Prepare to have your glasses steamed up.

The Japanese site PC Watch has posted a pic of Intel's McKinley.

At the Intel Developer Forum in San Jose this week CEO Craig Barrett showed McKinley live for the first time, running on prototype 64bit Whistler, Linux IA-64 and HP-UX.

The company gave the clearest signal yet that McKinley, and not the first born Merced Itanic chip, will be the first serious business contender from the IA-64 processor family. But more significantly, McKinley will be a "major new platform release" with chipset support for Direct Infiniband I/O, and Scalability Port, the latter being high speed I/O for the 870 McKinley chipset. ®
