A rush of information on Intel's upcoming 45nm "Penryn" processors has just surfaced on the web, thanks to Intel showing off performance numbers and releasing stacks more details on their characteristics at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing, China this week.


All the latest coverage on them can be found at Anandtech and Dailytech, LegitReviews, bit-tech, Hexus, Extremetech, MadBoxPC (Translated) and Tech Report.


You knew it had to be coming. A year ago Intel previewed its first Core 2 processors ahead of their release, and with Penryn due out before the end of the year the boys in blue are back again.


Penryn is still pretty early, although Intel was able to reach over 3GHz on all of the samples we tested. Not surprisingly, the number of benchmarks we were able to run was quite limited. Intel also provided us with a handful of its own test results demonstrated at IDF Beijing which we have reproduced here as well.


As a recap, Penryn is the 45nm micro-architectural update to Intel's current Core 2 processors. The slide above shows most of the improvements to Penryn.
