Tukwila: The Quad-Core Chip

Posted by on February 4th, 2008 in tech

The first chip to pack more than two billion transistors is about to be launched by Intel.

The quad-core chip, known as Tukwila, operates at speeds up to 2Ghz, like a standard PC chip. Last year IBM released what was described as the “world’s fastest commercial chip” that operates at 4.7Ghz, but their dual-core Power6 processor contains just 790 million transistors.

Intel is set to unveil Tukwila at the International Solid State Circuits Conference this week.

Personally, I use and endorse the Euclid Triple Core Processor:
