Intel Lyndon Platform & Future Ts

Intel plans to introduce its first dual processor core, "Smithfield," in the
first quarter of 2005, as part of the company’s "Lyndon" desktop platform. The
desktop processor will include a version of the company’s mobile SpeedStep
technology for power management. The 2005 Lyndon platform will include the
single-core chips with 2MB of cache, including the enhanced SpeedStep and 64-bit
capabilities. Commercial chips designed for office PCs will include the iAMT
management technology, with the dual-core chips carving out another performance
tier.

In 2006, the "Bridge Creek/Averill" desktop PCs will ship, scheduled to
include 65nm dual-core processors, a second-generation iAMT technology and both
the Vanderpool virtualization and LaGrande security technologies. In 2006, the
Xeon will gain the ability for "I/O Packet Acceleration" and advanced controller
technology, both designed to speed up network and I/O processing. Future "T"
technology enhancements that Intel is "investigating" include 3-D and
3-D-animated graphics, data mining, network processing, speech recognition and
text-to-speech.
