CSI will be used as the internal fabric for almost all future Intel systems starting with Tukwila, an Itanium processor and Nehalem, an enhanced derivative of the Core microarchitecture, slated for 2008. Not only will CSI be the cache coherent fabric between processors, but versions will be used to connect I/O chips and other devices in Intel based systems..
