Intel is scheduled to launch its quad core Yorkfield processors by Q3 2007.
What will Quad Core Yorkfield feature?
- Yorkfield is the successor to Core 2 Quad (code name kentsfield).
- Yorkfield will have one L2 cache shared directly by each pair of chips, enabling more efficient quad-core operation, with less FSB bandwidth.
- Yorkfield is expected to have 12MB L2 Cache.
- Will manufactured using 45nm technology.
- Yorkfield is expected to support 1333MHz FSB.
- Support for PCI Express 2.0 and DDR3 RAM clocking at 1333MHz.
- Yorkfield will debut on next-generation Bearlake chipset family.
Intel is pushing new technologies at a faster rate than people could afford to buy it. Going by Intel’s date Core 2 Quad (kentsfield) will debut in November 2006, then why release a kentsfield successor by Q3 2007? Will Kentsfield become outdated within a year? Development of new technologies is actually good news but it should not be done so fast. Now there are some changes to my upgrade plans, I actually planned to pick up Kentsfield by April 2007, now I will wait till Yorkfield is unveiled.
