IDF San Francisco: New Micro-architecture Will Suit All Platforms

Intel´s new microarchitecture, of which we wrote in the previous news, will be used in all three platforms, including mobile, desktop and server.

The mobile processors codenamed Merom will have two cores, lower TDP values, and optimized power consumption.

Speaking of the desktop Conroe, it will also be dual-core, but since power consumption is not as important for desktop machines as it is for notebooks, their TDP is to be fixed at 65W. Besides, different models of Conroe will feature different amounts of L2 cache. At the same time, the compact design and low power consumption will allow for smaller PC dimentions. You can see an example of all this, the GoldenGate machine, in the hands of the speaker.

In the server segment we should expect about 40% TDP reduction, 2 or 4 cores and a wider gamma of L2 size and multi-way configurations.

Speaking of manufacture, solutions for all segments will be made using 65nm process. As you already know, the transition to 65nm process is to be conducted noticeably faster than any transition before. This is illustrated in the upper left corner of the picture below.

Also on this picture is a list of production facilities capable of manufacturing 300mm wafers. Four existing fabs will be supported by Fab 12 in Arizona (before the year ends), Fab 24 on the Emerald Isle (early next year), and Fab 32 also in Arizona (in 2007).
