IDF Fall 2003: Prescott, Dothan, Nocona, Potomac, Bulverde, Lindenhurst, Twin Castle, Tiano

On the threshold of Intel Developer Forum, the first of which is scheduled to September 16-18, San Jose, CA, the Web is already offering some provisional information on what we might hear at IDF. The North American mass media already referred to Intel to say the company had already started sampling 90nm desktop Prescotts and mobile Dothans.

According to the latest info, Intel plans to ship these chips in volumes in Q4 2003. At least, currently the company is sure that OEM orders will be delivered fully by the moment of official release.

Today the 90nm process is implemented at D1C fab (Hillboro, Oregon) that works with 300mm wafers. At Fab 11X in New Mexico this process will be launched in Q4 2003; in Leixlip, Ireland, the 90nm process will be launched in H1 2004.

It´s interesting that the first 90nm Intel Xeon codenamed Nocona is also to arrive in Q4 this year to be showcased at IDF. The first 90nm Xeon MP — Potomac — is scheduled to H2 2004.

And there are some more novelties to be shown at IDF, according to provisional info:

  • The next generation of Xscale — Bulverde
  • New server chipsets supporting DDR2 SDRAM — Lindenhurst for up to 2-way Xeon servers, Twin Castle for Xeon MP
  • New desktop form factor specs
  • Reference design for consoles on Celeron and i815
  • Tiano — a new Extensible Firmware Interface for processors
