Intel: Octa-core CPU by late 2009 or early 2010

Posted on Tuesday, April 07 2009 @ 19:56:13 CEST by

Intel shared that its first Nehalem server processors with eight cores will be available within less than a year, an exact launch date is still unknown but it should be either late 2009 or early 2010.
“What you’ll get at the beginning of next year – late this year or the beginning of next year – will be the push into the four-socket, eight-socket, and above space,” said Shannon Poulin, Xeon platform director in Intel's server products group, in an interview with IDG News Services.

Intel Xeon processor with eight cores based on code-named Nehalem micro-architecture has 2.3 billion transistors and is made using 45nm process technology. The chip that is known under Beckton code-name will have four point-to-point quick path interconnect links to connect to other processors as well as system I/O operating at up to 6.4GT/s. Like all Nehalem-class chips, this processor for expandable systems will feature built-in memory controller, which will have four channels. The processor will require a new platform with LGA-1567 sockets.
