News from Intel Spring IDF

TgDaily has a short article about the Intel Spring IDF in Beijing that has lots of tantalizing details about Intel’s future server platform plans. The most interesting part in my opinion was the news about the "Caneland" platform and the new "Tigerton" dual and quad-core 65nm processors that will replace the current Xeon 7100 series MP processors (including my beloved Xeon 7140 "Tulsa"). My bosses should be prepared to get tired of hearing about Tigerton…

They also had an article yesterday about Intel’s mobile roadmap. There are four new Core2 Duo T-Series 65nm processors (T7100, T7300, T7500, T7700), all equipped with 4MB L2 cache and ranging from 1.8 to 2.4 GHz in clock speed and sporting an 800MHz FSB that will be shipping as part of the Santa Rosa platform. These will be available by the end of June 2007.

During the first half of 2008, Intel will release the 45nm Penryn processors on the Santa Rosa "Refresh" platform. These will have up to 12MB of L2 cache per core and will include quad-core processors. Intel is really turning up the heat on AMD, especially after the NetBurst architecture disaster.
