Intel announced the new processor “Nehalem

i’m not sure about the price.. i think maybe quite high… for the extreme edition…

SPEC:

  • Two, four, or eight cores
  • 45 nm manufacturing process
  • Integrated memory controller supporting DDR3 SDRAM and between one and six memory channels[citation needed]
  • Integrated graphics processor (IGP) located off-die, but in the same CPU package[5]
  • A new point-to-point processor interconnect, the Intel QuickPath Interconnect, replacing the legacy front side bus
  • Simultaneous multithreading, which enables two threads per core. Simultaneous multithreading has not been present on a consumer Intel processor since 2006 with the Pentium 4 and Pentium EE. Unlike the SMT implementations on the Pentium 4 and the Atom, SMT on Nehalem is referred to as ‘MTT’.[6]
  • Native (monolithic, i.e. all processor cores on a single die) quad- and octo-core (8) processors[7]
  • The following caches:
    • 32 KB L1 instruction and 32 KB L1 data cache per core
    • 256 KB L2 cache per core
    • 2-3 MB L3 cache per core shared by all cores
  • 33% more in-flight micro-ops than Conroe[8]
  • Second-level branch predictor and second-level Translation Lookaside Buffer[8]
  • Modular blocks of components such as cores that can be added and subtracted for varying market segments

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 11, 2008 – Intel Corporation announced today that desktop processors based on the company’s upcoming new microarchitecture (codenamed “Nehalem”) will be formally branded “Intel® Core™ processor.” The first products in this new family of processors, including an “Extreme Edition” version, will carry an “i7” identifier and will be formally branded as “Intel® Core™ i7 processor.” This is the first of several new identifiers to come as different products launch over the next year.

Products based on the new microarchitecture will deliver high performance and energy efficiency. This “best of both worlds” approach is expected to extend Intel’s processor leadership in future mobile, desktop and server market segments.

“The Core name is and will be our flagship PC processor brand going forward,” said Sean Maloney, Intel Corporation executive vice president and general manager, Sales and Marketing Group. “Expect Intel to focus even more marketing resources around that name and the Core i7 products starting now.”

The Intel Core processor brand name has gained broad awareness, preference, and market momentum over the past several years. The Intel Core name remains the logical choice for Intel’s latest family of processors. The Intel Core i7 processor brand logo will be available for high-performance desktop PCs with a separate black logo for Intel’s highest-end “Extreme Edition.” Intel will include processor model numbers to differentiate each chip.

Initial products based on this microarchitecture are expected to be in production in the fourth quarter of this year. These processors will feature Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology, also known as simultaneous multi-threading, and are capable of handling eight software “threads” on four processor cores.

Microsoft offer the high pay to get Yahoo

What happen to Yahoo now? Bill Gates offer the high price to take over the Yahoo. What happen now? Should be the Microsoft world in all IT Segmentation. Before this they already toke the Facebook now Yahoo. So if this trade successfully Microsoft will solved the internal problem in Yahoo first. I think this is the big trade because from Yahoo they can earn milion/billion profit.

Here Some articles from DailyTech

Yahoo Chairman Terry Semel resigns, Gates looks to solidify his online empire with the acquisition of Yahoo

Only days ago, the news broke that Yahoo was in troubled waters and sinking fast. The Internet giant, which ranks number 2 in terms of search engine traffic and number 1 in terms of total traffic to properties, posted a declining net profit for the fourth straight quarter. Worse yet, it announced that it would be cutting 1,000 jobs, or almost 7 percent of its workforce. CEO Jerry Yang stated that the company was facing “strong headwinds” and had to be prepared to make big changes.

Now, an opportunity has come knocking on Yahoo’s door, which holds the promise of transforming the online business world. Microsoft Corp. made an unsolicited $44.6 billion bid for Yahoo and its holdings this morning. The offer is one half in Microsoft common stock, and the other half in cash.

The move promises a sweet payoff for share holders, who would see their stocks soar 62% from Thursday levels, up to a $31 per share payout.

Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer was among Microsoft’s big guns to be pushing the move. He enthused that the move is the “next major milestone” for Microsoft. He continued, “We are very, very confident this is the right path for Microsoft and for Yahoo.”

Ballmer informed the media that Microsoft has been in talks with Yahoo, preparing the offer, for nearly 18 months now. He gave Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang a personal call on Thursday night to announce the bid in person.

A Microsoft-Yahoo team would shake up the online community by creating a legitimate competitor to Google, which current stands far above the competition in terms of search engine Traffic. Traffic research site comScore indicates that Yahoo has 22.9% of the search engine market and Microsoft owns a 9.8% share. Together, their 32.7% share, would pose a challenge to Google’s 58.4% share of the U.S. search engine market.

Microsoft revealed that it had first had broached the possibility to Yahoo executives a year ago, but was rebuffed by Yahoo’s board of directors and CEO. With today’s resignation of Semel, the balance of Yahoo’s board could lead to a different outcome. Semel was strongly opposed to the merger last year.

A year after Microsoft’s offering, Yahoo is much worse for wear and promises to evaluate Microsoft’s proposal “carefully and promptly.” As UBS analyst Benjamin Schachte puts it, “Last year, Yahoo told investors it needed more time to get on the right track. But you only get a certain amount of time to turn things around.”

Steve Ballmer stated, “We have great respect for Yahoo, and together we can offer an increasingly exciting set of solutions for consumers, publishers and advertisers while becoming better positioned to compete in the online services market.”

Google spokesman Matt Furman declined to comment, stating, “It would be premature to comment at this point.”

However, its safe to say that Google is not blind to the impact a Microsoft acquisition of Yahoo would make on its competitive prospects. It looks like Google may have a real fight on its hands for the first time in years, and Microsoft may soon add a new piece to its ever-growing empire.
