    Intel talks Penryn and Nehalem Architectures

    http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=382

    Let me know what you think: Nehalem being the big news with support for on-die memory controllers AND on-die GPUs!

    Digg here if you can: http://digg.com/hardware/Intel_Nehal...and_on_die_GPU

    Thanks!

    Now why in the world would they switch an IDF from the Bay Area, to China?



    Those 45nm quad core CPU's look huge, be prepared to fork over a leg...

    To boost their profile and strategic presence in a booming market. According to Intel CEO Paul Otellini, he sees China as having the potential of becoming the largest IT market by the time the new $2.5B fab factory* opens in 2010; hosting an IDF there is one way to draw greater attention / boost interest in high-tech investment.

    From Otellini:
    Our goal in China is to support a transition from 'manufactured in China' to 'innovated in China'.
    Seeing as I've postponed my second PC build to the second half of this year, having a Penryn-based system makes sense to me.

    on die memory controllers, that's LUDACRIS it'll never work!!!

    why are either on die memory controllers or gpu's a big deal?

    amd has been doing the memory controllers for years, and the on die gpu has already been talked about by amd as well.

    ah well, at least the intel fanboys will shut up about on die memory controllers being a bad idea now.

    I wasn't aware that was an engineer for Intel. Oh wait, you meant ludicrous.

    Poor Amd will probably never regain the crown again. Not that I give a shit about them anymore.

    Re: Intel talks Penryn and Nehalem Architectures

    first implementation of integrated memory controller,i think, will be like the first dual cores they had
    "yes,its technically a dualcore but err..we just took em 2 chips ya know and poped them tugether!! haha"

    gpu and integrated controller together will be interesting, to say teh least

    I think you guys will be surprised. Intel has the money and ego to spend it on getting the best engineering possible.

    ntel talks Penryn and Nehalem Architectures
    That's about it, talk. Sounds like they are trying to copy AMD. Seems like a big challenge for intel, as they don't yet have a "high performance" gpu or DCA. Good luck to 'em.

    He clearly forgot his grounding strap.
