Intel Nehalem, Bloomsfield CPU and Tylersberg Chipset Close-up Before Computex 2008

When it comes to hot news from MSI, my favourite source has always been bit-tech.net. These guys have some very good connections with MSI. Now a week before Computex 2008, they have convinced MSI to let them get a close-up look at Intel's next generation Nehalem architecture, which is based on the Bloomsfield CPU platform and Tylersberg chipset also known under the X58 nomenclature. The following pictures show a 1366-pin quad-core Bloomsfield CPU (no model and specs for now) with HT support and integrated DDR3 memory controller. All Bloomsfield processors will require a new cooling. Regular LGA775 coolers won't fit. The Tylersberg X58 motherboard made by MSI has six DDR3 memory slots. Six becuase you'll need a minimum of three DDR3 DIMMs to run in triple-channel mode. The chipset also features 36 lanes of PCI-Express 2.0, so you’ll get a full x16 by x16 for at least two video card slots. The south bridge used with Tylersber is still ICH10, so don't expect extraordinary features when it comes to the number of SATA or USB 2.0 ports. Check out the rest of the pictures by the author Richard Swinburne over at bit-tech.net.

They need to find a way to optimize the games and use all that the PC's have, even if you have a 7800 or a 6600 card.
CoD4 is a good example - it looks good on a 7600, yet looks DAMNED SWEET on an 8800. Its efficient, good looking, and fun to play (SP as well as MP)

it didnt hurt AMD much, now did it? :)
Is that serious or sarcastic? Can't tell.

Either way, yes it did. Part of the reason AMD's don't clock as far is the IMC.

well it did hurt the OC, but at the same time they got faster at the same clocks. i think it was a fair tradeoff.

yes it did at first, the 130 clawhammer's and new castles oc'd like crap and winchester wasn't much better. It wasn't untill Venice/San Diageo that AMD could clock agian like the AXP days
