Intel Nehalem CPUs ship in Q4 - eight-cores in 2009

Posted on Thursday, October 18 2007 @ 04:00:47 CEST by

Intel's next-generation Nehalem processors will arrive on the market in the fourth quarter of next year, X-bit Labs reports. These chips are rumoured to offer a large performance boost and will feature an integrated graphics core.
Intel’s Nehalem processors are based on the brand new micro-architecture that is not only more efficient and advanced compared to Intel Core 2, it is also feature a new multi-threading technology, which will allow to virtually double the amount of cores available. But besides integrated memory controller and a new type of processor bus called Intel Quick Path Interconnect (QPI), the Nehalem promises very high customizability. For example, Intel can add a built-in graphics core into Nehalem central processing units and alter the number of memory controller channels besides changing the number of operating processing engines.

The first implementation of Nehalem micro-architecture will be code-named Intel Bloomfield central processing unit (CPU), according to sources familiar with Intel Corp.’s plans. The chip will have two or four cores, depending on positioning, and will be able to process up to eight threads simultaneously thanks to a technology similar to Intel’s Hyper-Threading.
