2004-11-08 Intel Fanwood / Madison 9M Upgraded Madison with 9 MB of L3 cache. Said to run at 1.6 GHz, and DP chips will include a bus speed increase to 533 MHz (earlier thought to be 667 or 800 MHz), while MP chips stay at 400 for now. The DP chip is called Fanwood while the MP chip is known as Madison 9M. Uses the E8870 chipset.
An upgraded Deerfield (a low voltage Itanium) will also be launched known as Fanwood LV. The first versions use the 400 MHz bus, while chips using a 667 MHz bus will show up in 2005-Q1.
2006-06-19 Intel Woodcrest DP server version of Conroe. Will have FBD (Fully Buffered DIMM) which is said to allow for "stupidly large amounts of RAM". Said to be planned for future Macs. Will be named 5160, 5150, 5140, 5130, 5120 and 5110.
2006-Q2 Intel Dempsey Dual core server processor to succeed Irwindale. An MV Dempsey with a power demand of less than 105 W will also be out. Part of the Bensley platform. Some samples will be out this year. Uses the Greencreek and Blackford chipsets
2006-07-18 Intel Montecito 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.
