Intel Quad Core Itanium On Track For Late 2008

According to the

ZDNet interview
with Pat Gelsinger, Intel is back on track with their next
generation quad core Itanium codenamed Tukwila slated for first realization in
late 2008. He mentioned of a different microarchitecture, a different
instruction set for Tukwila and is driving for more convergence in Poulson and
beyond. He hinted that Poulson will have a common bus like CSI and similar cache
architecture which will bridge gap between Core and Itanium. Pat Gelsinger
revealed about having homogenous mini cores for lower end product line with some
big core cores added for higher end, performance driven applications as well as
some special purpose cores for specific applications. Intel is going to discuss
in more details about their heterogeneous and homogeneous multicore strategy at
IDF in April. Intel will continue to use the new transistor design and materials
for 32nm but is looking at a a new structure for 22nm and beyond.
