Intel Demos 32nm Processors
Intel's Westmere 32nm Processor is built on the Core i7 micro-architecture but uses a more advanced manufacturing process. For consumers, the highlight for a smaller die is that it will consume less power and will be faster. Also for the first time Intel will also integrate a 2-channel DDR3 memory controller and IGP graphics processor on a single CPU package (although on a separate 45nm chip). The CPUs with the integrated graphics are code named ClarkDale (desktop) and Arrandale (laptop). They will have 2 cores with HyperThreading and will hopefully be in volume production in Q4 of 2009.
