I love those Mac commercials where the PC guys is not was cool as the Mac guy. Wait take a look at who’s cooler now – pun intended. Dell is announcing the Core 2 Duo on the notebook their first 45 nanometer notebook. This is the first time that Dell has included the 45-nanometer processor as an option in the consumer-oriented Inspiron line.
We are seeing the benefits of smaller faster cheaper chips from Intel. Launched last month, Intel’s 45-nanometer mobile processors generally pack around 400 million transistors. One of the most salient features is the larger cache. The higher-end processors integrate 6MB of cache memory versus 4MB for the older 65-nanometer “Merom” generation, and the lower-end chips integrate 3MB vs. 2MB for the Merom-class processors. A larger cache generally means better performance.
I can’t wait to see quad-core processors hit the desktop and notebooks. Please Intel get them out faster.
Here is a nice video cartoon created as a commercial for Intel – It’s a nice MicroContent Ad – the future ad strategy for all corporations in the next 18 months.
