Intel Penryn Information Thread - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Thread Starter 
Penryn is still not without its mysteries; a primary concern for enthusiasts is motherboard and socket support. Penryn will launch on Socket 775 -- meaning existing motherboards can physically harbor the new CPU, but electrically might not. "Motherboard developers will have to make some minor changes to support [Penryn]. We can't guarantee that a person could just plug the chip into every motherboard on the market today." However, Smith also claimed the Penryn boot test that grabbed so many headlines last week occurred on unmodified hardware that included a notebook, several desktop motherboards and several server motherboards.

The lithography process for Penryn, dubbed P1266, is not just a shrink from 65nm to 45nm. Perhaps the most significant advance on P1266 is the use of high-k dielectrics and metal gate transistors. In a nutshell, the polysilicon gate used on transistors today is replaced with a metal layer and the silicon dioxide dielectric that sits between the substrate and the transistor is replaced by a high-k dielectric.

Intel's push for high-k dielectrics and metal gate transistors may be more significant than the node shrink. Intel's guidance documentation claims with the new high-k dielectric, metal gate transistors offer a 20% increase in current, which can translate to a 20% increase in performance. When the new transistor technologies run at the same current and frequencies as Core 2 Duo processors today, translates to a 5-fold reduction in source-drain leakage and a 10-fold reduction in dielectric leakage.

"The implementation of high-k and metal gate materials marks the biggest change in transistor technology since the introduction of polysilicongate MOS transistors in the late 1960s" claims Gordon Moore, Intel co-founder attributed with coining "Moore's Law."

Intel would not reveal the materials used in its metal gate technology, though Smith announced that the dielectric is hafnium based. Hafnium dioxide has been the leading candidate to replace silicon oxide inside academia for years. A different material is used for PMOS and NMOS gates.

Intel's lithography roadmap no longer ends at P1268, the 32nm node. Earlier today Intel revealed its 22nm node, dubbed 1270, slated for first production in 2011.

Smith closed our conversation with "In 2008, we'll have Nehalem."

The Penryn that ran on the BadAxe2 board had a hardware VRM modification.
Meaning that current P35 and even G35 chipsets will not have the appropriate VRM spec even though they will support a 45nm core.
Otherwise you will have to over-volt your Mobo to run the penryn.

Maybe edit the first post to clearly state that no Mobos are currently available confirmed to run the penryn.

So is there any release date for these things?

Not quite but hopefully soon think there is something else they have coming out along with it, and they have come out with some newer ZEON CPUs lately so who knows could be next year Q1? Hopefully not but with Intel they could do whatever they want and we will all be drooling at the mouth waiting till they do. Right?

y000 Riiiick. I got busy with some work and started buying stuff for my camera instead of my computer. =P Basically, lost interests in computer stuff til Tankguys sent me a G0 pre-order notice.

Thanks for the thread link! Penryn for sh000.
