The server equivalent processor for Intel his upcoming Prescott is codenamed Nocona. According to the latest roadmaps it is planned for late Q2 2004. Around the same time Intel will release Lindenhurst, Lindenhurst VS and Turnwater based motherboards to support the Nocona processor and other future processors.
The first one way server board for the new gen Prescott will be Torrey Pines, which will use the Canterwood-ES chipset.

And, unless Intel changes its mind, we'll see the Alief board, a two way Nocona/Jayhawk unit using Lindenhurst, which will fit into Intel's Riggins chassis. At the same time, Brandon, a similar board will also be released.

For the Tumwater and Lindenhurst VS chipset there are two boards slated, each supporting U320 SCSI. These are the Grand Prairie and the Sun Prairie.

In Q3 of this year, Intel hopes to releases the Buckner one way system, for its next gen Tejas microprocessor, and which will use the Copper River chipset. For Racks, we'll see boards such as the two way Jarrell and Volcano Peak.

And in the first quarter of next year, out wil come the four way Harwich board, which will use the Potomac processor and the Twin Castle chipset.

You are probably wondering whether Intel will have PCI Express server boards. The answer is yes, in the shape of the Rumley board, which will also support two channel U320, while there will be a PCI Express Alief board too in the third quarter. ยต
