Intel today revealed some details on their 45nm Nehalem processors but we
will tell you more later about Nehalem-based desktop processors that is not
discussed during the press briefing. Here’s what we understand from the briefing
:

1. Nehalem is on native 45nm Hi-K and is on track for 2008 release
2. 4-issue Core Architecture
3. On-die memory controller (DDR3 supported)
4. CSI or P2P serial interconnects
5. Simultaneous multi-threading (we told you before about MTT)
6. Highly scalable architecture (1 core/2 threads to 8+ cores/16+ threads)
7. Optional Integrated Graphics (probably on multi-chip package)
8. Multi-level shared cache (probably L2 shared and L3 shared)
