VR Zone claims the 45nm Nehalem processor from Intel will arrive earlier than expected, in the second half of 2008. The Nehalem-EP will support Simultaneous multi-threading and Multi-level shared cache architecture (L2 and L3) and will arrive together with the Tylerburg chipset.
EP stands for Efficient Performance, one of the new naming for the server platforms for energy efficiency on 1-2 processor sockets. There are also Mission Critical (MC) for best RAS from 2-512 processor sockets, Expandable (EX) for RAS from 2-32 processor sockets as well as Entry (EN) on 1-2 processor sockets to better align with future IT usage.
