Next week, we'll be heading to the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco to hear about the chipmaker's upcoming products and plans. Intel has given us a little teaser ahead of time, though.
The company says its 32-nm process has now been certified, and wafers of 32-nm Clarkdale and Arrandale processors "are moving through the factory in support of planned [fourth-quarter] revenue production." In related news, Intel has developed a process that lets it build full-featured system-on-a-chip devices at the 32-nm node.
From what we can tell, the 32-nm SoC process technology will be used to build Jasper Forest, a chip for embedded, communications, and storage systems. Jasper Forest will have an on-die I/O hub. Intel says this product will deliver the "same robust performance" as Nehalem-based Xeon 5500 CPUs but with 27W lower system power consumption.
Otherwise, you can look forward to news about Clarksfield (Lynnfield's notebook-bound cousin), new netbook and MID designs, Moorestown (the upcoming Atom SoC), and Sodaville Atom SoCs for consumer-electronics devices. Stay tuned.
