Intel Dual Core News

Intel dual core chipset details disclosed
SOURCES FROM people close to Intel’s plans showed us details of what the firm intends to do with its Glenwood and Lakeport chipsets next year at Oliver’s Bar in Dublin earlier this week and at something like two o’clock in the morning.
Don’t forget, Intel’s Leixlip fabrication plant is based in Dublin too, and some Chipzilla folk are always up for the craic.

While Intel was preparing Her Majesty’s Press for its “right hand turn” later in the week, it has already been chatting to its customers about a number of elements in Glenwood and Lakeport, which will support the chip firm’s “Smithfield” SKUs.

Intel dual desktop core chips to be called x20, x30, x40
THE LONG AWAITED Intel roadmaps which specify details of its shift from the Pentium 4 to dual core processors have been shown to its OEM customers.
And it appears that when the first “Smithfield” core processors are launched in the third quarter of next year, they will be called the x20, the x30 and the x40. An x20 is a twin 1MB L2 cache processor supporting EM64T extensions and the “execute disable” bit.

Intel Dempsey ready for Blackford, Greencreek punch-up
INTEL IS pretty committed to dual core technology across all of its microprocessor range but it won’t be until 2006 that we’ll see the Dempsey chip and the Blackford Greencreek chipsets to support it.
And in 2006 we’ll also see the Paxville and Ylsa tech, with Intel hoping to provide Twin Castle compatibility in the third quarter of 2006 - these will use 65 nanometre technology. Tulsa is slated to come in the second half of 2006, a fair way away and certainly more than 24 hours.

Blackford/Greencreek support dual cores, better power management, better storage controllers and a dual independent bus. This is a way away.

Intel shows off dual core Pentium Ms
WE HAD A FEELING Anand Chandrasekher would have something interesting to tell us and sure enough he did.
The man running the mobile side of Intel said that a dual core chip, Yonah, using the Calistoga chipset, would be introduced in the relatively near future.

This will use 65 nanometre technology, include hyperthreading, and use VT. It will also use a new type of wireless tech nicknamed Golan, and enable a smaller form factor as well as next generation graphics.

Microsoft backs free dual core licences
SOFTWARE MEGALITH Microsoft said it will not charge its customers extra for using its software on hardware platforms with dual-core processors.
A report at CNet quotes the software giant as saying that “We don’t believe that charging for chip processor improvements is in the best interest of the industry”. This stance will certainly be welcomed by AMD and Intel, who both have dual-core products in the pipeline for the beginning of next year.

Well I think that proves that Dual core is coming. :stuck_out_tongue:
It’s also great that Microsoft won’t be charging us twice as much to use their operating systems. Unless of course their new OP costs twice as much as XP did. Who knows maybe Longhorn will be here by then as well.
