Intel: Core i5 with up to 3.6 GHz in Turbo Mode at 95 watt TDP
The first Intel Core i5 processors will be delivered in three versions and 45 nanometer structure at first. Intel seems to have run many optimizations given the clock speeds and the 95 watt TDP.
The Core i5 CPU (LGA 1156), codename Lynnfield, will become available in three versions at first. The frequencies are set to 2,660, 2,800 and 2,930 MHz. The TDP (Thermal Design Power) is supposed to reach 95 watt for the 45 nanometer products.
According to a report of hkpc.net Intel seems to have optimized the core and the Turbo Mode. Previous Core i7 models increase the multiplier by two steps at a TDP of 130 watt, while the new Core i5 reach five steps at 95 watt TDP (depending on the model to 3,200, 3,460 and 3,600 MHz).
We are anxious to see what Intel can reach with the future 32 nanometer variants of the Nehalem architecture.
