Intel Nehalem processor may support tripple-channel memory

Posted on Friday, October 26 2007 @ 00:00:25 CEST by

The Intel Nehalem processor is still about a year away from us but it's starting to look pretty interesting. This chip will feature an integrated memory controller, integrated graphics and according to new rumours it may also have tripple-channel memory support.
Intel has shouted on the rooftops that Nehalem's memory controller will be integrated, much like the one in AMD's current chips, but the company has said very little beyond that. According to Fudzilla, the "Bloomfield" desktop flavor of Nehalem and its Tylersburg chipset will support three channels of DDR3 memory clocked at 800MHz, 1066MHz, or 1333MHz. There's no word on higher speeds, but Nehalem supposedly won't support DDR2 RAM at all.

If Fudzilla has its facts straight, Nehalem will yield an impressive 31.99GB/s of theoretical maximum memory bandwidth from three channels of DDR3-1333 RAM. Couple that with four or eight cores packing twice as many threads, and AMD may face a potent foe indeed.
