Cool For the Geeks - wither horsepower for Macs

The Lynnfield Preview: Rumblings of Revenge


AnandTech: The Lynnfield Preview: Rumblings of Revenge

a long and very interesting article.
There is one section that covers off the turbo aspect where if an app only uses one core that core is put into overdrive.....
as long as the temperature is maintained within an envelope of 95 degrees the processor array with flex for optimal use of the multiple cores for the particular application.

If those Quad cores get into the lappies then there is a lot of range of trade of power versus battery life to be engaged. Pro useers will be happy.
Some zingy iMacs looming a year out.

Here is the heart of the jump....flex power

Quote:
There's also a lot of flexibility in Intel's strategy. Intel could deliver lower clocked Lynnfields and enable HT to be competitive at lower price points. I suspect that the real strength of Lynnfield is in its turbo modes; they will give it the advantage of delivering maximum performance regardless of how threaded your workload is.
plus very low power consumption at idle.

Not much path finding interest....

Maybe this



Quote:
The new processors being introduced today are the T9900, P9700, P8800, and SU2700. The SU2700 processor features a 1.3GHz clock speed, 2MB L2 Cache, 800FSB, and a TDP around 10W that should easily enable very thin (0.8-1) laptops with substantially longer battery life (around 8 hours with a 57WHr battery) in the sub $1000 market sector.

The T9900 is the new dual core performance leader in the ULV market with a clock speed of 3.06GHz, 6MB L2 cache, 1066FSB, and a power TDP around 35W. Intel is also releasing the P9700 at 2.80GHz with the same features as the T9900 but with a 25W TDP rating. The P8800 features a dual core design, 2.66GHz clock speed, 1066FSB, 3MB cache, and a 25W TDP rating. Pricing for the new processors were not available and instead we received the standard platform cost ranges that these processors will be utilized in.
8 hours battery life and some power in a small form factor......and Apple has 10" screens heavily stocked..........hmmmmmm..pure coincidence I'm sure

Maybe we'll see something like a "maxi-pod" ... oh dear, I hope they don't use that! :lol:
