  • Intel shows off its first six-core processor, called Dunnington, which will be available in the second half of 2008. Dunnington is based on the 45nm high-k process technology and is composed of 1.9-billion transistors. It contains a 16MB L3 cache, is socket compatible with the Caneland platform, and is built for virtualization.

    Larry Dignan has more details of Intel's presentation.

  • Quad-core? Two Billion Processors

    Spell check wouldn't get that one... you mean 2 billion TRANSISTORS right? "Quad" by definition means there can only be 4 processors :)
    • Their right right

      Surely a transistor does a process by its very ability to switch on and off so quid pro co ?
