Posted on Tuesday, Dec 19 2006 @ 00:15 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The 45nm Intel Bloomfield processor in 2008 will feature a 4GHz clockspeed and 8MB shared L2 cache.
It is a speed that Intel never get to hit with their previous generation of processors where the highest clock speed reach is 3.8GHz with their Pentium 4 570 & 670. Bloomfield will contain 8MB of shared L2 cache which is smaller overall in comparison to Yorkfield 2x6MB L2 cache. As we have previously reported, Bloomfield is Socket B based, quad core and is capable of 8 threads. It is still within the 130W thermal envelope.
