Submission + - Intel's Six-Core 'Gulftown' Numbers Leaked (

MasJ writes: "PCLab's Polish Website prematurely published test and performance results of Intel's new 6-core 'Gulftown' CPU. Soon after, the article was taken down at Intel's request. Numbers reveal that the new CPU performs almost 50% faster than the previous Quad-Core chips in parallel processes and consumes nearly 50% less power. The 'Gulftown' chip will ship under the Core i9 name and will be Intel's first 6-core dual-socket CPU to hit the market. AppleInsider got a good look at the article before it was removed and says that the CPU will use a 32nm process and might ship as early as Q1 2010."
