Intel Previews Clarkdale Processor Performance Numbers

Back in Feburary 2009, Intel disclosed that the 32nm 'Westmere' desktop processors were coming out in the fourth quarter of 2009 and that appears to still be true. Arrandale and Clarkdale are the first two Westmere cores that will be introduced to the market. Both Arrandale and Clarkdale are dual-core Westmere parts, but the difference between the two is that Arrandale is for mobile platforms while Clarkdale is for the desktop market.

Just days ago AMD got to say that they had the World's first graphics card that supported bitstreaming of high definition Blu-ray audio codecs. We touched on this in our ATI Radeon HD 5870 review in case you missed it. The new Clarkdale processors integrated graphics core supports protected audio paths and can properly handle the bitstreaming of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The demo above was showing 8-channel LPCM output, but they also showed Dolby TrueHD pass through. Audiophiles are going to love Clarkdale for this feature and everyone else will be getting an audio upgrade if they have the right receivers without even knowing it.
