Intel Penryn processors probably clocked higher than 3GHz

Posted on Wednesday, November 29 2006 @ 15:38:48 CET by

Motherboard makers say processor wars will enter a new level with Intel dual-core processors operating at clockspeeds above 3GHz next year.

The first samples of Intel's 45nm Penryn are already finished and motherboard makers say Intel doesn't really need to hurry, as its 65nm processors are currently well adopted in the market:
AMD has yet to launch its 65nm processors, and the company will likely not start volume production at 45nm until mid-2008, market observers indicated. On the other hand, Intel has been utilizing 65nm technology since the second half of 2005, with its desktop processors currently all made at 65nm, the observers said.

The motherboard makers said Intel does not need to hurry, shifting all its CPU production to 45nm, as its 65nm chips are currently well adopted in the market. With Penryn planned to hit the market in the second half of next year, Intel is expected to bring its marketing strategy to correlation with roadmaps for the Merom CPU line and the Santa Rosa platform to make sure 45nm products have no negative impact on other product lines, the makers noted.
