IDF Fall 2003: new 64-bit Tanglewood; some info on Tiano

We got to know more about Intel ´s IDF Fall 2003 in San Jose (September 16-18) already described in our new. The company is also going to offer some information about the high-end Itanium chips codenamed "Tanglewood".

Tanglewood will host up to 16 CPU cores in a single package. Initially it´s expected to be released as a 4-way model made using 90nm process. 8- and 16-way chips are to arrive after the 65nm process is launched.

Though it´s still early to speak of Tanglewood release dates, considering the approximate release dates of dual-core Itanium codenamed "Montecito", we assume that Tanglewood might be announced in 2006. Already today Intel plans Tanglewood energy consumption not to exceed that of today´s Itanium. By the way, 16-way core is not an innovation for the company that already ships 16-core server chips.

Tiano this name will be given to BIOS being the first development of Intel´s EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) initiative. Launched several years ago, EFI is expected to replace usual 8-bit BIOS sometimes.
