Jayhawk flaps wings, settles back on tree

What could be Intel's first dual-core Xeon DP processor, 'Jayhawk', has had its release pushed back to the middle of next year.

That, at least, is what Xbit Labs is saying, having presumably seen a recent internal roadmap.

Jayhawk's existence was made official last September at Intel Developer Forum, and was given a broad release schedule: some time in the second half of 2004. Set to be fabbed at 90nm, Jayhawk is the successor to 'Nocona', Intel's first 90nm Xeon DP.

Nocona is expected to debut at 3.06GHz to 3.6GHz; Jayhawk is likely to take clock frequencies to 4GHz and beyond.

Nocona is due to ship next quarter, bringing an 800MHz effective bit rate frontside bus to the Xeon DP platform. It will use Intel's 'Lindenhurst' and 'Tumwater' chipsets, which feature PCI Express and DDR 2 SDRAM support in addition to the higher FSB.

Just as the next Xeon MP, 'Potomac', is set to be followed by a dual-core version of the chip, codenamed 'Tulsa', so Jayhawk may be a dual-core implementation of Nocona, though Intel has not confirmed this. ®
