Intel’s Silverthorne Processor for MIDs

ntel has revealed some new technical information about their new low-power processor targeted at the MID (Mobile Internet Device) space. Rather than being a low power version of their existing processor, Silverthorne is an entirely new micro architecture. The processor will be Intel’s smallest in 15 years and is based on their 45 nm high-Kmetal gate technology. Silverthorne is a 64-bit, multithreaded processor with a 16-stage, in-order pipeline. The power consumption will be between 0.6 to 2 watts and will deliver between 1 to 2 GHz of performance. Silverthorne is expected to become available sometime in the second quarter of 2008.
