65nm Intels Coming

Add Your Comments

Yes, Virginia, there is such a thing as 65nm Pentium IVs, though they’ve been noticed mostly by their near-total absence so far.

A web search shows a handful of places where you can order them, though the sites generally indicate they won’t actually be available for a week or two.

Just so you know how to look for these buggers:

1) All 65nm “regular” dual cores will have an Intel processor number 9xx: the initial processors will be the 950 (3.4GHz), 940 (3.2), 930 (3) and 920 (2.8).

2) All 65nm “regular” single cores will have an Intel processor number 6x1: the initial processors will be the 661 (3.6GHz), 651 (3.4), 641 (3.2), and 631 (3).

Just to put this in a nice chart and give you some better keywords to help you search for one (not that we’re suggesting, yet, or ever, that this would be a good idea, just don’t know yet):

No, we’re not done yet. There’s one more desktop line: Core Duo. Problem is, Intel hasn’t finished listing everything yet, but if you go here and here, you’ll see what’s there.

Apparently, there’s a 1.5GHz Core Duo out there. It’s an OEM chip only, but if a few slide into some retailers’ hands, it probably will provide some big percentage overclocks.

(BTW, while these chips are listed as socket 478, that does not mean your old socket 478 mobo has a new lease on life. It’s a Micro-FCPGA socket 478, the same used for notebooks. Actually, they’re the exact same chips as those that will be used in notebooks)
