Intel launches i7 processor in India !!

Posted by Unknown on Nov 20, 2008

In Brief : Intel launched it's Core i7 processor in India ....

Intel has released three different models of the Core i7 - all quad core variants with hyper-threading :

* Core i7 920 clocked at 2.66 GHz priced at $284 (approximately Rs.14,063),
* Core i7 940 clocked at 2.93 GHz priced at $562 (approximately Rs.27,830),
* Core i7 965 XE (Extreme Edition) clocked at 3.2 GHz priced at $999 (approximately Rs.49,470)

The Core i7 processors are markedly different from their predecessors and have many advantages over them.

  • There is the increased parallelism with the processor being capable of executing 33% more concurrent micro-ops simultaneously.
  • There is also the faster unaligned cache access and faster synchronization primitives. Intel has also implemented a new 2nd level branch predictor to avoid situations when execution units stand idle.
  • Yet another improvement is the cache sub-system that has been redesigned from scratch.
  • The Core i7 processor also marks an end of the legendary FSB (Front Side Bus). These processors feature the new Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) bus, which is Intel's answer to AMD's Hypertransport 3.0 and a three channel memory controller supporting 1066 MHz DDR3 memory is present on-chip.
  • Multi-threading technology (similar to hyper-threading of the NetBurst architecture processors) is also featured on these CPUs with SSE 4.2 instructions. These are capable of handling up to eight software threads on four processor cores.
  • Turbo Boost technology allows the cores to bump up the clock speeds when deemed necessary.
  • This quad-core chip is manufactured using the 45nm process, sporting 731 million transistors.
  • Combined with the Intel X58 chipset-based motherboards with LGA1366 socket, these are incompatible with older motherboards. Currently, these can only be used with motherboards based on the Intel X58 chipset.

I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content
as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like
yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm
not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally
off topic but I had to share it with someone!
