    1 through 8+ cores, integrated memory controllers for DDR3 SDRAM with 1 to 4 memory channels 45nm Transistors
    e. Nehalem processors will also utilize the new point-to-point processor interconnect, the Intel QuickPath Interconnect, replacing the legacy front side bus. intel answer to amd HT link

    Nehalem will be launched in both native quad core and native octo core. [4] The definition of "native" (monolithic) is the configuration with all the cores situated on a single silicon die. The quad core variant is already known to have 731 million transistors, and a currently unknown amount of L2 cache. For Nehalem processors with additional features, such as GPUs, there will be two separate dies; one with the cores, and the other one will have the additional features

    8 core!?!?! That's crazy!

    What is the estimated cost for the new 4 & 8 cores? What MBs will they be on?

    I am. In fact that's one of the reasons behind not considering to buy a Wolfdale/Yorkfield at all. The Q6600 should do just fine for me till Q2 2009. I was planning for an X38 board with two cards but thanks to you I figured out that Nehalem won't be LGA 775, at least not the upper segment ones. Thank you, Morgoth. Then again it strikes up that Skulltrail is a useless plaform to buy if you're future-proofing considering that the LGA 771/775 will be put to sleep in 2009.

    the first 8 cored cpu with MTT (hyperthreading) is gona be a server xeon cpu 16 threads up to 32Threads
    the first 4 cored cpu with MTT (hyperthreading) 8 threads
    and 2 cored version with MTT (hyperthreading) 4 threads
    for mainboard its gona be a new design up to socket LGA1366 highend desktop and 2 socket server system , LGA1160 midrange desktop , LGA1567 4 socket server system

    Nehalem is at least 14 months away, if you want to wait.

    What makes you think it won't? lol. Besides, by the time you have humanely priced Nehalem derivatives, you'll be in Q2~3 2009 a new set of sockets bring along new chipset designs, motherboard designs, the uncertainity over whether the current ATX specifications would survive or would we see a new form-factor with the motherboards, PSU's so you see, a lot of things go into making a big change in the industry. Nehalem certainly is a big change that will trigger changes with many other things.

    Seaburg = Xeon? FB-DIMM2 = fully buffered? What does fully buffered mean?

    Yes, I will be going for Nehalem next year. Although I've been finding it hard to holdback getting an x38 board and/or Kentsfield/Wolfdale. *must...resist...temptations*
    But I will be changing Gfx card soon to DX10.
