[Fud]Intel six core 32nm comes after Q1 2010

Bloomfield Corei7 to last till then


According to Intel's latest plans the Nehalem iteration called Bloomfield should last at least until the end of Q1 2010. We are talking roughly one year from today and we are still not sure that even then Intel will rush to replace quad-core CPUs with six core CPUs.

The main issue will be the performance gain, as we believe that clock to clock Nehalem and Westmere based CPU would have a significant performance difference. Westmere will have a few new instructions and innovations over Nehalem / Bloomfield, but unless it runs at much higher clock, it won't make much of a difference in performance.

Computer games and most applications today, including your browser, simply won't benefit from six cores. In the server world you already have six core Core 2 based CPUs and there will be a Nehalem based upgrade this year, with more than four cores.

The more the better, someday Game Developers are gonna have to use 4+ Cores in games and the 6 core Westmere sound like a beast in Video Encoding.

Why not just jump to 8? Six core seems kinda odd to me. I would totally buy a 6 or 8 core.

bring the sandy bridge ! westmere just 6+core nothing interesting
post #5 of 9
I'm gonna be awfully happy if Sandy Bridge uses LGA1366. Until then I am 'futureproof' with my CPU.

I agree they should just skip six cores all together and go straight to 8 core. We should be doubling the cycle 1 to 2 to 4 makes sense to me.

Hm... I may decide to jump platforms at around Q1 2010. I have been craving a quad for a long time but can't yet justify the purchase.... would be pretty sweet to go six cores instead!

I for one think that intels currents 45nm i7 are fantastic but in hardly any time at all 32nm is where it will be at.

Why 6 cores? 6 can't be represented by 2^n.

doesn't this work?
