Penryn, Wolfdale and Yorkfield all 45 nanos delayed to Q1 08

Desktop Roadmap Q4'07 shipments for Q1'08 launch

LAST FRIDAY Intel started talking about its 45 nanometre marchitecture and today we found out that the company has had to delay it original plans. Instead of launching the first 45 nanometre in Q4 2007 it will have to delay these small transistors to Q1 2008.

In Q1 2008 Intel plans to ship two new 45 nanometre cores. Dual core is codenamed Wolfdale and this baby has 1333 MHZ FSB. It supports up to 6MB of cache memory and supports two cores and two threads. It also supports Intel VIIV, vPRO, Intel VT, Intel TXT, Speedstep, Intel 64 bit, execute disable bit. Luckily it works with a good old socket 775 but you most definitely need a new chipset. The CPU generation will be known as Wolfdale 45 nanometre.

That's not all, as Intel has a quad core as well. It is called Yorkfield and it will work at 1066 FSB. It supports a total of 12MB cache memory and has four cores/threads. This processor is the Yorkfield 45 nm generation. Intel still isn't talking about any clock speeds and it already officially confirmed that Yorkfield is nothing more than two Wolfdale dual cores stitched together. µ
