32nm intel cpu !

" Intel claims to be at “production readiness” with their 32nm next-gen chips, which could mean seeing mainstream processors out as early as the start of the new year."


lol is now the worst time to buy new i5 or i7 ????

More about 32nm intel
  1. and also, i've heard that the smallest silicone technology can go is 16nm. what will be next? 16nm should be out in no more than 2 years from now, at this tempo.
  2. http://www.nytimes.com/2001/03/27/science/27QUAN.html lets hope it works and shrinks to desktop size
  3. hehe :D nice. and it 2001 ha.

    no wonder if the Department of Defense already have something like this. Since all the computer technology that the public see is actually years old. The very first technology upgrades are financed and used by the military. Its how we got the computer in the first place.
  4. nothing moves technology forward like war
  5. so true
  6. 22nm is next in line, followed by 16nm. though, within the next 4 years, we may find a new medium to print the chips. graphene anyone?
  7. probably gpgpu (like cuda) will give few more years to the silicone.
  8. probably, but if graphene works as well as estimates are saying, then we could expect a standard cpu to outpace a high end gpu quite easily.
  9. how long do you consider some time? 40nm is still relatively new to the markets. i cant wait to see the next die shrink on gpu's though
  10. That article was great.I wonder what they've done by now. Well there is a rumour that Nvidia will wait for the die shrink to beat the HD5870x2.
  11. and until they get the die shrink, 5870 x2=extreme pwnage

    amds gotta make as much money as it can as fast as it can
  12. ^ Yeah they have to so that when the GTX300 comes out they can cut the price of the HD5870.

    Not if the roumers of a 1.7% yield are true...

    http://www.semiaccurate.com/2009/09/15/nvidia-gt300-yeilds-under-2/

    Take this for what its worth, but it would explain NVIDIA's silence...
  14. ^ But as some rumours say the GTX300 will be better than the HD5870:
    http://vr-zone.com/articles/-rumour-nvidia-gt300-to-be-faster-than-hd-5870/7671.html?doc=7671
  15. ^^ Thats essentially what I figured. Still, even though 1.7% yields are actually closer to 10%, its not good...
  16. as good as a gtx 294 x4 sounds i dont think i can afford a 2Kw powersupply, and i sont plan to convert my room into a sauna
  17. ^ They may bundle a power plant:

  18. that good news, looking forword to that.
  19. check this out, it can be overclocked to 6.0 Ghz !! with 6 cores and 12 mb L3 cache also with hyper threading technology, 6x2 =12
    6.4GT QPI

    good news, it can work with x58 mobos.
  20. yeh, thats gulftown
  21. And it will cost(rumour)$1000. :heink: Let's hope they don't put that price on the final product. :lol:

    Those max overclock results are useless. Do you see the volts on that?
  23. Nice! Now bring on the big boys! i9 any one? :D

    Agreed, altho some AMDfanbois love to toot the 7GHz P2 leakies on LN2 as amazing :D. However, 6.3GHz for a 6-core on LN2 is a world record.

    Much more interesting is the 4.7GHz the i9 Westmere ES got on air cooling. Shows Intel's 32nm is looking really good.
  25. I wonder how much of an impact will the I9 have on future games.
  26. wat would u prefer, i9 @5 ghz overvolted to insanity or

  27. I would like a 12 cores 24 threads.

    Heh, I'd like to see how that Magny-Cours oc's. And at 45nm, it's gotta be one gigantic MCM module - I'd guess close to 600mm^2.

    My guess is that by the time i9 ships, core volts & power will be down significantly. So 5GHz on air may be fairly common. But personally 4GHz would be fine for me - wouldn't want to chance frying a kilobuck CPU :).
  29. intel has been kicking ass the last couple of years, both amd and intel are taking cpu design quite seriously, both have awesome products. Give amd the edge though, i love ati graphics cards alwsys have.

    It will have not as big of an impact as going from Single core cpu's to dual cpu's.
  31. ^I wasn't expecting that big of an impact but i was wondering if the new DX11 games being optimised for multi-CPU-GPU would actually make you feel the difference between 4 cores/8 threads and 6 cores/12 threads
