    If he doesn't say anything, it's because he's keeping his word. Must maintain integrity. :)

    The Westmere 6-core 32nm process is releasing on March 16, if memory serves. The NDA could be lifting sooner than that though (if there is one)...

    6 x 3.33 GHz (12 threads) would be able to best 4 x 4.00 GHz quite easily...

    Apparently Thuban may release April 26th alongside the 890 chipset. It might be too early for a preview/review for that, so this is most likely for a new i7 or i9 chip.


    Even more likely it's the i9 then.

    AMD is not beating Intel anytime soon (sadly enough!) so I am gonna say 90% chance Core i9.

    And I forgot Turbo...

    6 x 3.466 GHz = 20.796
    4 x 4.000 GHz = 16.000

    29.975% faster if all cores are put to work.

    oh snap. that's alot earlier than i thought. if that's true then its pretty plausible to lift the NDA sooner to increase interest.

    No such thing, good Sir. Just press guessing. :)
     
  16. The Core i9 is not a new micro-architecture. It is simply a Six-core Ci7 on a 32nm die. Just as AMD's next move is a Six-core Phenom II on a 32nm die. I can't wait to hear new information about AMD's "bulldozer" chips. Which are supposed to be a brand new micro-architecture and platform.
