Nordic Hardware spotted the sample of the 32nm Intel Clarkdale processor that was shown off last week by an Xtreme Systems forum member is about 10 percent faster clock-for-clock in SuperPI 1M than a Core 2 processor.
Processor is still largely unknown to verification software Core Temp and CPU-Z. Using GPU-Z he confirms that there is an integrated graphics circuit using 32MB RAM, but that’s about it.
A benchmark in the form of SuperPi 1M has been posted and there Clarkdale completes it in just 18.125 seconds. That’s about 10% faster than current Core 2 processors at the same frequency.
