Default Intel gives Anandtech a Yiddish lesson: Nehalem and Gesher

Intel's Stephen Smith gives away a surprising amount of info on Intel's 45nm process, and the upcoming Penryn processors and beyond.

"These processors will be launched in the second half of this year. Details of Nehalem, which will see the light in the second half of 2008, were also provided.

Both new processors are based upon the current Intel Core micro architecture and use Intel's newest 45nm Hi-k process technology with its hafnium-based Hi-k + metal gate transistor design. We discussed Intel's 45nm process technology in more detail previously. According to Intel, more than fifteen 45nm Hi-k product designs are in various stages of development, and Intel will have two 45nm manufacturing fabs in production by the end of the year, with a total of four in production by the second half of 2008."

"Intel's 45nm node utilizes metal transistor gates and high-k dielectrics. The departure from silicon-based transistors translates to a 5-fold reduction in source-drain leakage and a 10-fold reduction in dielectric leakage. According to Intel guidance, this means existing processors could run 20% faster just by switching to metal gate and high-k transistors. Gelsinger claims mature Penryn processors will operate in excess of 3 GHz per core, with 1600 MHz front-side busses on server platforms."

I've been watching the AMD stock prices and this morning since Intel blitzed the media with this news AMD's taken a bit of a pounding. Hopefully investors will start to jump on the low price.
