[] At Least a Year for Mainstream Nehalem Derivatives

The recent publications of pre-release benchmarks of the 2.66 and 2.93 GHz Bloomfield processsors gave us a taste of Nehalem bringing in something special into the industy. Sure it's got us all flying but here's a reality: Bloomfield and X58 platform are premium products and come with high-pricing. They aren't mainstream products, not even that 2.66 GHz Bloomfield. They run on the LGA 1366 socket and incorporate QuickPath interconnect as a system bus.

The real mainstream product is a processor called Lynnfield. It has many features of its wealthier cousin, like 8 MB L3 cache, four cores with HyperThreading technology, etc. But the crunch is here: It features a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller (Bloomfield has tri-channel), it will use a different socket: the LGA 1160 and the supportive chipset codenamed Ibex Peak uses the old FSB as its chipset interconnect.

The most recent roadmap slide shows all this coming our way only in Q3 2009, and that's about an year from now, enough time for them to flush current LGA 775 processors from the market.
