Default Intel Talks About CPUs for 2010

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Intel has just concluded its first CES press event of 2010, dedicated to "announcing" the already well known Arrandale and Clarkdale CPUs. They will be part of Intel's planned 27 total SKUs coming in 2010, including four varieties of Core i3, eight Core i5s, and five Core i7 models. We were treated to a demo showing off a Core i5 laptop CPU running a 1080p video with another video stream overlaid on top of it with a measly 10% CPU usage."</em></p><p><img src="" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Much of this leaked before CES, but there's still some good info to be had here. Highlights include an Intel wireless solution dubbed Centrino Ultimate-N 6300, which has three receive&nbsp;antennas and throughput of 450mbps, a Core i5 CPU that has two cores and four threads clocking in at 3.33 Ghz with a turbo boost up to 3.6 Ghz and a price tag of $196 USD. What's a bit surprising is that out of all the CPUs they announced, there's a lack of high-end CPUs...only the Core i7 860 is on the matrix with four cores and eight threads, and that's not a new CPU. Engadget mentions there's another Intel press conference tonight, so I expect that's where the high-end CPUs will get announced. We should be hearing about six-core i7 processors with twelve threads.
