Intel Takes Wraps Off Westmere Processors

Ainsley Jones

Intel has unveiled its new series of Westmere processors, The Inquirer reports. The Westmere series of CPUs will be broken into two categories: a mobile part code-named Arrandale and desktop series called Clarkdale.


The Westmere series of processors is primarily a die shrink of the Nehalem architecture. The Westmere family offers enhanced power management as well as minimized latency between the CPU, GPU and memory controller. Westmere architecture supports both Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost and includes new instructions for the encryption and decryption of data based on the Advanced Encryption Standard, says DailyTech.


The seven Clarkdale CPUs and 11 Arrandale CPUs will be made available Thursday.
