Intel’s upcoming Caneland server platform features a new point-to-point connection between processors and the chipset allowing the processors to be grouped together. Four Tigerton processors are installed in the Caneland system for a total of sixteen cores of multithreading goodness.More details over here.
Supporting the four Tigerton processors is Intel’s upcoming Clarksboro chipset. The upcoming chipset appears to dissipate plenty of heat and is shown with a fairly large all copper active cooled heat sink. Intel also demonstrated the performance of its Caneland system with POV-Ray Raytracing Rendering tests.
