    Intel is being reported to launch three Nehalem-based quad-core processors (Bloomfield) for the end of this year (Q4). Intel does not provide any official names yet, but the CPUs will be identified as XE, P1 and MS3. Working at 3.2GHz, 2.93GHz and 2.66GHz respectively, all three members will have a TDP of 130W, 8MB L3 cache and will support simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) technology. At the time when the new LGA 1366 CPUs become available, Intel will already sell the X58 and ICH10 chipset combo designed especially for them. The X58 chipset will adopt Intel's latest QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) architecture replacing its longstanding FSB design.

    Not Bad...

    I am very excited over this upcoming release. And 130W TDP isn't bad considering the CPU has an IMC (Integrated Memory Controller) now and is extremely powerful to boot. Anandtech has preliminary benchies using "non-finalized" hardware and it kicks some serious ass. The memory throughput is tremendous and it will only get better as everything gets finalized and production ready.

    Have a read here: http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/intel/showdoc.aspx?i=3326

    the TDP lol, doesnt seem like Intel really had a leg up on AMD on TDP now does it, there IMC adds transistors and now the thermal envolope is the same between both. Now it comes down to what the improved 45nm Phenom can do

    to be honest, i lost all hope in phenom... :( in my plans, the next rig will be Intel, but Bulldozer might change my mind and yet it is too early to say anything for sure
