Fastest Intel for 2008 is 3.2GHz quad core

Written by Fuad Abazovic

At least that is the current plan


Intel struggles
to keep its Thermal Design Power (TDP) to 130W and its 3.2GHz QX9770 will be just a bit off that magical number. The planned TDP for QX9770 quad core with 12MB cache and FSB 1600 is 136W, and this is already considered high.

According to the current Intel roadmap it doesn’t look like Intel plans to release anything faster than 3.2GHz for the remainder of the year. The next CPU after QX9770 is Bloomfield, a version of a Nehalem marchitecture with quad core and eight threads scheduled for Q4 2008 introduction.

This means that 3.2 GHZ, FSB 1600 Yorkfield might be the fastest Intel for almost three quarters. We are sure that with its 45 nanometer process Intel should be able to get a bit higher numer, as Fudzilla's Eliot managed to overclock this marchitecture with massive air cooling all the way up to 4.3GHz. At the same time, we are sure that he went over the TDP top.

Intel is known for changing its roadmap on a monthly basis, and if AMD gives them something to worry about we are sure that Intel has enough space for a 3.4GHz part. But at least for today, it is not in the official Intel plans.
