Intel is looking forward to bringing leading edge microprocessors and technologies to the market, as it unveiled its plans for the second half of this year. The company expects a six-core processor coming up later in 2008. In addition to “Dunnington,” the codename for the six-core processor, Intel will also bring its new Itanium processor named “Tukwila.”

“Dunnington” for expandable multi-processor servers that is said to become available in the second half of 2008 is based on the 45nm high-k process technology, offers compatibility with systems designed from quad-core Xeon processors and it supports FlexMigration technology, that allows a single compatible virtualization pool to support migration across servers. In addition, it will feature 1.9 billion transistors and 16MB of L3 cache.
