So as to occupy to the maximum the stage front while its competitors bring out their high performance video cards, Intel has revealed new information on its next architecture of processors called Nehalem.
One learns there thus that thanks to the integrated memory controller the data flow between the CPU and the RAM will reach the 32 GB/s, and 25 GB/s between two CPU placed on two different connectors.
To save on the maximum energy, the cores will be independent (like AMD does already) in voltage and frequency. It will be also the case for various components of the machine that will be able to manage their consumption and frequencies of operation in an independent way.
It is also necessary to become accustomed to the disappearance of the bus system that we have known for many years. They will be replaced by QuickPath system functioning with point-to-point protocol. Note that this feature is related to the processor, and it could be faster on the top-of-the-range models than on the others; these variations will be used to differentiate between the configurations and to justify a little the differences in price.
