Intel pushes Nehalem Into H2 2008

Intel has revealed some information on their Nehalem processor in the latest roadmap updates. The 45nm Hi-K Nehalem-EP is based on 4-issue Intel Core micro-architecture technology, supports Simultaneous multi-threading and Multi-level shared cache architecture (L2 and L3). Nehalem-EP processor will arrive earlier than expected, in H2 2008, and will pair up with Tylerburg chipsets. EP stands for Efficient Performance, one of the new naming schemes for server platforms. It should mean good energy efficency on 1-2 processor sockets. There are also Mission Critical (MC) markings, for best RAS from 2-512 processor sockets, Expandable (EX) is for RAS from 2-32 processor sockets as well as Entry (EN) on 1-2 processor sockets to better align with future IT usage.Source: VR-Zone

SO this is their Server Chip like the Xeons?

Sounds like Intel is fully scaled to release a ton of procs for every sector of the market. WTG Intel.

nehalem is intel's next generation cpu architecture. it should include something like HT and an integrated memory controller. if intel keeps up this rate of releases amd isn't going to have enough time to react....im really worried now....
