the full scoop along with some pertinent slides and explanations of the new features and technology Intel has in store for us all over the next couple of years... "Roughly two years ago, Intel talked about their proposed "tick-tock" product strategy which entailed the shift to a new process technology followed by an enhanced or entirely new microarchitecture approximately every year. Today we have more details regarding 2007's "tick", the Penryn core, and next year's "tock", the Nehalem core which also all ushers... Read more...
Intel held a briefing today to further disclose and discuss details regarding their upcoming 45nm High-K Penryn and Nehalem processor cores.  Roughly two years ago, Intel talked about their proposed "tick-tock" product strategy which entailed the shift to a new process technology followed by an enhanced or entirely new microarchitecture approximately every year. Today we have more details regarding 2007's "tick", the Penryn core, and next year's "tock", the Nehalem core, which also ushers in significant changes to Intel's platform architecture as a whole. Intel Penryn Core Details Features and Enhancements A Range of Products - Six Penryn... Read more...
Our friends over at Lost Circuits have an article on-line this morning with their thoughts regarding Intel's upcoming 45nm Penryn core and 45nm high-k and metal gate fabrication process. "On January 26, 2007, Intel went public with the demonstration of their first processor core - code name Penryn - manufactured on a 45 nm dry lithography and running several operating systems at roughly over 2 GHz core speed. The manufacturing process - P1266 - has been working since January 2006 for the manufacture of the highest density SRAM cell array in the industry and is based on bringing back metal gates into the transistors while replacing the (SiO2) insulator with a precision-manufactured hafnium...

Good Morning All! Intel gave us some details on their next gen manufacturing process today and we thought we'd share them with you.  We also got a sneak peek at their next gen "Penryn" core processor.   Have a look and enjoy!  ... Read more...
Intel's impressive manufacturing process capabilities and fab resources are well known throughout the industry. In fact, most would argue that their manufacturing prowess has played a large part in the company's success. They've had many "firsts" over the years due to process advancements, the most recent of which was their successful cross-over from 90nm to 65nm mass production.  Due to that success Intel has already shipped millions of processors manufactured at 65nm. Today, Intel is announcing a breakthrough that will affect future products scheduled to be manufactured using the company's even more advanced 45nm process. A major issue... Read more...
We just got an interesting tid-bit of information from Intel we thought you'd be interested in. It looks like Intel already has working samples of their next generation 45nm desktop processor, code named Penryn, and it has booted multiple operating systems successfully... "We have working samples of the Penryn processors -- and in a short period of time have already booted 4 operating systems (Windows Vista, XP, Linux and Apple Mac OS-X). These are good indicators of how healthy our 45 nm manufacturing and future product designs are looking so far as we plan to begin manufacturing production in the second half of the year ramping to three (!) 300mm factories in 2008. Since late June, we have... Read more...
Intel's 45nm CPUs might get here sooner than later DailyTech reports: Sources inside Intel have confirmed the company recently received the taped-out 45nm Penryn processor. Reports from the ensuing champagne toast claim the first Penryn boot was capable of booting Windows. Even though the processor is labeled as "A0" silicon, or first revision, the successful boot is a huge milestone and bonus for Intel. Reports of operational first-run tape-outs are few and far in-between, especially in the CPU industry. Penryn, the 45nm optical-shrink of the Core architecture, was prepped for tape-out in late November, and returned to the Intel development team just a few weeks ago. The early... Read more...
