Intel Nehalem has integrated memory controller and graphics

Posted on Thursday, March 29 2007 @ 03:22:56 CEST by

Besides lots of details about the Penryn, Intel also announced more info about their new Nehalem architecture. This 45nm high-k metal gate transistor based processor features lots of good stuff.

Let me wrap up some of the more interesting details:
  • Integrated memory controller
  • Some Nehalem processors will get an integrated graphics chip.
  • SSE4 instruction set
  • Four-issue core
  • Parallelism, will support up to eight cores per physical processor and some sort of Hyper-Threading to allow 2 threads to be executed on one core. So basically you'll be able to run 16 threads at the same time on one processor.
  • Multi-level shared cache like the Penryn
  • No FSB but a new HyperTransport-like system.
  • 45nm with high-k metal gate transistors
  • New socket will be required
  • It looks like Intel is taking over some of AMD's old and new tricks. AMD's processors already feature integrated memory controllers and the firm is also working hard on a GPU/CPU chip.
