Default Tukwila: world's first 2 billion transistor chip

Quote:
We first head of Intel's quad-core Tukwila back in 2006. Now, it's launching at the International Solid State Circuits Conference. Expected to arrive in the second half of the year, the 2GHz Itanium processor packs in more than 2 billion transistors. Unfortunately, it's headed straight to the raised-floor room, not your consumer-class desktop. The good news for IT types is that the proc doubles the performance of Intel's enterprise-class, 9100-series Montvale processors with just a 25% increase in power consumption. So, we looking at 4 billion transistors by 2010 Mr. Moore? Probably, Tukwila is still using 65-nm processes as opposed to Intel's new 45-nm technology.

Intel has dev teams around the world and their code-names are somewhat representative of their geographical locations... I think

i.e. the Israeli team worked on Merom and Yonah and the like (nehalem is upcoming).

Wow, that was a stretch, but I totally see it.
