The Intel word of the day is....

Colourful and quad-core
Fri Apr 28 2006, 08:27
TODAY'S WORD OF of the day is brought to you by the name 'Intel', the number 'four', and the colour 'off-eggplant with hints of salmon, but not too southwestern, more a burnt sienna'.

The word is Bloomsfield, and it is the quad-core that follows Kentsfield. This one will be a converged, aka real, quad-core product, not the two chips on a chip of Kentsfield.

It will likely be built on a 45nm process, and with a faster bus, mainly due to it being one chip, not two. This should address all the weaknesses of Kentsfield, and make it one heck of a good chip. µ
