    HEXUS.article :: Intel drops Nehalem bomb. Integrated memory controller and graphics!

    Intel padded out plans for its upcoming Nehalem and Penryn CPUs. You may well be surprised by what's coming this way in 2008

    Find out more.

    Will the new Intel CPUs fit in existing S775 motherboards (It says Penryn will...) specifically my Gigabyte DS3 REV 3.3 with the 965 chipset (supports 1333MHz FSB) ?

    You'll be OK with Penryn, but I doubt that Nehalem will stay on LGA775

    Nehalem will need a new socket for the fact that the memory will be interfacing with it, rather than the northbridge.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Gah, Nehalem sounds to go to not wait for. I was planning to make a new penryn system but with Nehalem on the horizon soon after I'll probably be better waiting for that instead.

    Nehalem will also introduce an integrated memory controller on the processor. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to determine who has done this before, and some time ago.
    The Intel 80386SL was truly YEARS ahead of its time.

    Oh, and that Athlon 64 thing had it too

    Hands up who feels a but sorry for the AMD posse?

    /dislocates shoulder with speed of hand raising.

    They've got some serious looking internally to do, I'd say.

    As long as they dont die out and keep producing processors to maintain some competition to Intel, all is good.

    It's exciting times for the industry and interesting to look at Intel and AMD's outlook.

    AMD has always had plans - and detailed plans which only mildly change depending on the ecosystem or environment it is working within. The K8 core has lasted a long time, through a succession of small tweaks and manufacturing process changes, but it has been pretty much the same concept. Barcelona, too, will be another revision and update on it, rather than a totally new concept. K10 will be totally new, as AMD will soon have wrung out all it can from the present K8.

    Intel, on the flip side, used to work on long-term plans [netburst] which has been painful to a certain extent. Now ,though, it seems to have commited to totally new architecture (albeit potentially borrowing some bits from some places and others from elesewhere). With its move to C2D and C2Q we saw the performance kick - this 'core' architecture will last for 2 years with Penryn the culmination of all that's good about the Core microarchitecture, shrunk down to 45nm.

    We'll see the next jump up with Nehalem, featuring intergrated memory and graphics controllers, as well as a new host interface.

    With all this stuff from both sides, finally, the CPU market is becoming akin to the graphics war between ATI/NVIDIA of old - either step up to the game to win, or give up

    I have no doubts they know what they are doing

    Just a question on getting the AMD/ATI merger settled in

    Don't forget the Cyrix MediaGX that fits into the middle there! It had integrated north and south bridges along with the graphics controller. It then turned into the NS/AMD Geode and gained the IMC.
