New Intel Xeon 45nm Information Leaked
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Although Xeons are irrelevant for consumers, this new information does give us a bit of insight into Intels upcoming Penryn 45nm processors. This leak comes from DailyTech, and reveals individual model number, core frequency, thermal design power, FSB, and amount of L2 cache.
Heres what they had to say:
These 45nm Xeons, based on the Penryn generation of processors, also feature the 1333 MHz front-side bus found on the new Core 2 Duo stepping. Each die features 6MB of L2 cache -- giving the two dice quad-core Harpertown Xeons a total of 12MB of L2 cache.
I suspect Intel is being very liberal with the TDP of the X5460 processor, because a 160Mhz extra certainly does not cause a 50% increase in heat output. I really hope one of those 50W quad-core chips makes it to the consumer market, because it would be tremendous to have that amount of power in a small format, like an HTPC case.
