I’m currently here in San Francisco attending the Intel Developer forum for all you PC enthusiasts out there. We got a chance to speak about the Core i7 with Pat Gelsinger, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Digital Enterprise Group. In response to the i7 and Intel’s latest upkeeps, Gelsinger stated:
Our engineers have put together an incredible processing family here that will include a tremendous amount of new processor features all centered on delivering faster computer performance and terrific energy efficiency.
The company’s desktop PC chips branded Intel Core i7 processors and initial energy-efficient, high-performance server products (“Nehalem-EP”) are running towards lead to production. Intel is also planning to manufacture a second server derivative designed for the server marker (“Nehalem-EX”), and desktop (“Havendale” and “Lynnfield”) and mobile (“Auburndale” and “Clarksfield”) client versions around the second half of 2009.
Keep checking back as we will have more from IDF for all of you.
Intel has announced that they will be soon releasing the Q8000 series for all the Core 2 fans out there. Technically successor to the Q9550, the 8-series line of processors will unveil great speed, with a 1333MHz FSB capability for connection between PCI-AGP-CPU-and memory (NB to CPU) and also extremely great connection to Southbridge.
The Quad 8000 will go head on towards AMD’s triple-core CPU’s by launching at entry point. Good news for those who already burned money on power supplies. Now you’re probably wondering why it is a step down. Good question! Different from Intel’s Q9000 CPU line, the Q8000 series doesn’t support Intel’s VT. That’s Virtualization Technology (integrating multiple environments on one vPro capable system or the like).
