Windows boots on "Penryn" Tape-Out

Intel's tapeout of the first 45-nm slicon, dubbed "Penryn" has apparently gone so well that it will actually boot Windows, according to DailyTech. Supposedly, this is a huge milestone as no-one at Intel expected first-run silicon to be this close to fully functional. There is speculation that this huge success could result in Intel pulling in the release date for Penryn even sooner than originally forecast.

I wonder what clock speed they were running at, i remember early 65nm 'core' parts were clocking around 2GHz on the early batches.

Intel have gotten these chips back earlier than i was expecting as i thought it only taped out late november which would of put first silicon coming back in late feb

5Ghz would be blazing...

I think AMD has allot of catching up to do.

Faster cooler CPUs. Intel is looking better every day.

Intel is sitting pretty at the moment as far as i can see, AMD better have something hidden up their sleeves although there has been some quite nice developments in their true quad core sytems as of lately, which i think will be using the K8L architecture, presumably AM2 i guess or perhaps AM3...
