Default New 65nm Processors

New 65nm processors are already ramped to a major production scale http://www.tgdaily.com/2005/12/16/in...nm_production/

and there already being mass introduced http://www.tgdaily.com/2005/12/16/pentiumd_900/

It looks like they wont be any faster than 90nm chips. 65nm will only bring one thing: more money for intel. Remember how fast they got rid of 130nm?

Anyhow , im still kind of excited. Afterall, they can't develop anything worse than prescott... right?

Moo, TEN times was for future chips (and possibly the 45 nm transition).

However, 65nm Presler 9xx series *IS* cool*ER* than 8xx prescott, as shown by Anandtech's testing and overclocking. They use less power at a given performance.

They are being released at the similar clock speeds to the 8xx.

However if speed is what you are interested in, they will overclock much further.

The other exciting thing is the 9xx will have VIRTUALISATION.

Intel have the process working well, but we are all waiting for PRODUCT in the distribution channels and the actual launch.

I am going to skip "Yonah" (single or dual core) because it can't do 64 bit operation. The generation after that (August) will have 64 bit capability.

By then AMD will have some nice new offerings too.

Well, it's the press release of the project partner, so I wouldn't heavily rely on it.
But from the reviews I've seen (anandtech?), the power consumption indeed noticably decreases.

Does that also mean faster chips?

Could be the case. But I would discount anything above (stock-clocked) 4 GHz in the near future...
