Intel to launch 32nm Geisher architecture in 2010

At an analyst meeting Intel shared some of its plans for the future.

This year we'll see the launch of the new 65nm Intel Core microarchitecture. In 2007 we can expect a 45nm shrink/derivative called Penryn and somewhere in 2008 Intel plans to release a new processor architecture called Nehalem.

About a year later we can expect the 32nm version of Nehalem, codenamed Nehalem-C and by 2010 we can expect the launch of the 32nm Gesher processor architecture.

According to Intel there are 5 principles:
  • One micro-architecture for all high volume market segments.
  • Optimized for performance/Watt.
  • Parallel design teams.
  • No waiting on new process technology.
  • Chipset cadence offset for fast ramp.
