Following the news which we covered here, Hexus.net has got hold of a slide which officially details Intel's new 8-core Enterprise Xeon processor. Codenamed Nehalem EX, it will feature 8 processing cores, with 2 threads per core, totaling 16 threads and as had been previously said, a transistor count of 2.3 Billion. This information was obtained as part of a pre-ISSCC conference call, but more information is expected to be officially announced at the start of the ISSCC on 8th February.

Will current x58 motherboards be compatible with this CPU? It sure would be nice crunching...

Xeons normally have different pin counts compared to desktop CPUs

They are likely to release an LGA 1366 version of this processor sooner or later but the one coming out soon is for multi-way environments.

All current LGA775 xeons are compatible with LGA775 motherboards.

Then you have the LGA771 (harpertown etc) xeons, but the motherboards for them are dual socket and FBDIMM.

These new chips will likely start life as Xeon MP 75xx chips. It'll take some time before we'll see them trickle down to Xeon 55xx and 35xx series.

My guess at the moment. I haven't seen a lot of news from Intel about it yet. Perhaps they're trying to move a lot of 54xx (chip and chipset) inventory...
