Intel’s ‘Presler’ 65nm dual-core chip ‘unstable’

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:13 am

Sampling Intel’s 65nm dual-core Presler processors has revealed some stability problems, according to unspecified motherboard makers, adding that the problematic CPUs include the 2.8GHz 920 and 3.0GHz 930 series. Launch of end products based on the Intel Presler core may be pushed back from the January 2006 date originally scheduled by system vendors, the makers noted.

Samples of Intel’s next-generation Yonah processors, on the other hand, also built using the 65nm manufacturing process, have gone through tests smoothly, the makers indicated. Launch of dual-core Yonah-based products is expected to take place in January of next year as originally planned, the makers added.
