New chips represent 10th generation

Intel has announced several details surrounding its upcoming Itanium CPUs, which will include a series that is currently referred to by the code-name "Poulson." The new chips, which were referenced during an Intel keynote at the Hot Chips conference at Stanford University, represent the 10th Itanium generation as the company jumps from 65nm manufacturing processes down to 32nm.

The Poulson chips have yet to receive final numbers for clock speeds, however the series promises to deliver up to eight cores. The current Tukwila lineup offers a choice between two and four cores, with speeds of up to 1.73GHz.

The platform will support Intel's Instruction Replay technology, a new way to quickly resolve errors with minimal interruption. Hyper-threading has also been improved with "dual-domain" capabilities that enable simultaneous front- and back-end execution, according to a AnandTech report.

Despite the feature upgrades, Poulson processors will utilize the same 7500 chipset as Intel's current enterprise chips.
