Overclocking 45nm Yorkfield Processors

@ 2007/09/19
This year at IDF, all the buzz is surrounding the 45nm processors and Intel is showing off a number of systems with the Intel X38 Express chipset and these new 45nm processors in an overclocked environment. The processor we saw being overclocked was the quad-core version of Penryn, codenamed Yorkfield, and features a 820m transistor die (it is more or less a pair of Wolfdale dies, which each feature 410m transistors) and a 12MB of L2 cache. The processor we had a chance to see overclocked was a 45nm Yorkfield that was setup to run at 3GHz at default.
