    Not long after Intel was said to have sent out samples of its new 32 nm mainstream processor based on Nehalem micro-architecture, someone over at XS forums, has posted photos of an as yet unnamed Clarkdale processor, running at 2.4 GHz, with 4 MB L3 Cache. The only official information from Intel we have about these processors is what we covered two months ago, when Intel spread open its plans to deal with the mainstream and value markets using its Nehalem micro-architecture.

    Thanks.

    i5 at 2.4GHz gets 18s in superpi 1M is approx 21 seconds.
    Percentage wise, that makes this CPU around 16% faster clock per clock, than a 65nm chip with the same core clock.

    "57c to TJmax" well assuming they're still around the 95C mark, that means the chips idling at 30-35C. Thats pretty snazzy, and definately colder than the 65nm chips.

    I dunno, it just doesnt seem fast enough to impress me yet... need OCing results :)

    Not Core i7!
    This is the mainstream Nehalem (Core i5) the little brother of Core i7 :)

    Looks pretty good. Waiting for some OC results and comparison to i7.

    you cant compare it to i7! 2 cores vs 4 cores:shadedshu what we need is some E8000 vs clarkdale:D

    Lets not get ahead of ourself!.


    Wait untill Halfbaked es 32 nm time is over ;) i guess july ;) thats when amd gonna have a compotition in the tricore market.

    Theese chips run HT meaning: 2 core with 2 logical = 4 threads, and each logical is "Up to" 27% of an core, meaning those would be almost neck to neck to PH II X3. this is where theese will compete, when we find out die size. and clock speed potential, might be a very unrefined 32 NM.


    But theese are going to be killers, just dont expect them before July, august, or maybe later.

    But anything can happen, well all i gotta say, where their market position might be, what kinda stage this chip have been made at.

    I used a PH1 1600 mhz which crashed opening paint. but it ran vista, 3dmark, wprime, superpi. but there was something about paint.....
    Thats an very very early ES.

    But we know very very little of 32 NM, and how a 2 core nahelem architecture would work. faster than PHII in dualcore or single thread, slower in multithread by my guess.

    This is like Havendale's second cousin and Westmere's brother. Neph is like Uncle Fester.

    From what i understand, it should host dual-channel DDR3, instead of triple channel, aswell as graphics, 4mb cache, PCI-E 2.0 @ x16. So im very interested to see what this thing is capable of.

    Im actually expecting to see a very noticable difference in gaming, should i not be expecting this ?

    For me I'm going to completely ignore i5 unless its for my little bro's pc or what not.

    My guess is they will perform something like a E7300, maybe up to around E8200 speeds, but with heaps better memory latency obviously.

    well to me the 32nm is all about cooler and more quite HTPC and if the die size is smaller then maybe cheaper prices. if i want performance im still going for i7...

    Well to me, those performance figures in dualcore operation is worth shit.

    The gain from a Core 2 is mainly the hyperthreading, and the fact you can run cheap ass memory kits, if they were made for DDR2, so unless the DDR3 prices drop, those wouldnt be price for performance!

    Unless you got DDR3 already, but i reccon you got a killer rig from before.

    Got Core 2 quad i wont see reasons to swap it out straight away, there is no denying this is the future!
    I expect from 2010 and out this will start to enter the mainstream market. :)
    So were basicly 8 months from this comming to the masses.
    I surely hope more applications get multithreading.

    But we all got gpu bottleneck for the most part at the time being, unless you encode stuff.

    if these are dual cores with hyperthreading I can smell a few F@H rigs being built with these

    When was the last time you looked at DDR3 prices
    DDR3 is not expensive
