Intel demonstrated its Tigerton architecture and Caneland server platform which will both be released next year:
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.

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.
