Penryn s Penryn Has 410M Transistors, 110mm2 Die Size

Intel dual core 45nm Penryn will contain 410M transistors compared to 65nm
dual core Conroe with 291M transistors. The die size of Penryn is not revealed
yet but we knew it is around 110mm2, still smaller than the Conroe die size of 143mm2. The quad
core Yorkfield will double the number of transistors at 820M by just putting two
dual core Penryn dies together onto the same package similar to the current quad
core Kentsfield made up of two Conroe dies. Yorkfield will not the the first
native quad-core from Intel yet as Intel thinks it is more economically and
faster time to market to slap two dies together instead of creating a single
native quad core chip out. Three 300mm fabs will be producing 45nm processors by
H1 2008 where D1D Oregon and Fab 32 Arizona will start ramping first in H2 2007,
followed by Fab 28 Israel. The 45nm Penryn processors will follow the current
power envelope; 35W for mobile, 65W for desktop, and 80W for server and extreme
editions.
