good article, Tim! interesting and informative
Ikra, R600 is coming out Q2 where as penryn is going to be H2 (Q3 or Q4).
Even though this looks mightily tempting I have waited long enough, I'll get the Q6600 after the price drops, and then if the penryn is that good I will sell my Q6600 afterwards (although I have to get it first lol)
Tim, good stuff, I actually understood (some of) it this time
Nice article, but one sentence at the bottom of page 2 has me stumped. Can someone explain what the bolded part means. To me, reducing something by 5 times makes it -4 times what it was (1 times - 5 times = -4 times), and that's plainly ridiculous...
Perhaps it could be changed to a percentage or a percentage reduction or something a little easier (for me at least ) to understand...
I haven't posted here in years and had to come back to comment on this. I keep getting ready to upgrade and speccing out a system, and every time, Intel goes and launches something brand new like this.
As far as mobile processors go, I'm less interested in seeing what they do with laptop designs. I'd love to see them integrate this tech into pocket devices. They could probably squeeze P3/P4 level performance into PDAs and smartphones.
With the technology of 45nm construction, do you think Intel now build a quad core processor that is one unit or will they just be lazy and do nothing about it
