Intel Penryn processor model and release dates.

According to the latest Intel roadmap we can expect to see 8 processors available initially; the expected release dates have been included below:


QX9650 will first appear with a 130W TDP. The rest of the Q9000 series will start appearing in 2008. The E8000 series will also start clocking from 2.66GHz with 65W TDP. All processors will run at 1333FSB and not the speculated 1600FSB.

The QX9650 looks impressive, but the 130W TDP is a bit of a turn-off. No doubt the acquisition of the QX9650 will involve the swapping of sisters, and the possibility of donating a limb or two to secure it.
