Intelís 6-core 32nm processors arriving soon

If youíve found that quad-core processors simply arenít robust enough for you, then here is a bit of good news. PC Advisor is reporting that Intelís 32nm 6-core processors will be launching in the first half of this year. This processors will be built on Intelís Westmere architecture, which means power savings compared to older 45nm products, and, of course, six cores instead of the four that we tend to see these days. The desktop variety of the 6-core processors will be Gulftown, which will be sold as a high-end variant of the Core i7 line.
These wonít be Intelís first six-cored processors though, those were Intelís 45nm ďDunningtonĒ processors from the server-focused Xeon line.
PC Advisor went on to report that in addition to the extra cores the new Westmere processors will be getting an updated instruction set and that they will feature the advanced power management tools that Intel has been rolling out lately, which enable the processors to limit the power consumed by idle cores when performing tasks that canít take advantage of all of them.
