Intel will present Xeon processor on eight-cores

A slight information leak in the network gave us some heads up on Intel's new invention. During an International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) conference in San Francisco Intel will present their eight-core Xeon processor for high performance server systems. Conference will start on February 8, 2009 to February 12, 2009.

Xeon chips are built on Nehalem micro-architecture and will be produced under 45-nm technology. Each processor holds 2.3 billion transistors and will use QPI motherboard technology to communicate with its neighbours, making about 6.4 billion transactions per second. New processor will require a new type of motherboard supporting Socket LGA1567. We can estimate that soon we'll see a third level of cache-memory up to 24 MB, but no promises yet.

In just over a week from now, we'll be able to present you more information regarding the new Xeon eight-core processor from Intel.
