We've spent the majority of this morning talking about the architecture and the direction behind Intel's new microprocessor architecture, but now we've got some pictures of the chip.

Above you can see the 65nm Conroe chip, and below you can see it compared to the 65nm Pentium D:

    I seeing deja vu from the IDF of 2000...tejas and the 10GHz... Reply

    Well, Intel does have far too much resources to NOT come back and at the very least match AMD.

    Pentium M is proven to be quite excellent (note the qualifier that I'm using) and with more extensive modifications (such as those Intel has been doing to create Merom, Conroe, etc.) there's little reason why it ought not be a good performer.

    It'll be very interesting to see if SMT (aka Hyperthreading) will be implemented and implemented properly on these chips. An integrate memory controller would be even nicer.

    Imagine a chip combining multiplecores with unified caches on an integrated memory controller with SMT better implemented. It's not such an incredible thing really.

    I fully expect hyperthreading enabled on the "Extreme Edition" chips. Reply

    Or maybe I just cant tell without some frame of reference in the photograph. Anand, can you give us some approx. sizes? Thanks. Reply

    Sorry about that guys, I was uploading at 0.38k/s in the keynote hall. Now the connection is doing a lot better and thus you've got pics :)

    Take care,

    I was beginning to wonder if I was going to have to d/l some new olug-in to see them (the photos)!

    nice photographs. All the processors look the same. How am I going to tell them apart ? BTW I really like the nice red X logo on these new processors. supercool. Reply

    dasm! just the processor has more memory on it than my first computer. that's impressive Reply
