Intel prepping R0 revision of Core 2 Quad Q8200

Posted on Monday, January 26 2009 @ 10:46:06 CET by

TC Mag reports Intel will release a R0 revision of its Core 2 Quad Q8200 processor on February 23rd. Current chips have the M1 stepping, here's a look at what will be new in the R0 stepping:
The R0 Q8200 will feature a halide free package, new S-spec and MM numbers, a CPUID changed from 10677 to 1067A, Power State Indicator (PSI) support with Intel 4 series chipsets, plus three new low power states (Extended Stop Grant State, Deep Sleep State and Deeper Sleep State) and new instructions - XSAVE/XRSTOR. No word on the need for a BIOS update but it's likely that one will be required.
