Intel's posterboy processor for the 32 nm Westmere architecture, the six-core Gulftown is now living, breathing silicon. The company seems to have already dispatched samples of the chip. Gulftown is based on the LGA-1366 socket. Featuring 6 cores and 12 threads with HyperThreading enabled, it holds ...
And it is none other than the Gulftown that is the central figure of today's article. The Gulftown core. Like Conroe (Core 2 Duo 65 nm) and Penryn (Core 2 Duo 45 nm), Gulftown has a whole lot in common with Bloomfield. In short, we can say that the Bloomfield has been given two cores and some third-level cache love.
Nov 26, 2009 · Here's some interesting background info culled from the BSN site on the naming conventions of the i9, also known as the sexa-core, duodec-thread Gulftown. Gulftown processor will use the LGA-1366 socket, already a home for the current Core i7-900 series of processors, so Gulftown will continue to feature 216-bit [64-bit +8-bit ECC per channel ...
Intel has decided to launch it's 6 core 12 thread Gulftown processor as the Core i9 Intel's upcoming flagship client processor, codenamed Gulftown will get the higher Core i9 marker. This 6-core chip will have every performance enhancing feature in the book available, including a total thread count of 12, and a 50% increase in L3 cache over ...
The following is a list of Intel Core i9 brand microprocessors.They were introduced in May 2017 for LGA 2066 chips, also known as Intel Core X-series processors. With their high number of cores, high power draw, high thermal output, and high performance, they are intended to be used by enthusiasts.
If you can't wait till its release early next year (only a few months away actually) here are some benchmarks culled from various sites who already tested the i9, also known as Gulftown. Particularly for tasks such as 3D modeling and video encoding, the 2.8GHz Core i9 is about 50 percent faster than a Core i7 at the same clock speed.
