Intel gives Madison a Boost
Posted by: duke on: 07/19/2005 02:09 PM [ Print | 0 comment(s) ]
The Register has taken the time to discuss some alterations Intel is planning for its Madison processor.
Intel has boosted Madison's FSB from 400MHz to 667MHz on two new models of the processor. So, you're looking at up to a 65 per cent boost in system bandwidth by picking up the latest and greatest Itanics. This refresh should be the last to precede Intel's release of the dual-core Montecito processor in the fourth quarter. The zippy FSB permits data to move from the processor to other components at 10.6 gigabits per second versus a previous speed of 6.4 gigabits per second. Montecito will use the same FSB when it arrives.They also mention that 9MB of L cache will be strapped to its back. You can read the remainder of their report here.
