Clarkdale launch - the Core i5 661 - Clarkdale launch - the Core i5 661
Mon, January 04 2010 | 8:55AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Probably the worst-kept secretive CPU launch in a long time for Intel (after all, they pretty much spilled the beans last week, when they announced their CES lineup) happens tonight. Intel has shrunk the CPU to 32nm, sort of. I say that, because what they did was move many of the components over to a second 45nm package on the CPU, including the PCI-E controller and memory controller. Of course, that package also houses a graphics processor.
Intel only sent out a single CPU to represent the Clarkdale launch - the Core i5 661, which is the middle-of-the-pack for the new dual-core Core i5's, but with an overclocked graphics processor. Also being announced today is a pair of Core i3's in the $120-150 price range. I better stop now before things get more confusing. Trust me, it will make much more sense if you just read the full article, where we put the Core i5 661 against ten other processors in the $100-200 price range.
