Intel announces they are going to Tukwila*

I’m guessing the marketing folks down in Portland are not so familiar with Seattle-area urban lore…

Intel Stacks Up the Chips for Your Future PC

“The latest chip in Intel’s Itanium family for server and high-performance computing systems, Tukwila, is expected to be delivered late this year to servermakers. Systems using the chip will ship in late 2009.

“Tukwila is a 65-nanometer chip and the first quad-core member of the Itanium product family. The processor has more than 2 billion transistors on it.”
