Hot! IDF Spring 2003: third day goes on

Weve received a fresh reportage about the third day of Intel Developer Forum Spring 2003 from our Alexander Medvedev aka UncleSam.

Its high time to take a cab and visit NVIDIA. But first more fresh information from the latest keynote about server and networking technologies.

Sean Maloney, General Manager, Intel Communications Group, and Michael Fister, General Manager, Enterprise Platforms Group.

Itanium roadmap first:

Multiprocessor servers:
2002 Itanium 2 1GHz, 3Mb cache, 180nm process technology,
2003 Itanium 2 (Madison) 1.5GHz, 6Mb cache, 130nm process technology,
2004 Itanium 2 (Madison 9M) — >1.5GHz, 9Mb cache, 130nm process technology,
2005 Montecito dual-core, larger cache, 90nm process technology.

Dual-processor servers:
2003 Low Voltage Itanium 2 (Deerfield) 1GHz, 1.5Mb cache, 62W, 130nm process technology,
2004 Low Voltage Itanium 2 (improved Deerfield) 1.5GHz, 130nm process technology,
2005 Montecito, light version.

Nocona and Potomac names officially mentioned.

You can see that Nocona will feature 533MHz FSB and Potomac — 400MHz QPB.

There was much said about bright prospects of PCI Express and its chipset incarnations as well as about the importance of serial buses in general.

Besides, a new transaction performance prize was given to Itanium platform.

So long, UncleSam goes NVIDIA.

This is all for now, but we´ll naturally continue to inform you on IDF events in the newsfeed. And Alexander will provide more reports when he returns home.
