It is. It's a whole new architecture, whose modular design allows it to be a multi-core CPU of different core counts, just like Nehalem.

I will go out on a limb and guess that 2-core, 4-core, and 8-core variants of the same architecture is a lot of fun for us (!) but not practical for a market. We will have a 4-core celeron in 2 years at the least. Consumers are confused enough already :banghead:

Me, on the otherhand, I want some 8-core video rendering action!

For those of you unfamiliar with Intel's "tick-tock" model of product development cycle, The company uses a "tick-tock" model of process development
And now I know, and knowing is Half the battle!

Yes, this special is sponsored by TechPowerUp, and is dedicated to prevent child from having weak, underpowered PC's. Unless it is an HTPC or File Server...cause....you know...that's how they roll.

We also try to provide them with ideas about how to use these PC Powerhouses so they don't use them for evil.

:roll:

I just hope when 6 core westmere comes out that the Xeon chips aren't too expensive so I can use them instead of having to drop coin on an extreme chip.

Good stuff, I wonder what comes after that. Needs for processing power are becoming less and less but intel keeps barreling forward so far ahead of the competition and consumers' needs I wonder if they'll literally outdo themselves.

Ill be laughing if they do, because pushing the market too hard will trap them in a corner, aka like what happened to most of the computer OEMs.
