Intel's new Penryn line - faster and smaller

Can you imagine a smaller, faster, more energy efficient processor than what is in our computers today? Well, Intel can, and they did. Today Intel unveiled its new Penryn lineup of super small, super fast chips.

We can speculate that these new chips will be sold under the Core 2 and Xeon brand name. But expect them to be one-third smaller, and 15% faster, and expect to pay a little bit more for these chips.

The Penryn based processors will start appearing initially in servers and network solutions in Q1. Expect to see these processors as a new standard for mobile computing. Look for these chips taking over the industry in mid 2008.
