Intel Developer Forum — Intel CEO Paul Otellini got specific today in his IDF keynote about when to expect 45nm processors in the "Penryn" family: November 12. Core 2 processors for desktops and Xeon CPUs for servers and workstations will all debut on that date. The "Yorkfield" desktop quad-core derivative of Penryn will be accompanied by the new X38 chipset, which features unlocked bus ratios. Intel also plans to release a second wave of 15-20 Penryn-based products in the first quarter of next year, including the first mobile variants of the chip.
Beyond 45nm, Otellini showed off a wafer of functional SRAMs manufactured on Intel's in-development 32nm fab process. Each die on the wafer contained a whopping 1.9 billion transistors. Intel expects to deliver mainstream products based on its 32nm process in two years.
