Intel fires up 45nm laptop chip assault

One if by land, 16 if by CES

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Intel has kicked an already down AMD by celebrating the arrival of 16 new chips across its laptop, PC and server lines.

The fresh chip dump marks the arrival of Intel's first laptop chips manufactured with a 45nm process that allows for faster, more energy efficient products. Intel CEO Paul Otellini emphasized the mobile strike at this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas where chip-filled gadgets are all the rage. Along with the laptop parts, Intel pushed out a number of new 45nm desktop and server processors that complement parts released in November.

On the laptop front, we find the following chips all with a 800MHz front side bus:

  • Core 2 Extreme X9000 at 2.8GHz with 6MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Duo T9500 at 2.6GHz with 6MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Duo T9300 at 2.5GHz with 6MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Duo T8300 at 2.4GHz with 3MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Duo T8100 at 2.1GHz with 3MB of L2 cache

With the desktop chips, customers will see the following with a 1333MHz front side bus:

  • Core 2 Quad Q9550 at 2.83GHz with 12MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Quad Q9450 at 2.66GHz with 12MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Quad Q9300 at 2.50GHz with 6MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Duo E8500 at 3.16GHz with 6MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Duo E8400 at 3GHz with 6MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Duo E8200 at 2.66GHz with 6MB of L2 cache
  • Core 2 Duo E8190 at 2.66GHz with 6MB of L2 cache

And closing things out on the server side, we find four chips with a 1333MHz front side bus:

  • Quad-core Xeon X3360 at 2.83GHz with 12MB of L2 cache
  • Quad-core Xeon X3350 at 2.66GHz with 12MB of L2 cache
  • Quad-core Xeon X3320 at 2.5GHz with 6MB of L2 cache
  • Dual-core Xeon E3110 at 3GHz with 6MB of L2 cache

Intel loves to perform these types of shock and awe processor displays and loves the grand showings even more when AMD is facing tough times. The folks at AMD - struggling to find four-core parts - no doubt appreciate Intel's enthusiasm. ®
