    Default Intel Tests Chip Design With 80-Core Processor

    Following their march from standard processors to dual-core and quad-core designs in 2006, Intel researchers have built an 80-core chip that performs more than a teraflop of operations (trillions of floating point operations per second) while using less electricity than a modern desktop PC chip.

    You would have thought that after 3 years this would have come to market in some form or other

    Don't worry about 6 months after Intel releases it they will be found guilty of having too much knowledge or something silly and the courts will force them to give all the info to AMD. At which point AMD will take about 4 months to build the same thing and then sell it at 1/10 the cost of the Intel product. LOL

    Don't forget Intel has been in litigation for over 10 years in response to allegations of smothering competition. They (Intel) suspected a technology share coming to avert a large monetary fine(i suspect). God only knows (and a few designers) what technology their hiding under the table to avoid the tech share verdict.

    Fun fact: "Nehalem" means "to disappear" in Hebrew (as in - a die shrink makes a processor ever closer to "disappearing" to tiny levels), as it was developed in Intel's branch in Israel.

    The project formerly called Nehalem-C, now called Westmere-EX, is the 32nm die shrink of Nehalem. It will be released for multi-processor server architecture level only, and will not trickle down to a consumer level. It also has very few new instructions relevant to consumers being basically the "tick" part of "tick tock", as it's mostly a die shrink. It will be released in 4-core and 8-core variants, with a possible dual-hexa core (12 cores, as mentioned by Drdeath). More info here and here.

    In my opinion, the next (possibly) exciting release from Intel that is actually on a consumer level will be Sandy Bridge. The big problem with that architecture, is unless its performance smokes whatever Bulldozer will put out, from an enthusiast standpoint Sandy Bridge might be a big letdown, as it has been reported that Intel will severely limit all forms of overclocking on that chip. In any case, Sandy Bridge will be on the market months before Bulldozer, so we'll all know soon enough.
    As Sandy Bridge will be an evolutionary step from Core i3i5/i7, the same base name will be used, just with new variants, like "Core i7-2600". And, it will be on LGA1155, perhaps making it compatible to LGA1156 like AM3 was for AM2+ motherboards, or instead it might require a new motherboard.

    Edit #1 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155 shows that it will have a different pin layout and so not be slot compatible. That sucks for current LGA1156 owners if that'll be true!

    Edit #2 - Just noticed this:
    Quote Originally Posted by Bit-Tech
    Intel still plans to sell K-series CPUs which come with an unlocked CPU multiplier - and with this move, the K-series CPUs start to make a lot more sense, as they will be the only Intel CPUs capable of overclocking. Is this move a slap in the face for enthusiasts that will send them towards an AMD Fusion platform or are CPUs just getting fast enough that overclocking really doesn't matter that much to you any more?
    Another fun fact - Sandy Bridge was supposed to be named "Gesher", which means "Bridge" in Hebrew, as it was also developed in Intel's branch in Israel, but because an Israeli political party has that name, it was changed to the English "Sandy Bridge" back in 2007.

    Final thought, since the next evolution of Sandy Bridge, called Ivy Bridge, is due by the middle to end of 2011, AMD's Bulldozer might actually be competing with Ivy rather than Sandy. It will be fascinating to see how all of this plays out.

    Edit #3 - I just reviewed the chart, and this seems like the processor that will get our enthusiast juices flowing. 6 cores with 12 threads and 15MB of L3 cache, or 8 cores with 16 threads total and 20MB of L3 cache with quad channel memory? Sounds awesome!:
    Sandy Bridge B2 High-end desktop 6 cores (12 threads) and 8 cores (16 threads), Socket R (LGA 2011) (tentative), 1x QPI, 4x DDR3-1600, 51.2 GB/s memory bandwidth, v3.0 PCI Express, 256 KB L2 cache per core, 15MB/20 MB L3 cache (total), no integrated GPU cores, release date of Q3 2011
