Within two years Intel might launch Xeon and Itanium server processors with integrated memory controllers.

The server microprocessors that will be available in 2007 will reportedly use common serial interconnect (CSI) bus instead of traditional processor system bus and will support FB DIMM memory modules. The first chip from Intel to have built-in memory controller is claimed to be Tukwila, a multi-core Intel Itanium processor. Intel believes that by the end of 2007 all server processors will have at least two cores. More details at X-bit Labs
