Intel Bloomfield & The Intel X58 Express

The new Intel Bloomfield processor will debut with the following features :

  • Four processing cores
  • Support for SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), allowing up to 8 threads to be processed simultaneously
  • 32 KB instruction + 32 KB data L1 cache per core
  • 256 KB L2 cache per core
  • Large 8 MB L3 cache shared by all 4 cores
  • An integrated memory controller (IMC) supporting 3 channels of DDR3 memory
    - Memory clock speeds of up to 1333 MHz
    - Memory bandwidth of up to 32 GB/s
    - Up to 6 memory sockets
  • The new Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) which replaces the front side bus (FSB)
  • Addition of 7 new SSE4 instructions
  • Monolithic processor design (all four cores on a single die)
  • Fabricated using Intel's 45 nm high-k process technology

The Intel Bloomfield processor will be paired with the Tylersburg chipset, which has officially been branded as the Intel X58 Express chipset. This new chipset will use the same ICH10 "south bridge" as the new Intel P45 (Eaglelake) chipsets, but the X58 chipset will be radically different :

  • The X58 Express will use the new LGA1366 socket (also known as Socket B).
  • It will not have any memory controller (that's now in the CPU, remember?)
  • The Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) is the new interconnect between the Bloomfield processor and the X58 Express.
  • Support for two x16 PCI Express 2.0 slots with the option for four x8 slots to support quad-graphics cards (CrossFire X).
  • Fabricated using the 65 nm process technology
