We have heard more about Kentsfield, the 65nm Quad Core processor from a recent Intel briefing and it will be having 2 x 4MB of L2 cache which is essentially 2 Conroe cores on the same package. Kentsfield is slated for release in Q1 2007 and will compete against AMD K8L architecture. Intel refuses to comment which is better although they are confident Conroe will be leading in performance from second half of this year. The successor to Kentsfield, a Quad Core processor slated for later date will have 8MB of shared L2 cache. Intel is currently working with game developers to improve performance on multi-core processors.
