TweakTown spotted Intel's upcoming Nehalem processor at Computex. Intel was showing off a test system and the site says the demo was pretty impressive.
To demonstrate the raw power of Nehalem, Intel first started encoding raw HD footage into 1080p Blu-ray format and while we didn’t get any numbers, it handled it without a sweat at all and was on track to complete in record time with solid CPU utilization over all eight threads.
Next up we got a look at a program called Deep Viewer which brings a new way at how we could be looing at old photos in the not so distance future. Intel had a monitor setup with touch capabilities and were showing off how Nehalem handled accessing and processing huge amounts of data in terms of photos and mapping in real-time.
TweakTown believes the Nehalem chip may be running at 3.2GHz and that it may be available sooner than expected!
