Intel’s latest roadmap reveals frequencies of upcoming desktop Penryn family processors. Intel has nine desktop Penryn processors in the pipeline with clock speeds set for seven of the new models. Four of the upcoming desktop Penryn models are quad-core Yorkfieldwhile five of the models are dual-core Wolfdale.

Intel has set the clock speeds for three of the upcoming Yorkfield models. Yorkfield models clock in at 2.83 GHz, 2.66 GHz and 2.50 GHz with 1333 MHz front-side bus speeds. Intel has two different cache sizes for Yorkfield – 12MB and 6MB. The 2.83 GHz and 2.66 GHz models have 12 MB of L2 cache while the entry-level 2.50 GHz model has 6MB.

Four of the dual-core Wolfdale models have clock speeds set in stone. The four models will arrive at 3.16 GHz, 3.00 GHz, 2.83 GHz and 2.66 GHz. All models feature 1333 MHz front-side bus speeds and 6MB of L2 cache. Intel has not set model numbers for the upcoming desktop Penryn processors yet, but all will carry the Core 2 name.

Intel has two additional desktop Penryn models with to be announced, or TBA, clock speeds – a Yorkfield and a Wolfdale. The TBA Yorkfield features 12MB of L2 cache while the TBA Wolfdale features 6MB. Both processors feature 1333 MHz front-side bus speeds. Unique to the two TBA processors is validation for Intel’s Stable Image Platform Program 2008.
