Description: Dual core IA-64 processor with Switch on Event MultiThreading (SoEMT), (like Niagara) built on a 90 nm process. Expected to improve on Madison 9M's performance by 2.5 times. To include 2 * 1MB of L2 cache, 2 * 12MB of L3 cache and around 1.7 billion transistors.
Consumes "only" 100W. (Foxton was to clock it up to 2.0 GHz when it was running cool enough, but was canceled.)
The 2.0 GHz / 24 MB versions are delayed until Q2 2006.
Will be named 9000 (9015, 9020, 9030, 9040 and 9050). The 9010 is a single core version.
Die size ~580 mm2 Bus speed 533 / 667 MHz L2 cache 2 * 1MB Core speed 1.6 GHz Transistors 1.72 B Power 100 W Price $696 - $3692 L3 cache 6 - 2 * 12 MB Type Server, 2 x EPIC, Core Montecito
