Phoronix: Intel Penryn & Nehalem Information
This afternoon the Intel camp is sharing some new public information in regards to Penryn and Nehalem. The Penryn family will support increased performance per given clock cycle, increased power frequencies, extended energy efficiency, a 45nm High-K metal gate process technology, and a range of processors against all target markets. The Intel 45nm High-k process will result in new features and an elevated level of performance while sticking with cost effective die sizes. These new processors will also introduce the SSE4 instruction set and deliver new levels of energy efficiency.
