Intel Nehalem architecture explored

Posted on Monday, April 14 2008 @ 04:10:50 CEST by


Head over to ARS Technica if you want to learn everything about Intel's upcoming Nehalem processors. They've published a three-page article that focuses on the major changes and the big new features.
Moore's Law has given processor designers an embarrassment of transistor riches, and nowhere is that more apparent than in Intel's 45nm Nehalem processor. Debuting in 4- and 8-core variants later this year, Nehalem packs a ton of hardware into a single processor socket. (Early numbers put the transistor count of a quad-core Nehalem at 781 million; no numbers for the 8-core model have appeared yet.) But trying to feed all of that hardware with the Intel platform's existing frontside bus architecture would be folly. So, just as importantly, Nehalem also sounds the long-overdue death knell for Intel's positively geriatric frontside bus architecture.
