INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, Calif., March 7, 2006 — Intel Corporation today disclosed details of its forthcoming IntelÂ® Core™ microarchitecture, a new industry—leading foundation for Intel’s multi—core server, desktop and mobile processors for computers later this year. The first Intel Core microarchitecture products built on Intel’s advanced 65nm process technology will deliver higher—performing, yet more energy—efficient processors that spur more stylish, quieter and smaller mobile and desktop computers and servers that can reduce electricity and real—estate associated costs, and provides critical capabilities such as enhanced security, virtualization and manageability for consumers and businesses.
Justin Rattner, Intel Senior Fellow and chief technology officer, explained that the Intel Core microarchitecture is the foundation for delivering greater energy—efficient performance first seen in the IntelÂ® Core™ Duo processor. It builds on the power—saving philosophy begun with the Mobile IntelÂ® PentiumÂ®—M processor microarchitecture and greatly expands it, incorporating many new and leading—edge innovations as well as existing IntelÂ® PentiumÂ® 4 processor technologies such as wide data pathways and streaming instructions. Intel expects processors based on the Intel Core microarchitecture, using Intel’s industry—leading 65nm manufacturing technology, to start shipping in the third quarter of 2006.
