The first tests of 32-nanometer processor Intel Clarkdale

As is known, for the first quarter of 2010, planned to be released CPU Intel Clarkdale (according to other data, Intel shifted the start of mass production of Clarkdale for the fourth quarter of this year). I wonder how productive will be the first 32-nanometer processor is Intel?


According to the source, his colleague from IT168 obtained with an engineering sample of Clarkdale, having a clock frequency of 3.06 GHz, and conducted a small test.


As seen in the second illustration, the processor is equipped with 4 MB of cache memory, and third level supports Hyper-Threading.



For purposes of comparison was chosen processor Core 2 Duo E8400.




According to the results of tests Clarkdale clearly superior Core 2 Duo E8400, but the games have a performance almost unnoticeable.


Raise the frequency of the engineering sample was unable to above 4 GHz, even if the supply voltage.


Regarding power consumption, with the rate at Clarkdale 6-10 W lower than that of Core 2 Duo E8400.


When tested the processor from the engineering phase of the sample returns to the stage of a commercial product, it will fall to the level of Core i3, and will cost $ 143.
