45nm and Beyond with Christopher Peters
Intel is now shipping Xeon processors built via a 45nm manufacturing process. These chips exhibit some of the best performance per watt characteristics on the market. Later in 2008, however, Intel plans to advance its silicon again via a new architecture code-named Nehalem. Chips built with this architecture will show strong single-thread and multi-threaded performance and include an integrated memory controller along with the new QuickPath Interconnect. In this podcast, find out how Intel expects this technology affect performance per watt of the Xeon line.
