According to the disclosure of the Taiwan motherboard industry, Intel has identified six core desktop processor to market, core, code-named Gulftown, 32-nanometer Hi-K manufacturing process and is compatible with existing LGA 1366 processor interface and the Intel X58 chipset motherboard, is expected to will be listed on the second quarter of 2010.
It is understood that, Intel's first six-core desktop will be the second-generation 32-nanometer Hi-K manufacturing process, Westmere microarchitecture core, code-named Gulftown will support Hyper-Threading, will support capacity of 6 Cores/12 Threads, initially listed Extreme will be targeting the most high-end models, the LGA 1366 processor interface, and is compatible with existing Intel X58 motherboard products, the highest TDP to maintain 130W, the core clock, Cache capacity and price not yet disclosed whether it will follow the Core i7 brand has yet to be ascertained .
In addition, Intel motherboard industry has revealed a new generation of mainstream processors Lynnfield-level specifications, the use of LGA 1156 interface, a total of three listed at the beginning of the pulse, including the 2.66GHz, 2.8GHz and 2.93GHz, built-in 8MB L3 Cache, 2.66GHz model will not support Hyper-Threading technology, the highest TDP to 95W.
It is worth noting that, Lynnfield processors support Intel Turbo Boost technology, and enhance the range of Bloomfield compared to more, 2.66GHz, 2.8GHz and 2.93GHz open the Intel Turbo Boost Technology, the maximum up to 3.2GHz, 3.46GHz and 3.6 GHz, so that will further enhance performance.
Intel desktop processor based on the latest planning, Lynnfield final name has not yet implemented, is it still using Core i5 variables, is expected to be in the third quarter of 2009 listed no price.
