Intel Thurley has CSI interconnect - 2H 2008 launch

Posted on Friday, February 02 2007 @ 17:34:01 CET by

In the second half of 2008 we can expect the new Thurley server platform from Intel. Just like Stoutland it will feature an integrated memory controller in the Gainestown processor.
The Thurley volume server "platform" will support 42 PCIe lanes, of which 36 are generation 2 and six generation one. On the memory front, it will support DDR3 800/1066/1333 speeds, with six channels - that is to say three channels for each Gainestown CPU, and a total memory capacity of 96GB.

On the storage front, Monsieur Thurley will support eight SAS/SATA 3Gb/s with hardware RAID 5 which is codenamed Sunrise Lake. It will also support six SATA-2 ports with RAID 5.

The Tylersburg-DP chipset will also support Dual GbE Zoar/Adorami, and 10GbE "Oplin". According to documents seen by the INQ, there will be separate links for CPU-CPU and CPU-IOH traffic, while some features such as TM1 and TM2, DBS and GV3 will be cannibalised from Stoakley.

It is also likely to include extended visualisation, release 3.0 of iAMT, and will come with additional instructions to improve text processing and string search.
