Default Intel Details Nehalem, Dunnington, Tukwila & Larrabee

At a press briefing, much more was revealed about the numerous upcoming technologies from Intel. In this article, we will be taking a look at Nehalem, Dunnington, Tukwila and Larrabee, along with a look at the new QuickPath Interconnect.

You can read the full article here and discuss it here.

Nehalem seems interesting, maybe in 5 years I will be able to buy one.

The furture is looking very interesting for Intel "IF" all goes as planned............... Now if AMD could only get their collective POOP together again so we could see a little good old fashioned competition again, that would be totally awesome.

Of course, at this rate we will be seeing 32-core processors by 2013!
Honestly, I don't know how long this multi-core madness will go on, someday they will reach a ceiling, and I really want to know what are they going to do after.

By then everyone will have their own super computer at home that will operate completely on voice commands..................

AMD is down at the moment. I am sure they are holding their cards close to their chests because they absolutely have to. I am waiting to see how their video on die turns out. Also, when they can start to ship Phenoms with more competitive clocks, then we will see competition.

Eventually the programs we use will be able to efficiently use more than one core. How about we start there.

The future of CPUs is in parallel computing. NVIDIA is onto something with their CUDA architecture. Keep an eye on it. There is a lot of processing power in their GPUs.

They might beable to compete with the current gen CPU's with higher clocked Phenoms maybe. But unless they have some awesome hidden in their pants, they'll have one heck of a problem catching up to the Intel Nehalem when they ship later this year.................. Just my opinion though.

I think many people will agree with you, sbrehm, as disappointing as it may be.

It's been almost and year and I had forgot about it.
For the 8 series and I guess upward, a stream process to increase instruction using the C programing.
Only thing, so far it's 32 bit
It has a lot to offer so far, but still a good ways to go.
I would still buy stock in Nvidia

I am not so sure about CUDA, either. The last time I heard about it was at the announcement. Not really, but it's been pretty damn quiet.

Or us users can just open up more programs to compensate for the lack of multi-threaded apps...

I am not to sure about CUDA, outside of HPC situations. Not even Stanford's Folding@home program wanted to use CUDA to program a NVIDIA port to F@H, because it was proprietary in nature. CUDA and its SDK was launched last February, and things have been pretty quiet on that front?

32-core Intel processors will seem almost normal by 2013 I would wager. Nehalem-EX is going to be a native 8-core 16-thread processor, and it will be out by early 2009. Supposed to have a Quad memory controller built in... it gets its own socket though and uses FB-DIMMs, but still imagine buying your memory in groups of four...

As it is we will soon be buying memory in packs of three anyway, because the top-end desktop Nehalem is going to have a three channel controller.

As tech advances so does the price tag right along with it. All the different socket changes along with all the other new parts required for the new tech/build is getting just a little on the expensive side don't you think.

Having to buy new hardware due to socket change is a bitch, but it's still pretty exciting when there's a new CPU family in town.
