This is actually... disappointing. Thought they'd get a better boost from 32nm.
agnickolovNow just waiting for Core i7 9xx series refresh to 32nm...
Same. I thought the i7 930 would be 32nm, but it's just 2.8GHz instead of 2.66GHz on 45nm.
So, our 45nm process has gotten better, even after it's matured for hell knows how long, but no luck on the 32nm still?
Also, imagine a C2D on the now more mature 45nm, or the relatively fresh 32nm. Those could probably reach some sick speeds (granted, they've been replaced by the LGA 1156 dual cores).
I know AMD processors typically undervolt very generously, how about these 32nm babies?
DjEaZy... WTF!!! Do intel think, that IT server specialists are stupid? This iz a fairytale like presentation for kids... do real life benchmarks, demos and such sort of stuff!!!
agreed, that's what I was thinking all along: where is the thing that will make me buy this? Those few words that take 30 seconds or less to read? It was fun watching the guy anyway. Not going to do that thing often though.
BurodsxI can't wait to start seeing the 32nm quad-cores! I'm still running on a 65nm chip so it's about high time to upgrade.
I went from a 95nm dual core to 45nm quad core. =D
I think 65nm to 32nm is a good transition. Why bother upgrading every new fab?
Though I may upgrade my fathers laptop which has a 2GHz 65nm T5800 for a 2.8GHz 45nm P9700, which actually has a lower TDP (I considered the upgrade because of how hto it can get).
