All of the above processors are based on Intel’s new “Penryn” 45nm core, the architectural details of which we’ve already explored in our reviews of Intel’s Stoakley platform and 45nm Xeons and Core 2 Extreme QX9650. In short, Penryn brings a smaller process (45nm instead of 65nm), more and smarter cache, SSE4 instructions, a faster divider, speedier hardware virtualization, and other tweaks. The Stoakley server/workstation platform for the new Xeons, meanwhile, introduces higher performance as well as support for 1600MHz front-side bus speeds, 800MHz DDR2 FB-DIMMs, and greater amounts of memory.
