[dvHW] Intel Bloomfield has 32GB/s memory bandwidth

A leaked slide unveils some of the features of Intel's upcoming Bloomfield processor and the X58 Express chipset (formerly known as Tylersburg).

The Bloomfield will be a 45nm processor with 4 cores and 8 processing threads, SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading), 8MB shared L3 chache, an integrated memory controller with 3-channel DDR3 support, Intel QPI (much more bandwidth than FSB) and seven new SSE4 instructions. The X58 will support dual x16 PCI Express 2.0 or four cards at x8.

The slide indicates triple-channel DDR3 memory will have a memory bandwidth of up to 32GB/s, that's almost 30 percent more bandwidth than the 25.6GB/s of the X48 chipset's dual channel DDR3.

Also mentioned in the slide is that the platform will offer physics engine scaling for ultra realistic environments. This could mean Intel's upcoming Nehalem platform may have hardware support for physics processing.

All sounds good. Now as long as they don't screw it up with an overclock lock. Also, wasn't the Shanghai core meant to come with 8 cores?

disgustingly huge bandwidth...

All this great hardware capabilities, and no decent programmers to use it effectively...

I bet crysis will still run like crap on one of these setups...
good enough

Im lost. What does this have to do with a company in which makes GPU's? I thought they were talking about CPU's here. I dont know about you but I would take any non integrated card over an integrated one.

Although it is somewhat unfair, he does do a great job contributing, so I cant blame him for that. Just keep up what you're doing, its fine with me.

That's pretty sick!

BTW, I will be for sure switching to AMD if they lock out overclocking on it. I'll lose one of my hobbies (since I can't afford a $900-$1200 processor).
