Bloomfield should have a total 8MB cache memory and it fits in a brand new socket LGA1366.For eight-core sixteen-threaded Nehalem processors you'll have to wait for the 32nm shrinks as these chips would be too hot on 45nm.
The CPU is still scheduled for Q4 2008 announcement and we are quite sure that Intel plans to have a big demonstration at the IDF Fall 2008. Until that point 3.2GHz Yorkfield at 45 nanometre should be the fast one, but we’ve seen Intel changing its mind for far too many times and it can easily decided to increase the speed of Core 2 Quad, if it feels necessary.
