Intel Push Nehalem Into H2 2008

Word on the street is that the rumoured 'AMD killer' - Nahalem, should be with us by the second-half of next year.

Intel has revealed some information on their Nehalem processor in the latest roadmap updates. The 45nm Hi-K Nehalem-EP is based on 4-issue Intel Core microarchitecture technology, supports Simultaneous multi-threading and Multi-level shared cache architecture (L2 and L3). Nehalem-EP processor will arrive earlier than expected in H2 2008 and will be pairing up with Tylerburg chipsets. EP stands for Efficient Performance, one of the new naming for the server platforms for energy efficency on 1-2 processor sockets. There are also Mission Critical (MC) for best RAS from 2-512 processor sockets, Expandable (EX) for RAS from 2-32 processor sockets as well as Entry (EN) on 1-2 processor sockets to better align with future IT usage.

Perhaps the impending release of AMD's Barcelona and Agena cored processors for server and desktop respectively, have Intel a little worried. Especially considering that Intel's 45nm Penryn is really offering very little in architectural differences from the current C2 processors, and is really only a step down from current node size.

Alternatively, Intel could be just raining on AMD's parade as they have become accustomed to doing in recent times.

Could Intel be feeling the heat?

Agree with rast, i would definately replace the 7300, all the components you are using are great until you say 7300..... No good for gaming. 7600 is better.

Yer i guess.. but still the 7300GS is lame.. By anyones standards lol. 8500GT would be my best bet for budget. Unless its gaming then 8600 or 7600.

My Hiper died on it's 16th month of service. Can't really fault it otherwise, system worked a charm / no stability issues etc.

replaced it with a coolermaster energy saving psu, does the trick:rolleyes:

Hello Mark (from another Mark) I agree with the earlier posts. I would go with a FSP PS over the Hiper. (a good 400 to 500 Watt is plenty for that system)

And as to the GPU definitely use a 8500 or 8600 over a 7300.

(I used a Silverstone 400Watt with 4 Hdds, a pair of 7600GTs in SLI and water cooling.)

There's been a lot of discussion over the reliability of the Hiper Type-R 580w PSUs.

Many people have complained about them failing within 18 months,



I Am one, mine failed a while back and i believe it was Due to the exhaust fan failing causing the unit to overheat:( I believe this issue has been addressed since.
