In response to the news that Intel has started making prototypes of 45nm Penryn processors, motherboard makers said they expect CPU wars to enter a new level with dual-core processors operating at frequencies of 3GHz and higher in 2007. Two days ago, Reuters cited Mark Bohr, director of process architecture and integration at Intel’s technology and manufacturing group, as saying the US chip giant is “processing the first samples of the Penryn design, which will go back to the design team to determine if design is working as expected.” Motherboard makers pointed out that Penryn is expected to raise the clock speeds of the Core 2 Duo product line above 3GHz.
