Intel Core i9 Intel Core i9 "Gulftown" socket LGA1366 processor
Fri, September 18 2009 | 4:44PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Today a Intel Gulftown CPU arrived at the PC Games Hardware office. We published pictures of the socket LGA1366 processor, which is based on the Westmere architecture.
"Westmere will be available in several variants. For gamers the Core i9 series with the codename Gulftwon might be the most interesting option since it offers six cores with twelve parallel threads due to SMT. Gulftown CPUs are produces in a 32 nanometer process (like the dual core CPU Clarkdale) and will be released for the socket 1366 (like the Bloomfield). Thus motherboards with Intel's X58 chipset will be required. The TDP is said to be 130 W. Intel's Turbo Boost technology is supposed to be integrated, too, in order to accelerate applications that don't make use of multiple cores. Apparently the first Core i9 that will be released is going to be an Extreme Edition processor. "
