Pentium V vs AMD K9Tejas to be realized as Pentium V in the near future?
One of the more interesting developments over at The Inquirer is word that Intel will eventually release their Pentium V sometime late next year. The 90 nanometer CPU is said to debut at clock speeds of around 5-7GHz, featuring 2MB+ L2 cache and maybe even a 4000MHz (maximum) FSB, though that's obviously to be taken with a grain of salt.
Intel may utilize the Tejas core (info) for this CPU, which doesn't sound unreasonable seeing as how this core is planned to hit speeds of up to 7GHz (news).
Also of equal interest is the "stackable design" this Pentium V seems to feature that will eventually allow for 64-bit functionality needed to support a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows called "Elements".
"The processor we believe, sits in the LGA 775 pin socket, and above it is a very thin heatsink. But, according to sources close to the firm’s plans, another permeable heatsink can sit between this and another microprocessor module, giving a stackable design.
According to this source, and the details have not been confirmed a module sitting on top could provide 64-bit extensions.
The idea seems to be that people can buy a 32-bit module, and then add in the 64-bit processor."
The rumors do sound a little strange, so we'll likely have to wait for a while before we get anything that can be set in stone.
AMD K9 llegara hasta 10Ghz
