    Default Intel Core i7: Intel Sets the Official Brand-Name for Nehalem Chips

    Intel Core i7: Intel Sets the Official Brand-Name for Nehalem Chips.
    Intel’s Nehalem Processors Get Intel Core i7 Brand

    Intel Corp. has set the brand-name under which it will market its processors based on the Nehalem micro-architecture. Surprisingly, the company decided not to drop the “Core” name and the new chips will be available as Intel Core i7 central processing units (CPUs).

    The new brand name, which was revealed by Expreview web-site, may attempt to tell the end-user that the new Nehalem micro-architecture leverages the foundation of the Core 2 micro-architecture that is used in Intel’s today’s highly popular desktop, mobile and server microprocessors. What the new name hardly tells are the advantages that Core i7 has over its predecessor.

    The main micro-architectural enhancements for Nehalem that Intel has discussed so far is increased parallelism – the new microprocessors will be able to execute 33% more concurrent micro-ops at the same time. Additional improvements include faster unaligned cache accesses and faster synchronization primitives. In order to exclude situations when execution units stand idle, Intel also implemented new 2nd level branch predictor.

    Another key enhancement of Intel Nehalem is completely redesigned cache sub-system. The new chips will feature 2nd level 512 entry translation look-aside buffer (in addition to 1st level TLB) in order to further reduce the so-called TLB miss rate, a completely new feature on x86 microprocessors. In addition, Intel Nehalem processors (at least, in certain implementations) will have three-level cache hierarchy: 64KB L1 (32KB for data, 32KB for instructions), 256KB L2 cache per core, 8MB L3 cache per processor. Traditionally, Intel chips use inclusive cache policy.

    The world’s largest maker of x86 microprocessors also reiterated that its high-end Nehalem microprocessors will have from 2 to 8 cores, triple-channel DDR3 memory controller (with up to 1333MHz clock-speed supported initially), will use Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) bus and will support multi-threading technology similar with Intel HyperTransport that was first unveiled back in 2002 as well as SSE4.2 instructions.

    Intel’s first implementation of Nehalem processor is code-named Bloomfield. This quad-core chip will be made using 45nm process technology and will sport 731 million transistors.

    Intel did not comment on the news-story.

    Intel's Next Gen "Nehalem" to be Called Core i7


    Intel's logo for its main line of "i7" Nehalem processors will be blue.


    Intel's logo for the "Extreme" edition of the i7 brand will be black.

    Intel's "baby" -- its new eight-core chips based on the new Nehalem architecture -- have been named and are almost ready to launch

    The impending launch of Intel's Nehalem processor in Q4 2008 already has the hardware community buzzing. Nehalem has already shaped up to appear quite the performance beast. With the power of eight logical cores (four physical, doubled by hyper-threading) built on a 45 nm process to leverage, it’s shaping up to be a strong offering.

    The new processor will feature QuickPath, Intel's answer to AMD's HyperTransport, an on-chip memory controller, SSE4 instruction support, and an 8 MB cache pool. Chips have already been demoed running at 3.2 GHz, so early indications are that Intel has had relatively little process problems.

    Now Intel has made an important move towards the eventual release of Nehalem by giving it its official brand name. The processor will be branded "Intel Core" with an "i7" identifier for the first round of chips. This brand will include an Extreme Edition at launch according to Intel. It is also expected to launch to both the desktop and server markets, though the server line may come slightly later than the desktop lineup. Intel is also cooking up mobile versions of the processor.

    In months following the launch, other products with different identifiers will be announced according to Intel. Intel says that its focus with the line is to both up the performance over its previous successful dual and quad core offerings. At the same time it hopes to cut the power usage significantly.

    Sean Maloney, Intel Corporation executive vice president and general manager, Sales and Marketing Group says that focusing on the "i7" line is Intel's top priority. He states, "The Core name is and will be our flagship PC processor brand going forward. Expect Intel to focus even more marketing resources around that name and the Core i7 products starting now."

    Intel will maintain a numbered system similar to its past "Intel Core" offerings to differentiate individual processor models.

    Another significant advance for Intel is that all the chip's cores will be on a single piece of silicon. AMD has been using this method for quite some time, but Intel declined in order to improve yields. The chip will face off against AMD's upcoming Shanghai processor.

    Meanwhile, the Penryn platform, while passing the torch to Nehalem will see a bit of new life of its own, thanks to the Dunnington platform which will place 3 dies for a total of 6 cores in a chip package and target the server market.

    AMD plans to release a six-core version of Shanghai to combat this beast. A 12-core dual-die package version of Shanghai is thought to be in the works, and Intel is likely considering either a dual-die Nehalem with eight cores or consolidating Dunnington to a single die and releasing a dual-die variant with 12 cores to combat this.

    Intel is also focusing significant attention to its upcoming line of discrete graphics processors, code-named Larrabee.
