It wouldn't be much of a leak if it didn't provide a glimpse at the Clarkdale products to come. If the roadmap is legit, Intel will roll out a new Clarkdale-based Pentium G6950 clocked at 2.8GHz with 3MB of L2 cache. The Core i3 530 and 540 will be introduced with frequencies of 3.06GHz and 2.93GHz, and 4MB of L2 cache.
A few dual-core Clarkdale Core i5 processors are also slated for Q1. The i5 650, 660/661, and 670 will boast clocks of 3.2-3.46GHz, 3.33-3.6GHz, and 3.46-3.73GHz -- much higher than the presently available quad-core i5 750's 2.66GHz. All of the mentioned Clarkdale i5 chips will have a thermal envelope of 73W, except the 661, which will consume 87W.
The roadmap lists Gulftown for release in the second quarter of 2010 -- though, that's not exactly breaking news.
