IDF San Francisco: Intel Publishes New Roadmap

At IDF in San Francisco, USA, Intel published its newest CPU roadmap which promises a surprise.

Firstly, the massive transition to 65nm process technology is to be conducted at a rather furious rate. As you can see on the picture below, already by the mid-2006 the amount of Intel´s 65nm and 90nm processors will be equal, and by the end of the year 65nm will dominate.

Secondly, the dual-core expansion will continue. In Q3 2006 their amount will be levelled with the amount of single-core processors, and by the year-end, dual-core products will make 3/4 of Intel CPUs.

Speaking of names in the server, desktop and mobile series, here´s another picture:

Now we´re getting closer to a surprise. The company plans a serious breakthrough in the performance/power consumption ratio — seemingly by increasing both numerator and denominator. As a result, a processor codenamed "Woodcrest" is expected to have this rato tripled comparing to the existing Irwindale...

...But the desktop Conroe is promised a groundbreaking improvement of 5 times Irwindale´s performance/power consumption ratio!

A logical question would be "How?" Well, read our next news about Intel´s CPU architecture and you will know.

And here´s a surprise we promised: on the photo below you can see the first demo system based on the aforementioned Conroe!
