The core 2 duo E8500 a processor for the medium high and that these lines will know more depth.
Earlier this year, Big Blue is proposed to begin to migrate to the 45nm technology. And even more polished the technology will undoubtedly become main stream until sometime in 2009 in the same year (2009) see the light Nehalem-based products for this section.
As brackets, it is known that Nehalem will appear this year, but only the series of ultra high performance and ultra high cost known as Extreme Edition and to top it this new processor will require a new Socket and obviously new motherboard thanks to bring the memory controller directly on the CPU but not much in the chipset.
Returning to the star of today, the Core2Duo E8500 brings all the betterments inherent in the core penryn. Penryn core comprises two families, the first dual-core Wolfdale known as and the second quad core presentation as Yorkfield the latter is not more than two Wolfdale in a single presentation.
The Intel Tick-Tock. Intel claiming that its core technology and lasted two years before a new leap in its architecture. It is also known as Tock. Manufacturing processes and technologies included in their products once the Tock appears, Intel is engaged in the first and second year to improve it every step of improvement in manufacturing processes as well as natural evolution as it manages Intel TICK.
Said that the family core 2 duo processor numbers 8 is a TICK though is of the popular opinion that it is much more than that is nothing but the reduction of the manufacturing process lower consumption and heat generation.
It is also to an increase in cache memory by 50% from their relatives in Conroe i-e 4mb to 6mb. It is keeping the same size adding to this new instructions and new materials for production allowing less loss of energy in communication among its millions of transistors.
None of this is new if you look at Core 2 Duo E8400 (access to this analysis by clicking here) which is also a Wolfdale but with a slightly lower multiplier.
