AMD's move to 65nm has brought the opportunity to provide big power savings via their new Brisbane processors.   The two dual core models, the BE-2350
which runs at 2.1GHz and the

BE-2300 at 1.9GHz

both have 64K of L1 instruction space, and 64K of L1 data cache per core.  The L2 has a 512KB cache for each core as well, so there has been no real reduction there.  Drop by HotHardware for a look at how well they managed to reduce power and heat, and also make sure to

Intel's Pentium E2140 is a stripped down Conroe with a cut rate price.  The L2 cache becomes 1MB, and is shared between the 2 cores, and the FSB is reduced to 800MHz.  HotHardware's testing showed it to be about 10% slower than the C2D E6300, and about half the price.  They also pushed the 1.6GHz chip up to 2.9GHz with stock cooling.

HotHardware has had the chance to see some benchmarks on the upcoming 45nm chip in both quad and dual core flavours.  They are compared to the current champion, the QX6800, so you get a good comparison.  These are still a while away from release, so the chips may perform better by the time they are ready.

"Intel has released some fresh performance data regarding a couple of Penryn-based future processors, Wolfdale and

Yorkfield.
