With recent reports indicating that Intel have chosen to scrap their upcoming mainstream dual-core/+IGP Havendale and Auberndale 45nm parts, the company has decided to extend the wait for similiar processors and will spend more time refining the process down to 32nm before introducing them to market.

Slated for sometime during Q1 2010, these chips are codenamed Clarkdale and Intel feels this is the more sensible thing to do as a 45nm CPU+IGP chip (Havendale) would produce some pretty intense heat whereas Clarkdale is an MCM (Multi-Chip Module) arrangement which comprises a 32nm Westmere CPU core and 45nm IGP.


While there's still very few details shared on Arrandale, these processors are said to go one better with a 32nm CPU + 32nm IGP arrangement, but the launch period Intel plans to have these ready for hasn't been disclosed.


Details here.
