While most of us had only one thing on our minds this weekend, Intel was hard at work giving news about some interesting new technologies they are going to introduce.  Tukwila is going to be literally huge, not simply because Itanium is due for an update, but also because it will have 2 billion transistors on a 65nm process chip.  Hexus looks at that news, as well as the upcoming mobile Silverthorne processor.

“Presenting at the International Solid State Circuits Conference in San Francisco this week, Intel is putting forward 14 new papers for review.

In particular, those of special note include updates to its process technology roadmap, offering crumbs of new information on the soon-to-be introduced, mobile-oriented Silverthorne CPU and two-billion transistor, quad-core Itanium 2 processor, Tukwila.”
