Except no desktop Nehalem processor will be used in a Mac.
Gainestown/Beckton for the Mac Pro, and mobile processors for the rest.
poop, I shoulda thunk of that oh well, they will be iMac bound eventually.
Cool! Time to upgrade
Do you think that they'll change from mobile to desktop processors in the iMac? It'd give us some more power, but they'd need to be thicker, and I'm not seeing that happening while Jobs and Ive are around.
Hell, who knows. Pricing being cheap for anything in the Nehalem line can only be good though.
And it will probably require three-channel DDR3.
Yes, now you need 3 modules of DDR3, which isn't cheap by any means.
what? i thought ram had to be in pairs? is this changing?
At first it won't be, but like anything it'll come down.
I'll certainly be happy with my Octo 2.8 for a good few years yet. Wonder what Intel will be rocking around say, 2012?
They'll require you to install seventeen DDR6 modules at once. Each module will not come any smaller than two gigabytes.
I would expect Gainestown to be priced similar to Harpertown when they first launched.
And each module has a fan and require a power connection to the powersupply just like videocards.
Nah, it will be liquid-cooled. Maybe even freon or liquid nitrogen.
