As we all know, Intel has used for the Netburst processor architecture for a long time, the end of 2000 is used. Architecture is finally up. This requires a more efficient technology, Intel, called the Core and the development of processors based on NetBurst architecture stop switch.
the first processor with Yonah Core microarchitecture, processor notebooks. These processors can run faster and more efficient than the performance per watt than before. Also double heart-processor for better performance at home was not so high.
Core 2 is the next series for the core processor. Figure 2 shows the second-generation processor core as the Pentium II, Pentium. A number of new technologies to optimize the latest digital processing of the applications that been implemented. Generation of Core 2 products are also introduced to the quad-core processor Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 Series. This is the processor 4-core processor, each core of his work at 2.66 GHz and has 8MB of total L2 cache is named Kentsfield.
Kentsfield XE, another name from the first desktop Core 2 Extreme QX6700 Quad-Core Intel PC was introducing in the last quarter of 2006. Differences with a series of Core 2 processors except the kernel is used, the amount of L2 cache and processor clock speed, of course.
According to Intel’s Kentsfield is a quad-core update Yorkfield line with the series. There will be many improvements made by Intel. One example is the L2 cache from 12 MB to 45-nanometer manufacturing technology, new SSE4 instructions to improve performance on multimedia applications, graphics, games and more functions encode and decode video. Unfortunately, the protective function against excessive speed (multiplier block) is on and off Yorkfield Extreme versions.
Although the same package, the LGA 775 quad core processor to the motherboard with a new chipset, Q35, Q33 and G31 are used. Moreover, in the future, more applications and games, optimization quad-core processors, including the Ice Storm Fighter relatively difficult for dual-core processor are prepared to change the platform.
