11 Intel Penryns for 2008

Intel plans to release a full 11 new Penryn processors in 2008, according to reports. Five of them will ship in the first quarter, with core speeds between 2.1 and 2.8GHz; chips rated at 2.5GHz and up will get a 6MB L2 cache, while the remainder will have 3MB caches.

The second quarter should see three more processors, coinciding with the new Montevina platform. These units will also have 6MB L2s, but with speeds between 2.53 and 3.06GHz, and a faster bus rated at 1.066GHz. Power consumption should be a relatively moderate 35W.

Finally, three 25W processors are inbound for an unknown release date, targeting the mid-range market instead of the high end. Speeds should range from 2.13 to 2.53GHz, while L2 memory will scale down to 3MB. Intel has declined to comment on any of the above processors, as they have yet to be officially announced.
