Default Intel Penryn Preview - Part I: Wolfdale Performance

By the end of this year, AMD will introduce Phenom and Intel will introduce Penryn - its first 45nm desktop CPU.

For a while there we wondered how Intel would introduce Penryn into its lineup, but as of Intel's last roadmap update we now know. On top of that, we managed to get our hands on a dual-core Penryn so now we know exactly how fast the new core is going to be. Combine the two datapoints and there's a wealth of knowledge to share. So gather 'round the fire, it's time to benchmark CPUs.

AMD seems quite confident that Phenom will be able to compete with Conroe/Kentsfield; if the race is really close between those cores, Penryn could be exactly what Intel needs to remain technically ahead in performance. If Phenom is significantly faster than Conroe/Kentsfield, then it doesn't look like Penryn will be able to save Intel. We should know for sure which scenario will pan out in the not too distant future.
I sure hope Phenom will be phenomenal, we need healthy competition to prevent domination

Buy AMD stock and processor is the only way to prevent domination. Actually Intel dominates the market before, now and in the future, unless AMD could market products that will increase SOM in double digit for the next 3 years. With the debt AMD is into; it will take that many years to get even.

It is not going to get healthy any time soon.

I think you need to put the low overclock of 3.22 Ghz into perspective of the 1.168V used which only shows that Intel can bump the clockspeed if they wanted too.

It is save to conclude that overclockers don't need to wait because the low multiplier of the 1333 parts makes them garbage for overclocking.

That is the seed planted for DDR3 when price drops to 'acceptable' level. I'd say in the $175 to $250 price range for 2GB, OCers will jump in.

Old marketing song, as long as you are window shopping, it is better than you stay at home.
