IDF 08 SF: Intel Reveals More About Nehalem
Intel opened up about their Nehalem architecture at this summer's IDF, and while we are unable to talk about performance data, what we can talk about is of great interest. Read on as we take a brief look at Turbo Mode, HyperThreading, CPU and Memory overclocking, the triple-channel memory controller and much more.
You can read the full look here and discuss it here!

That wasn't your hand in the photos was it?
It may just be a pet peeve of mine, but I can't stand not fully optimizing a system regardless of how fast it is, if I know a little tweaking here or changes there can make it faster still for almost nothing. I'll be happy once I can see some 1333Mhz CAS 5 or CAS 6 results compared to 1066MHz CAS 7, which is already "tight" since most kits are CAS 8 and CAS 9 at these speeds.
Last I heard DDR3 hit something around 2200MHz stable, I bet that a good many extreme clockers are going to be dieing to break 2400MHz on a Nehalem rig, and that it will probably happen before the end of this year if Nehalem's IMCs truly do not have any limitation with memory frequencies, or at least are par with their chipset IMCs.
I'll be happy with some ultra-low latency DDR3-1333 or 1600 kit though... amazing but I don't think I've seen any yet.
