    Intel Corporation unveiled 16 products today, including the company's first 45nm processors for Intel Centrino Processor Technology based laptops. All of these new chips include the company's new transistor formula and 45nm manufacturing process that boost a PC's speed, reduces power requirements, saves on battery life, helps the environment and comes in smaller packages for more fashionable and compact computer designs. With the introduction of the new processors, Intel will be offering a total of 32 desktop, laptop and server processors based on these industry-leading innovations.

    The company also highlighted how it will take advantage of its transistor and manufacturing advances to spur a category of small form-factor, low-powered, high-performance devices that deliver broadband Internet access "in your pocket." The processors are up to 25 percent smaller than previous versions so computer makers can create sleek, new designs for consumers ranging from stylish all-in-one desktop PCs to smaller notebooks.

    Among the 16 new products, 12 are designed for new laptops and desktops products and four are for servers. All are now lead-free1 and, starting this year, halogen-free2, making the processors more eco-friendly.

    "The new products we're announcing today provide consumers and businesses with the benefit of sleeker and higher-performing laptops and more powerful and fashionable PCs that deliver for the most hard-core gamer, high-definition enthusiast and just about every other consumer demand," said Mooly Eden, vice president and general manager, mobile platforms group, Intel. "And later this year, Intel will begin delivering the mobile Internet with much smaller, lighter and powerful Internet-enabled devices that ultimately will fit right into your pocket."

    Intel Adds Mobile Processors to Line-up
    Intel is shipping five new mobile processors, enabling breakthrough performance and improved battery life, providing consumers with the ability to be more productive or just enjoy their digital entertainment while on the go. Helping to extend battery life is also a new Intel Core microarchitecture design feature for advanced power management state called Deep Power Down Technology that reduces the power of the processor when it's not running data or instructions to the laptop.

    The processors are the foundation for the company's popular Intel Centrino technology for laptops, and deliver improved content and video capabilities with HD DVD and Blu-Ray support with an optional third-party decoder. Centrino-based notebooks also come with the Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset and wireless networking including the optional support for 802.11n networks with Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N.

    Intel has also added new video and graphics capabilities with Intel HD Boost that includes Intel Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 (SSE4) for speeding up workloads including video encoding for high-definition and photo manipulation.

    Intel will also use this mobile technology foundation and energy-efficient performance to enable a variety of smaller, cooler and quieter, stylish desktop designs. These computers, including the increasingly popular "all-in-one" category, provide the performance to run a variety of digital media and the latest software simultaneously, as well as enhanced high-definition video and smoother playback using Intel Clear Video Technology.

    More Mobility on Tap: in Your Pocket; Wireless WiMAX
    Pushing the power of the full Internet "in your pocket," Intel's strategy for using low-power Intel Architecture platforms that drastically reduce CPU and chipset power, and package size continues to gain momentum. Intel plans to ship in the first half of this year its first-generation low-power platform chipset that will help deliver a range of ultra mobile and mobile Internet devices from a growing ecosystem of customers.

    Intel also continues to work closely with carriers around the world to deploy mobile WiMAX networks. These networks will help deliver true high-speed mobile Internet experiences to a variety of digital devices starting later this year.

    Mainstream Desktop PCs Get 45nm Performance and Efficiency Boost
    Building on its November 2007 introduction (the Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor QX9650), Intel announced three quad core and four dual core 45nm-based processors for mainstream desktop PCs arriving later this month and throughout the first quarter of the year.

    The new Intel Core 2 Quad and Intel Core 2 Duo processor offerings will speed the transition to Intel's newest processor line and multicore adoption, and are arriving at a time when digital and high-definition content, including photos, home videos, music, television shows and social networking, continues to grow exponentially.

    Consumers will realize more performance at a variety of PC purchase prices as these processors feature a range of clock speeds, large L2 caches, and also come equipped with Intel HD Boost (SSE4 instructions). These 45nm processors are also a requirement for computer-makers carrying the Intel Core 2 Processor with Viiv technology brand, making it easier for consumers to select a great entertainment PC with Intel's most innovative technologies.

    Dual core desktop processor-based PCs using these new processors begin shipping this month; quad core-based systems plan to arrive later this quarter.

    The company also introduced four Intel Xeon processors for servers and workstations; they are expected to ship this quarter.

    The Q9450 seems to be the best deal.

    I will decide, once I know their TDP.

    If there's a Quad <=65W, this will be it I guess.

    The price of the cheapest quad hasn't dropped :cry:. Thus I'm more interested in the E8200, E8400 and T8100. Now let's see some TDP ratings and overclocking tests :toast:

    E8400 might do 4GHz on my mobo : o As it has 9multi and 450MHz should be possible. I'd so like E8190 or E8200 to be 266HSB ones though, but 8 is not a bad multi either and these should overclock like mad.

    If not anything else price of current Core 2 Duos will drop. E6750 for 150$/125€ would be sweet :)

    damnit. i was hoping the q9550 would be around the $300 mark. these new lower multiplier/higher FSB chips don't seem like they would overclock very far. everything i've read says they hit a wall at 480mhz FSB. that would mean the q9450 with it's 8x multi might max out at around 3.85ghz. i want a 10x multi chip like my e6700. then you could see almost 5ghz.

    q9450 > 2.66ghz 1333QDR/333FSB 8x multi

    q9550 > 2.83ghz 1333QDR?333FSB 8.5x multi

    temps are supposed to be pretty decent. the vcore at stock on the new dual cores ~1.16v and the quads are ~1.24v from what i've seen.

    none. only the QX9650 an QX9770 will be able to run over a 8.5x multi.

    HOWEVER>>> the dual core lineup looks promising. the e8400 has a 9x and the e8500 has a 9.5x.

    the e8400 will go for around $190 and I THINK it will be the new e6600.

    I thought there was be a non-xtreme Q9650 coming out? $500-$600 bucks.
    So, with the 94's and 95's I'm going to need a motherboard that does 500+ fsb... wonderful.

    Beleive it or not, the Yorkfield TDP is 95W!! so, this is the same as the current Kentsfield Quads which to me is a little worrying, I dont think these are going to be the ovrclocking monsters we actually thought, you would expect a 45nm CPU to run cooler, but when you couple the fact that the 9550 has a multi of 8.5x and the 9450 only has a multi of 8x for many these chips will be FSB limited and on top of that the higher FSB's needed to acheive BIG overclocks complete with a 95W TDP will probably mean no HUGE overclocking headroom, certainly no remarkable speed improvement over Kentsfield G0's......I really really hope I am wrong as I want one of these!

    By way of example, those who go for the mid ranged Yorkfield of the 3 initially available, the 9450, to just get 4gig out of the chip they will need to acheive an FSB of 500mhz, OK so some of us can do that, many cannot. If you go for the cheapest of the 3, the 9300, you only get the 6MB L2 (as opposed to 12MB on the other 2) with a multi of 7.5x meaning just to acheive 4gig you need to acheive an FSB of 534:eek: and lets face it, plenty of Kentsfields can do 4gig, OK you get SSE4 and 4.1 with the yorkfields........am I missing something here :confused:
    Ohhhhh and I beleive the dual core wolfdale's are 65W TDP.

    i hope so. it would probably be a 9x multi though. you could see well into 4ghz on typical air/water cooling. the price sucks though.

    like i said... they don't seem to be chips worth upgrading to unless your upgrading from a old POS or dual core chip. sure they will be great but, the kentsfields will continue to hold their ground.

    according to them figures, a e8200 will be around £90 which makes it cheaper than e6750? i'll have one thanks
