Default Intel UPDATE--New architecture after Penryn

....and we thought the 45nm Penryn is hot. There will be a major new change in the Intel architecture. The Core will be a thing of the past. Make way for "Nehalem" next year. Core 2 Duo, make room because you're headed out the door. It will still be using the 45nm process. Making a return here is get this: Hyper Threading!!! Haha, funny huh? I don't know if they will dub it Hyper Threading, but it will be very similar.

Nehalem will also introduce the first multi-level shared cache architecture that will allow the different cores on a processor to share data at the L1 and possibly L3 cache levels in addition to the current L2 cache sharing implemented on the Core architecture. This can allow for better data sharing between cores and increase performance for highly threaded applications.

The performance enhancement will allow CPUs with 8 cores to power down to just 2 or 4 cores in situations only needing those levels of performance. Talk about scaling!!!

Nehalem cores will be scalable and configurable and will include features such as variable size caches, differing interconnects as well as on-die memory controllers for the first time in an Intel processor. An optional high performance integrated graphics could be included on the same processor die as well!

Intel's summary is that Penryn would be ready this year and that we would see "production" of Nehalem in 2008 which usually indicates a late 2008 or 2009 time frame for delivery.


---------------------------------------


After Nehalem, Intel has plans for a new shrink derivative. They're going to 32nm process after that and it's nicknamed, "Westmere". No update to this yet, but Intel also plan on creating a brand new architecture AGAIN after the release of Westmere. This new architecture change is called, "Gesher" which is also using the 32nm design.

Talk about a peek into the future. More like within the next 4-years.

Holy crap, from the looks of this, AMD is in a deep hole.

I haven't read anything yet from AMD since their upcoming release of Barcelona and Phenom. But I'm sure they have some top secret plans up their sleeves too.

I hope so, one-sided battles aren't any fun.

OMG, I found something on AMD!!!

They're actually releasing a new Octo-Core in 2009!!!! It's for servers though so that's too bad. But before that, they want to integrate a new type of "fusion" technology. GPU and CPU combination (haha, I made a reply to this in another thread. If I remember where I put it in, I have to gloat a big, "I told you so", hehe. I knew it, that something like this may happen eventually. Even a couple of years ago, I always pondered on the CPU+GPU concept). It's on paper for now, but they'll most likely try to pull that off:

http://www.news.com/8301-13579_3-9763693-37.html

Other than that, "Sandtiger" will be released in 2009. It's going to have 8 cores, made with 45 nanometer manufacturing technology. Sandtiger will not merely be two quad-core Barcelonas fused together--it'll be an entirely new octo-core CPU design. AMD is working on a DDR3 memory controller that will do Sandtiger justice. Sandtiger will utilize 'Direct Connect 2' technology, which will bring 4 Hypertransport links onto the new chip!!!!!!


Man, is this thread awesome or what?!?! It's like looking into the future. Yes, I'm a fortune teller.

With Intel and AMD stuffing cores into their CPU's, I hope the die shrinks are helping temperatures.

Oh....wait a minute, I forgot to include more. I got that info from this site:

http://techreport.com/discussions.x/12945

"Bulldozer" CPU core, lol. What silly names. Look at their "Falcon" fusion CPUs. Looks promising as graphics are being integrated. Not completely though as the system still rely heavily on video cards, but it's a step in the right direction.

16 cores? Wow, seems like overkill now, but maybe by then we will have a use for all or most of the cores.
