The newest revision of the Intel Core microarchitecture, Codenamed Penryn, has been benchmarked.

Penryn is released in two flavour, Wolfdale, a 45nM Dual Core CPU, and Yorkfield, a 45nM Quad Core CPU. These new parts will replace Conroe and Kentfield respectivly.

Apart from the die shrink to 45nM, Intel have increased the L2 Cache to 6MB per dual core.

They were benched with a 8800GTX and to me, the most interesting number is that Yorkfield is 37.3% faster than Kentsfield in the Lost Coast, Half Life 2 Techdemo.

The full article is here.
