Halfway to 65nm

September is an important month for Intel, as it marks the first month where there will be more 65nm than 90nm processor shipments.

Next week Intel will have shipped its 40 millionth 65nm chip, and it was quick to point out that the rest of the industry has yet to ship a single 65nm chip. Of its 40M 65nm chips, only about 5 million of them have been Core 2 based processors, really putting into perspective the vast number of Intel processors that are still NetBurst or Yonah based.

On the server side, Intel has shipped 1M Xeon 5100 series processors based on the new Woodcrest core. Once again if you look at the 40M number from above, it's barely a drop in the pool of shipments.

    Is Quad-core going to much faster than dual-core, like when core 2 duo came?

    Reply is appriciated. :-)

    I have reasons to belive that whatever will come after Gesher will be very different from what we have today. Gesher is translated to brigde in Hebrew. Therefore I have reason to belive that what ever Gesher will be, it will be a transition to a new technology.

    I know I repeated myself a few times.

    It used a Netburst and most likely a prescott core processor to operate WTF?

    The day, in a press conference, the day in which multi-code is mastered in software, that we see in a video game demo, a full fledged Torando tearing down a metropolis. Reply

    Good coverage so far: Lots of pics, informative text between them, and lots of new tech incoming from Intel! woot Reply

    Any news on Santa Rosa chipsets? I couldn't see them in the road map. Reply

    Intel and Microsoft have no idea when it comes to what people will buy and can afford.

    Ye, like in the picture we are all going to buy 3 and 4 of these flop devices for our cars. Without these devices being under $200, no one will take then serious.

    It seems like anytime someone bring up a portable, they have to use an expensive cpu in it. I can't see why you can't jsut echo a wifi'ed screen from another computer at home or in the car. A device the is a terminal, not a separate computer.

    "Years ago Micron talked about equipping a chipset with an on-die L3 cache to help improve performance, and it's looking like Intel will be doing just that"

    IBM has it since 2002 ... ;)

    BTW it was the main reason IMB did not jump on Opteron so eagerly. They have a chipset hugely hugely superior to Itel's Truland since 2003. Game over period.

    That snoop cache is the thing which brought SC Nocona Xeons on par with SC Opterons in 4P-8P scenarios!!!

    First Intel DC Smithfield _IS_ single-die, it is just glued together but single-die. The reason being MCM puts huge strain on FSB so they put an arbitter on a glued chip, to help achieve even mediocre 800FSB on their chipsets of the time.
