Intel expected to show off 32nm Core i9 in September

Posted on Tuesday, August 25 2009 @ 17:24:29 CEST by

Bright Side of News claims Intel is planning to demonstrate the 32nm Core i9 1000 processor at the Intel Developer Conference 2009 in San Francisco, which takes place on September 22-24.
Gulftown processor will use the LGA-1366 socket, already a home for the current Core i7-900 series of processors, so Gulftown will continue to feature 216-bit [64-bit +8-bit ECC per channel] triple channel DDR3 memory. But what makes Gulftown so special is not the fact that this processor does not belong to current Nehalem architecture – this is the first member of the Westmere architecture [the 32nm "tock" in Intel's Tick-Tock cadence]. Westmere processors come manufactured in the 32 nanometer process, and feature native dual, quad, sexa and octa-core designs.

Intel decided to name processors from Core i9 series with a 1000 suffix, a logical step from Core i5-700, i7-800, i7-900 and now - i9-1000 series. According to the sources in the know, 32nm has some trouble achieving good thermals for the planned Turbo architecture and dynamic clock scaling..
