Intel has revealed some information on its eight-core ‘Poulson’ itanium chips at the Hot Chips conference at held at Stanford University.
According to tech site electronista, Intel has released some info on its upcoming itanium CPUs, which don the code name “Poulson”.
A keynote speaker at the Hot Chips conference said the 10th generation itanium chip will jump from a manufacturing process of 65nm to 32nm.
So far no final numbers have been revealed when it comes to clock speeds, however the series promises to deliver eight cores. Intel’s current Tukwila line up currently offers two and four cores with speeds up to 1.73GHz.
The platform will benefit from Intel’s Instruction Replay Technology which is capable of rectifying errors with minimal interruptions. There’s also ‘dual-domain’ hyper-threading enabling simultaneous front and back end execution.
Despite its upgrades, Intel’s Poulson processor will still utilize the current 7500 chipset currently being used for enterprise chips.
