Intel's next-generation processor microarchitecture is called "Nehalem", and it will usher in the era of CPU-based
memory controllers for the chip maker by the end of 2008.
At Computex 2008 this week, Intel showcased a half dozen socket 1366
Nehalem-ready motherboards in its booth at the new Nangang exhibition hall in
Taipei. The Nehalem motherboards and demo system were all based on the
upcoming Intel X58 "Tylersburg" chipset. Tylersburg is a PCI express 2.0
solution which supports 2x16 or 4x8 PCI-e videocards, Intel QuickPath
Interconnect, and most notably three channels of DDR3.
