The world's main supplier of microprocessors, Intel Corp., plans to offer a central processing unit for servers, which will be 15 times faster compared to today's chips and which will contain up to 32 processing engines, according to a media report. The processor code-named Gulftown will have "eight processing nodes" with four cores on each one, according to TG Daily web-site, which may mean that the chip will consist of several physical dice. Every die will sport four processing engines, 3MB unified level-three cache, while every core will have 512KB L2 cache. The dice will be connected to each other using "a ring architecture" interconnect technology.
