Intel to Release 17 Processors This January 2010

After giving its socket LGA-1156 quad-core processors a flying start, Intel is poised to release not just a couple of more processors in Q1-2010, but as many as 17 new models on January 7 alone, reports suggest. Among these are chips based on the company's new 32 nm manufacturing technology, which gives the manufacturer headroom to up features and performance, while maintaining low thermal and energy footprints.

This is when the company completes its triad of new generation Core family processors, with the Core i3 series of entry-level thru lower-mainstream processors. This triad starts with Core i3 as an entry-point for "smart performance", with Core i5 in the middle delivering "smart performance with Turbo Boost Technology", and Core i7 at the top, delivering "the ultimate in smart performance".

The Core i3 processors will include socket LGA-1156 dual-core processors. The chip package of these processors will hold two dies: a 32 nm processor die, and a 45 nm iGPU core die. The embedded graphics of some of the processors, according to the company, will support Blu-ray playback, and will be capable of mainstream gaming. Some very early performance figures hint that the definition of mainstream gaming is a little subjective. To serve as a platform for these processors, Intel will also release the H55 Express and H57 Express core-logic, backed by a wave of motherboards from all major manufacturers.Source: cnet

sweet cant wait for some 32nm im still using my old Q6600 65nm and its still going. they are using the "smart performance" a little to much you cant say that about all of your products it takes away the meaning.

"smart performance" as in C1E as in any multiplier drop on today cores, Funny.

but well, if they really got something to show us it better clock way over 45nm.

Intel i5 661 multi is 25 and has an igp. With a base clock of 200 that = 5ghz :D

There will be one for now. And it will cost an arm, a leg, and your left testicle.

Nope core i7's and i5's and i3's can be configured to use very little power.

Surprised I haven't seen any info on TPU about the United States FTC suing Intel over anti-competitive practices. Of course even I'll admit it's old news by now for Intel to be sued.

Will these chips actually support HD video?

If one of these new 32nm allows me to run a passive s1156 mITX then I will be happy.

Could we expect a 4.5Ghz OC on air with those 32nm i7 quadcores?

Why do they need my testicle to construct an extra 210 pins on the back of the CPU?!

Initialised
These:


Plus these:


Plue the i3s:


and the Pentium 2.8GHz G9650 and whatever 32nm CPUs appear for the 1366 platform and it's shaping up to be a good year for Intel.
